Gielgud Theatre Seating Plan

The Gielgud Theatre has a capacity of 974 seats. Section capacities are 507 Stalls , 220 Dress Circle and 247 Grand Circle. Use our interactive seating plan to view 3168 seat reviews and 1860 photos of views from seat.

Good value seats

Due to the shape of the Dress Circle, a number of seats are restricted view, particularly towards the ends of rows A and B. These seats face the stage at an angle, but provide an intimate view of the action. Alternatively, sit in the Grand Circle for a bargain!

Premium seats

The best seats are located towards the mid-rear of the Stalls, just underneath the Dress Circle overhang. Seats towards the front of the theatre may miss some of the action on stage, due to the height of the stage. Sit in rows N-P for the best overall views.

Recommended Box Seats

Upgrade your experience by booking one of the Gielgud Theatre box seats on your next visit to watch the show with added privacy. Located at the rear of the Dress Circle, the theatre has three boxes, all of which boast a private entrance away from the crowds in the rest of the auditorium and quick access to both the toilets and bar in the interval.

Box F is a large, spacious box with two rows of seats – 6 in the front row and a further 4 seats on a raised platform behind them. It is recommended to book seats in the front row, which include an uninterrupted view of the stage, which one SeatPlan user who sat in Box F Seat 10 described as “exceptional for the price”.

Alternatively, Box E and Box G are situated on either side of Box F and contain 4 seats each. The view is clear and unobstructed and SeatPlan users have complimented the value and overall comfort of experiencing the show from a private box. The boxes in the Gielgud Theatre are a great value way to make your next visit unique and memorable.

Pretty comfortable seat and despite being further back, there was no risk of someone's head blocking my view really. I did feel a little distant from the action but still enjoyed the show immensely, so this didn't subtract much at all. Good leg room and... More

You have to look up a little bit as the stage is slightly above you and this is the front row BUT do not let that put you off! It didn’t bother me at all and you feel completely in the action of it all! I can’t recall any moments where you miss anything... More

Legroom etc fine, good space, but the rhs of stage was obscured and this should really be a cheaper price. I didn’t realise there was someone on rhs all through act 1 at a piano as they were hidden! My mum told me in the interval! Luckily most action... More
