Gielgud Theatre Seating Plan
Copied

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.

Good view - missed a tiny section of the stage, right at the front. I couldn’t see two musicians without leaning forward but didn’t miss any of the action. Seats were comfortable enough, and enough legroom for someone 5’4. More

As you can see on the photo, a tall guy was blocking a little bit the view but wasn’t that big of a deal. You can see almost the whole stage (there’s only one scene I couldn’t see because the ceiling blocked but wasn’t that important). I didn’t feel... More

Pretty sub-par in terms of comfort and legroom. A bit of a gamble in the stalls but it’s alright if you’re quite short. Depends who you get in front of you, but I had a perfect view of the stage. All actors completely visible. More
