Venue overview

The Leicester Square Theatre is situated on the site of a former theatre which was destroyed in World War II. Rebuilt in 1953 as the Notre Dame Hall, the venue has been known as Cavern in the Town and The Venue, before settling as the Leicester Square Theatre in 2003.

There are two theatrical spaces in the theatre, with the Main House seating 400 and the Lounge Theatre seating 65. The Main House is one large block of seating in the Stalls. There are two support pillars restricting the view in Row P, however there are excellent views throughout the auditorium. The best views can be found in the middle of Row C to H.

Good value seats

Most shows in the venue offer one ticket price for all seats, however on the odd occasion some seats at the far sides of the auditorium and in the very back rows Q-R can be a touch cheaper. These seats, especially the side seats, still offer relatively good views of the stage.

Premium seats

Seats in the centre of rows C-G have excellent views of the stage and are often the same price as the majority of the seats in the theatre. These seats are optimum for viewing onstage action. Alternatively, sit in the front rows for the most immersive experience of intimate plays.

The seat is very central to the theatre but quite close to the stage so it's quite hard to watch the whole stage at once. On the other hand, facial expressions are very clear. The rake in the theatre is terrible, in fact I felt like I was lower down than... More

Most of the stage was visible except a couple of entrances on the left hand side of the stage, otherwise an excellent view. The seat was pretty comfortable and there was enough legroom for a bag and coat. More
