Lyric Theatre Seating Plan

Good value seats

Due to the shape of the auditorium and the number of pillars in the Lyric Theatre there are several restricted view seats at lower cost, which could be good for those looking to view the show on a budget - especially if they have seen the show before. Seats surrounding premium seats in the Stalls offer a very similar view for around £20 less!

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the centre of the Stalls in rows F-J. These seats have the best view overall view of the stage, which is reflected in ticket pricing. Alternatively, seats in the front and centre of the Dress Circle can offer a great view!

Recommended Box Seats

Upgrade your date night or treat your friends to an unforgettable evening by booking a private box on your next visit to the Lyric Theatre. The Lyric Theatre box seats are primarily located in the Dress Circle with 4 boxes running down each side of the auditorium. Ranging between two and three seats, all of the boxes contain freestanding chairs that allow patrons to maximise their view and comfort.

The box seats, particularly those in Box L , Box H and Box C , received strong reviews from SeatPlan users who gave 5 stars for both legroom and overall comfort. Priced comparably to seats in the Grand Circle, the Dress Circle boxes offer great value and an elevated experience due to the privacy and additional space for you and your party.

Stalls H4

The view is excellent from this seat. You're a nice distance from the stage and the stage is high enough that you don't have people's heads in the way in front of you. Legroom is good as well and there's space under the seats to store coats and bags. More
