Dress Circle guide

The Dress Circle is very shallow and wraps round the stage, feeling very distant from the action. An excellent rake ensures that views are clear in the central section. Slip seats down the side of the Dress Circle have a side-view of the stage. Angled seats can offer a better view if leaning forward onto the safety bar.

Seats towards the ends of rows A-E are restricted due to support pillars, offering only a partial view of the stage. Row C is badly affected, with seats 26-32 and seats 5-8 very restricted.

The best seats are towards the centre. The top row can be uncomfortable as seats are quiet narrow, but they offer a good view of the stage.


A bar is available on this level.


Women’s and Men’s toilets are available on this level.
