Venue overview

The Palace Theatre is located in the middle of Cambridge Circus and is one of the West End's most prolific buildings. Originally built as a Grand Opera House, the theatre is best-known for housing Les Miserables before it transferred to the Queen's Theatre after 7,602 performances. Other notable productions have included Singin' in the Rain and the current Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The auditorium features beautiful Victorian architecture, including a majestic ceiling and proscenium arch which frames the stage. Split across four levels, views are extremely mixed throughout the Palace Theatre, which features one of the steepest balconies in the entire West End. A tall and narrow theatre, there are restricted views due to support pillars and safety rails.

Good value seats

Seats towards the rear of each section are heavily discounted, due to circle overhangs, support pillars and distance from the stage. These can prove good value for money, particularly for a large-scale musical. The Balcony is extremely cheap, due to severe restrictions. It is worth sitting in the front of the Balcony, as although it may feel distant, you may still get a good view. Alternatively, sit in the middle of the Grand Circle for a safety rail-free view of the stage.

Premium seats

Seating in the front of the Dress Circle or in the centre of the Stalls is the optimum place to have the most immersive experience without any restrictions. Rows G-K in the Stalls are best as the stage is quite high and a decent rake allows for action to be at eye level. Due to the mixed views throughout the Palace Theatre, it's wise to spend a little bit extra to guarantee there will be no restrictions to impair your enjoyment.

This seat is very good if you're looking for a Dress Circle seat that's close to the stage. Even though it's restricted (if you are sitting normally you miss about half of the stage) you can still take in the play and enjoy it! It gets uncomfortable the... More

Fantastic view - all of the stage was visible. Only had to lean forward when one of the characters moves into the stall aisle. But you don't miss much. There's not a lot of leg room between the rows (I'm 5ft 10), but this seat is on the aisle, so I... More

Could see all of the stage and the action and didn’t feel to far away from the stage. These were sold as restricted view but the railings never bothered us. For the price we paid we were amazed with the view we had. 100% worth it even with the leg room.... More
