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.

There is a good, steep rake here so no problems looking over heads. Although the legroom isn’t the most generous, because the seat back is well below knee level it is comfortable. Excellent view of the whole stage. More
