Good value seats

The front row of the Dress Circle is often discounted due to the curve of the balcony and offers exceptional value for money. Although there is slightly limited legroom, these seats are a great place to sit. Row E of the Dress Circle is usually discounted but offers great views. Avoid the Upper Circle where possible.

Premium seats

The Stalls provide the best view of the stage, with no restrictions even at the very rear of the seating. Aim to sit as centrally as possible, as a gradual rake means that your view may be blocked by audience members seated at the rear. Alternatively, sit in the first three rows of the Dress Circle for musicals.

This is the worst theatre seat I have ever sat in. Leg room is none existent with only a hand's width between the front of the chair and the seat back in front. The seats cushions in row A in front had been removed so many of us had our legs over the... More
