Royal Festival Hall Seating Plan

Good value seats

Seats in the first few rows of the front stalls are often priced similarly to seats in the rear stalls. These cheaper seats offer an intimate experience, allowing audience members to feel fully immersed in the performance.

Premium seats

The seats with the best overall views in the Royal Festival Hall are situated in the front stalls, namely in the centre of rows H-M. Seats in the sides of the front stalls are often priced lower than the centre seats, but still offer an intimate, unobstructed view of the stage.

Great budget seat. Think all rear stall you will get a head in front , the big advantage of this seat it slightly off center so you look through shoulders of people in front to central stage unobstructed,a big bunus for a lot of shows. More

The seat is quite comfortable. Legroom is OK, though not great. The view is distant, but acoustics are good (it was fine for Opera North’s Parsifal). The rake is good, so there is little chance of people in front blocking the view. More
