Royal Festival Hall capacity

Royal Festival Hall Seating Plan

The Royal Festival Hall has a capacity of 2410 seats. Section capacities are 663 Front Stalls , 134 Side Stalls , 997 Rear Stalls and 616 Balcony. Use our interactive seating plan to view 87 seat reviews and 83 photos of views from seat.

Clear views are available from most seats, with a good rake between rows in all levels, although seats towards the back of the rear stalls and balcony can feel distant from the stage.

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.

This is an aisle seat, so the legroom is even better than the rest of the row, but it's generous enough anyway. The raking is quite good (though not as good as the front stalls), but I found the head of the person in front was in the way a bit. Being... More
