Venue overview

Sadler's Wells is located in Angel, Islington and dates back to the late 1600's. In 1844, it was relaunched as the Theatre Royal Sadler's Wells, and was home to many Shakespeare productions. Lilian Baylis revived the theatre after its days as a cinema, with the new building in opening in 1931. In 1998, the theatre was redesigned with funding from the National Lottery and is now home to international touring dance companies, including regular productions by Matthew Bourne.

Set over three levels, the theatre is very large and modern, ensuring excellent sight-lines on all levels and minimal obstruction, with comfortable seating. Boxes run down the side of each section, with slips providing good value for money.

Good value seats

Restricted view seats provide excellent value for money for those on a budget. For most performances, the first two rows in the Stalls are restricted due to the proximity to the stage, as the stage is quite high. The back row of the First Circle is also typically reduced in price.

Premium seats

For most dance performances, the best views can be found further back from the stage. Sitting in the middle of the Stalls or in the very front of the First Circle provides the best experience and a panoramic view of the stage.

Like the other user saying the seat is not that bad. Far from stage but with almost full view (only small part of corner is blocked by rail, which is not an issue at all). Leg room is comfy enough with left side extra room. Good value for a budget ti... More

The second to last row of the first circle is not bad if needing to see the show on a budget. Your view is slightly obstructed by the overhang of the second circle, but not so much so it is annoying and you don't miss any action in this particular sh... More
