Shaftesbury Theatre Seating Plan
Copied

Good value seats

Bargains can be found towards the rear of the Royal Circle, which can feel distant from the stage but still offers an overall good view. Seats in the Grand Circle are often reduced, but try to sit centrally in seats 14-24 to avoid as much restriction as possible.

Premium seats

The best in the Shaftesbury Theatre are located in the centre of the Stalls, in rows D-H, seats 10-26. Sitting centrally allows for the best overall experience as you can see the entire stage. The front rows of the Royal Circle also offer great views, particularly in rows A-D, seats 12-24.

We were seated in the third from last row of the Grand Circle. The view to the stage isn’t too bad, although I had a tall person sitting in the row but one below me, which cut off the very front centre of the stage, which is used several times. Th... More
