Shaftesbury Theatre capacity

Shaftesbury Theatre Seating Plan

The Shaftesbury Theatre has a capacity of 1408 seats. Section capacities are 750 Stalls , 395 Royal Circle and 263 Grand Circle. Use our interactive seating plan to view 4112 seat reviews and 2992 photos of views from seat.

The front Stalls are split into two sections, with the two aisles in the rear Stalls splitting the back into a further three. The Royal and Grand Circles suffer from some sight-line problems in certain rows which causes the back of the stage to be obscured.

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.

Great Central seat with excellent view of the whole stage. The only down side is that there is a screen along the back wall, which is partly obscured from these seats. It doesn't show anything important to the story so doesn't really matter but is a... More

This was actually front row so legroom was obviously great. The view was a bit restricted due to the height of the stage so you couldn't see what was going on low down actually on the floor of the stage but you didn't really miss much. Plus you had the... More
