The theatre also has plenty of seating, arranged into three Galleries which are on three sides of the thrust stage. In the theatre’s benched seating areas, row E is a great choice if you want a little more back support when watching a show. Cushions are also available to rent.

Good value seats

The cheapest way to watch a play at the Globe is by standing in the Yard. Tickets here are unreserved, and you are free to move around for the best view before the performance starts. In the Lower Gallery, the bays at either side of the stage and seats at the end of rows are restricted because of pillars, but offer a good seated experience for less.

Premium seats

The best seats in the house are in the central bays of the Lower and Middle Galleries. The Lower Gallery is just above stage height, with a clear view from the middle rows. Actors tend to project to the Middle Gallery, so this a very desirable section to sit in.

No back rest and not a lot of leg room, but not the worst seat. The view is great - middle gallery gives a good angle on the stage and this seat has a pretty clear view. Only the downstage right corner is obscured very slightly More
