Venue overview

The St Martin's Theatre was built as a pair with the Ambassadors Theatre, both opening in 1916. Tucked away in the Seven Dials, the intimate venue has been home to many small-scale productions, before hosting the world's longest-running play The Mousetrap, where it has continued to play into its 60th year. The small, intricate space is perfect for Agatha Christie's thriller, which has been entertaining audiences for over half a century.

The auditorium is smaller than most West End venues, and is split across three levels. Views of the stage are particularly good from most areas, although safety rails and overhangs can cause restriction. The seats are not the most comfortable, so aisle seats are recommended if you require additional leg room.

Good value seats

Sit in the Upper Circle for some great views at a discounted price. Views are unobstructed, especially in the back row, and chances are you will be allowed to move down into the more expensive seats just before the show starts. Even if you are not so lucky, these seats are good value for money as the theatre is small enough to enjoy the play without obstruction.

Premium seats

The best seats in the house are located towards the front of the Dress Circle. The section feels relatively low, and so views from this level are almost direct with the stage. Aim to sit in the central section, perhaps two rows from the front.

Front row of the stalls. Ample leg room. Stage isn’t too high so not looking up to much. Great close view to see the play in close detail and the terrific performances. A day seat too. Highly recommend the front row. More

Cramped, very very cramped. With the added complication that spot lights are right under your nose, so this seat runs very very hot as well. View of the stage is very nice, and the sound from the actors comes clean and clear. More

Front row and centre! The stage is a little high but I don’t feel like you are looking up at all. Comfy seats with decent legroom. An absolute bargain at the day seat rate. Clear view, very close to the action, you can see all of the details of the beautiful... More
