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.

This is a small theatre and felt very intimate. You have to remember this is an old theatre so the seats are narrow and tight. The legroom is poor, I'm 5ft 2 and my knees almost touched the seat in front, by the interval I had cramp. The view was great,... More

This seat for the money was great! Provided a full (but slightly high) view of the stage and as the theatre is small you still feel very close to the action and can see the facial expressions of the actors very well (which is important!). The legroom... More
