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.

Pretty small theatre so you feel quite close to the stage here, perfect view. The seats are old unfortunately and slightly uncomfortable, and squeaky every time you need to readjust how you’re sitting! More

Right at the front of the stalls, the stage isn't high so you don't have to look up much. Being so close you get to see every single expression, but due to the location of parts of the set you can't see the entire back of the stage. Legroom is adequate,... More

This was right by the entrance to the grand circle and only a few steps down from that door so convenient in that respect. View was good despite the bar as, at my height, the only thing the bar blocked was the entrance hall of the house so I could watch... More
