Venue overview

The Other Palace, formerly the St James Theatre, has two separate performance spaces and is well-known for its diverse theatre programme, which provides a platform for new productions. Opening in 2012 on the site of the demolished Westminster Theatre, the building is designed by Foster Wilson Architects. In 2017, the renovated venue reopened as The Other Palace, after Andrew Lloyd Webber purchased the building in 2016.

The venue has hosted many original productions, including the 2014 premiere of Urinetown, as well as Putting it Together and Tell Me On a Sunday.

With the main theatre featuring a seating capacity of 312 and the smaller studio seating 120, seats can be reconfigured depending on the production. An intimate theatre, the main auditorium offers excellent views from all seats, with a steep rake and no obvious restrictions. There is a slight curve to each row, but you are able to see the whole stage from wherever you are sat.

Good value seats

Sitting in rows M-N are great value for money! These seats are usually heavily discounted but offer an amazing view of the stage. Equally, seats at the ends of rows are amazing value, as there is a great view for a fraction of other prices!

Premium seats

Sit in the mid-centre for the best overall views. If watching a musical, rows F-J are best, as they allow you to see the whole stage. Sit close-up for plays and one-off concerts.

With The Other Palace all the seats are very similar due to how it is set up. The backs are quite high and straight, can become uncomfortable and the legroom isn't the best. But there was absolutely no issue with the view! More

Not huge amounts of legroom and I am very short so taller people would definitley struggle. View was amazing - feels really close and the seats are well raked so the people sitting in front of me didn't get in the way at all. More

The view was faultless, as there is a heavy rake there is no chance of a head in the way of the stage, even for a shorter person! However, the seats themselves aren’t the best comfort, there isn’t much leg room (I am 6’2) and there isn’t much room either... More
