Venue overview

The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is one of London’s oldest and most famous theatres. Since opening in 1663, the theatre has provided top-end musial entertainment which has attracted famous celebrities and the Royal Family on numerous occasions. Today, the theatre is renowned for hosting popular long-running musicals, including Shrek the Musical and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with preparations for a revival of 42nd Street in place. The theatre is also renowned for being haunted...

Seating over 2,000 people across four levels and boxes, pricing varies extensively throughout the theatre, which offers excellent, unobstructed views. Due to the sheer size of the theatre, it is possible to feel distant from the stage, but as the stage itself is 22 metres deep, sitting further back allows you to take everything in.

Good value seats

Seats in the Balcony at this theatre are always the cheapest and often the best value for money. Sitting near the front centre provides an excellent unobstructed view of the stage that allows you to absorb the atmosphere of this amazing venue. These seats can often be better than those in the Grand Circle.

Premium seats

Sit in the front of the Royal Circle for the best overall view of the vast stage! Seats 12-24 are dead-centre and avoid any restrictions that could occur in seats towards the ends of rows. Alternatively, sit in the Stalls for a hugely immersive experience devoid of any restrictions.

A great view of the stage! You're close enough that even if you're fairly short, the heads in front don't really block anything and being on the aisle there is slightly more legroom as you can stretch your legs into the aisle. This seat also sticks o... More

This is a fairly good view, albeit at the side of the stage. The seat is a bit old and not very comfy. The leg room is okay, however you do get some people trying to come past to the ice cream seller at the interval.... More
