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.

The second row has quite restricted leg room which can make it uncomfortable very quickly. The view is good here but if you have a tall person in front of you then you might have a problem. The stage is quite low so heads will block your view of footwork... More

I love sitting in the front row at The Lane. You get an uninterrupted view and a much better amount of legroom when compared to the rest of the venue. Being this close to the stage and also the pit gives you such an immersive experience of a large show... More

Great central view of the stage. Its a very immersive experience when you're this close to such a large stage. Leg room is tight here which can make it a bit uncomfortable after a while. I'd recommend sitting elsewhere if you're a bit taller than me. More
