Venue overview

The Theatre Royal Haymarket was named in 1855, despite being a venue since 1720. Famous theatre manager Herbert Beerbohm Tree took over the theatre in the late 1880’s, transforming it into a successful platform for plays towards the end of the Victorian period.

The theatre has premiered Ibsen’s Ghosts and Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance, continuing to showcase traditional high-quality drama throughout the twentieth century. In recent years, seasons have been presented by prolific directors such as Trevor Nunn and Jonathan Kent.

Built in a traditional Victorian style, the theatre is one of the most impressive auditoriums, seating 893 people over four levels. Views can be varied due to the curve of the seating, which means some seats offer side-angled views. Restricted view seats are clearly labelled.

Good value seats

Sit towards the ends of rows in the Stalls and Royal Circle for some bargains, even when the balcony is curved. Restricted view seats in the Upper Circle provide great value for money, as there are limited restrictions that would hinder overall enjoyment!

Premium seats

The best seats in the house are available throughout the Stalls, more specifically in the centre seats of rows E-J. Alternatively, the front three rows of the Royal Circle have great views, even in seats towards the ends of rows. Sit as centrally as possible for the best overall view.

For one of the cheaper seat options I think this offers a decent view. You miss a section of the stage on your side, but thankfully nothing too major happens there in this particular show. You get a slight domino effect with the front two rows leaning... More

These tickets were sold at a very low price saying there was a major view restriction and stating that we WOULD be looking through a perspex so we were ready for a not so good view, but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised how good the view was.... More
