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.

Excellent seat, really close to the action and allows you to see all the details. But being so close, you are looking up a little and the legroom is a little narrow when people are passing. But generally couldn't recommend more! More

This view really isn't good. As I was there for a concert, the restricted view didn't ruin my enjoyment but if you were watching a show with full sets etc, you'd have your view restricted by the curve of the front of the upper circle, as well as the people... More

I was worried about the view from this seat but for a bargain price I was pleasantly surprised! There is only a low bar running across the front of the gallery so you can still see the whole stage & no worry of tall people in front! Lots of leg room too. More
