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.

This was the front row for this production, and the legroom was excellent and the seat comfortable. I've sat in a lot of front rows in the West End, and the stage here was noticeably high - it was above head height when sitting. A lot of the action... More

A very average seat toward the rear of the Upper Circle. This seat is on the end of the aisle, which allows for slightly more legroom that in the centre, where legroom is very limited. It's a fairly comfortable seat, although I did find that I was fi... More
