Venue overview

The New Wimbledon Theatre is one of London's largest regional theatres, and is owned by the Ambassadors Theatre Group, with several professional touring productions passing through each year. A beautiful Grade II listed Edwardian building, the theatre opened in 1910 and has since been refurbished twice but retains its original baroque features. Situated in Wimbledon, it is close to all transport links.

With a seating capacity of 1,670 across three levels, it is the eighth largest theatre in London and has often been used to premiere new musicals before they transfer to the West End. Delivering a range of family entertainment, pantomimes and musicals, it is one of the most prolific venues in the city.

With a large proscenium arch stage, the New Wimbledon Theatre is perfect for large scale musicals and has achieved a fantastic national reputation, offering great views throughout the auditorium.

Good value seats

The best seats can be found in the Stalls, in central seats that face the stage head-on. Row J is particularly good, as there is excellent legroom and it does not feel too close to the stage. Alternatively sitting in the mid-front of the Dress Circle is a great option for large-scale musicals.

Premium seats

Seats in the Upper Circle tend to be less expensive than those in the Stalls or Dress Circle, and often provide excellent value for money, with no restrictions. Alternatively sitting in the mid-rear of the Dress Circle can be an absolute bargain, with seats towards the ends of rows being a lot cheaper for an equally great view.

The view from this seat is good, the overhang from the upper circle is in sight, and would affect the view if there were set pieces up high. Seats are reasonably comfortable, although the short arms rests were a bit annoying. Legroom wasnt amazing, but... More

No seats are directly in front of you so you have plenty of legroom. The seats aren't the most comfortable and as this show was 2 hours with no interval, near the end I did get a little fidgety, but it is bearable and nothing can be done about that. This... More

The New Wimbledon theatre is tired and it shows in the comfort of the seats. They are narrow and not that padded. Leg room is nothing special but wasn't cramped. The view from here is quite good - it's close but as it's close to the aisle it starts... More
