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.

I didn't want to choose front row as I wasn't sure the stage would be too high and restrict the overall view. This seat was to the right but a great view - I could see all action and being short in height, I don't suffer from legroom problems in most... More

Got an upgrade from upper circle so view was a lot better, only one bit of the show slightly missed from this seat. Seat comfortable and okay legroom but I did knock my knee on the binoculars once or twice. More

The seats at this theatre are all very small and tattered! Definitely in desperate need of a refurb! Legroom in Row J is good because you have an aisle in front of you! This also helps with the view because it means the people in front are much further... More
