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.

Very comfortable seat, I'm 5' 5" and still had leg room between my knees and the seat in front. Seat is side on to the stage, so depending on the show, you may miss some action at the side. This did not impact the grinch. And the handrail disappears... More

A great seat for the price (£17) which is close to the stage. Only one moment was missed when an actor leaned on the right edge of the proscenium arch, as there is a set of steps which lead up to the stage. The legroom is fairly reasonable when A is the... More

The seat has less legroom than its neighbour when A is the front row. The view of the stage is nice and close, however a little action is obscured by the handrail from the steps that lead to the stage. More
