Dress Circle guide

The Dress Circle is directly above the Stalls and is a single block of seating that curves around the stage, seating fewer than 300 people, making this the smallest section of the theatre. Two Boxes sit either side of the seating, offering side-angled, partially restricted views of the stage.

Rows A-C have better legroom and very good views of the stage. Two support pillars are at either end of Row C, causing slight restrictions to those positioned directly behind.

Rows become shorter toward the rear of the seating, with rows G-J classed as restricted view, due to the Grand Circle’s heavy overhang. The Dress Circle is inaccessible to those with limited mobility.


A Dress Circle bar is available at this level.


Men’s and Women’s toilets are reachable by steps from this level.
