Good Value Seats

Seats 5 & 6 and 28 & 29 in the Dress Circle are often discounted as they follow the curve of the balcony. They are the least affected seats in the price reduction, so if you don’t mind having a slightly rounded view of the stage these seats may be a bargain.

Premium Seats

Best views of the stage come from the front Stalls section, around Row B and C. Aim to sit as central as possible, although if not then aisle seats fall within the proscenium and can be just as good.
  • Beautiful

The Aldwych Theatre dates back to 1905, when it was originally designed as a twin theatre to the Novello Theatre, bookending the famous Aldwych. Today the theatre is home to successful musicals and plays, entertaining the large house. The hit musical Dirty Dancing first opened at the theatre, and has recently closed. The theatre is built in similar style to the Novello, in a traditional Georgian design. Based on three levels, the lower stalls are build underground, with the Dress Circle at street level. The theatre is tall and narrow, and offers particularly good views from all levels.
