About the London Palladium

The London Palladium, which recently celebrated its centenary year after opening on 26th December 1910, is one of London’s most prolific and famous performance venues. The theatre boasts beautiful period architecture making each performance feel like a special event. The front of house recently underwent refurbishment to improve facilities to the bathrooms and bars, and is fully accessible for disabled visitors.

The auditorium is divided into three large sections, built with a slight curve around the stage. Sightlines for the theatre are on the whole excellent, as the wide plan view of each level is unobstructed by overhang or pillars.

Big Budget Tip

The front of the dress circle provides the best overall view of the stage, and places you in the centre of the action throughout some of the surprise ‘appearances’ The Wizard of Oz has to offer…

Best Value Tip

The front two rows of the Upper Circle do provide excellent views of the stage, if you can negotiate your way around the safety bar! Although the theatre labels them ‘restricted view’, they do provide excellent value for money.

    With its iconic choreography and songs such as "What I Did For Love" and "One (Singular Sensation)," one of Broadway's most legendary musicals returns to the West End for the first time since its original run. Though the Palladium is a wide venue with sightline problems on the ends of aisles, because this production famously does not have a set, visibility should be less of an issue and you may be able to find bargain seats on the ends of aisles.
