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.
