Good Value Seats

The front row of the Upper Circle is the second cheapest price tier in the theatre. Although leg room can be very tight, it is possible to enjoy the performance from here, once a good view around the safety bar has been established!

Premium Seats

Premium seats are around the centre of rows F-G, although other seats around them offer an equally good view. With most of the seats in the Stalls priced the same, aim to sit five or six rows back from the front for the best experience.
  • Mrs Henderson Presents

    Terry Johnson directs Mrs Henderson Presents, the musical based on the beloved 2005 film of the same name starring Judi Dench. Following the exploits of Laura Henderson and her hand in the creation of one of the most iconic theatres in London, this welcome addition to the West End previously enjoyed a critically acclaimed run at the Theatre Royal Bath.

    Booking from 28 Apr 2016 to 18 Jun 2016


The Noel Coward Theatre, formerly the Albery, is situated in the heart of Covent Garden. Built as the pair of Wyndham's Theatre, the venue was built by Charles Wyndham in 1903. Originally the New Theatre, the name was changed in 2006 as the West End transfer of Broadway's Avenue Q came in. Today, the theatre has a quick turnaround of top quality musicals and plays.

Very grand and traditional in style, the theatre is spread across four levels and seats almost 900 audience members. Views are more restricted at the ends of rows and in higher sections of the auditorium, especially because rows are in a horseshoe shape around the stage.
