Good Value Seats

There are a lot of restricted view seats in the Upper Circle that are heavily discounted. Some of these provide an almost faultless view of the stage, so it can be worth risking it for those seats closer to the middle and furthest from the railings.

Premium Seats

Front of the Dress Circle is definitely the best place to sit, owing to its compact size and distance to the stage. Not only will you be on a level with the performers, you will also be best placed to admire the beautiful detail in the auditorium itself.
  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

    Coming to the Palace theatre in Summer 2016 is the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. This so far untold story of the boy wizard is written by J.K. Rowling, playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany and promises to be a real treat for Potter fans.


Set in the middle of Cambridge Circus, acting as a welcome to Theatreland, the Palace Theatre is one of the West End’s most prolific buildings. Originally built to be a Grand Opera House, the theatre is now known for hosting the world’s longest running musical Les Miserables before it transferred to the Queen’s after 7,602 performances. The auditorium features beautiful Victorian architecture including a majestic ceiling and proscenium artwork that frame the stage. Divided into four levels, the theatre can prove difficult for sightlines as it features one of the steepest balconies in the whole of the West End. The theatre is tall and narrow and features restricted view seats due to pillars and safety rails that should be avoided for maximum enjoyment.
