Good Value Seats

Seats in the Balcony at this theatre are always the cheapest and often the best value for money. Sitting near the front centre provides an excellent unobstructed view of the stage that allows you to absorb the atmosphere of this amazing venue.

Premium Seats

For a unique experience why not try sitting in one of the many boxes the theatre has to offer. Although sightlines in each box vary depending on their location, the intimate experience will be similar whichever one you choose. After all, if it good enough for Royalty….

The Theatre Royal on Drury Lane is one of London’s oldest and most famous theatres. Since opening in 1663, the theatre has provided top-end entertainment which has attracted famous Monarchs on numerous occasions. Today, the theatre is renowned for hosting popular long running musicals, including Shrek the Musical and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Seating over 2000 people across four levels and boxes, pricing varies extensively throughout the theatre, which offers excellent, unobstructed views. Due to the sheer size of the theatre, it is possible to feel distant from the stage, but as the stage itself is 22 metres deep, sitting further back allows you to take everything in.
