The Victoria Palace Theatre is built on the site of one of London's first music hall venues and is a large building built in a classical style. Away from the West End opposite Victoria Station, the theatre has a large capacity and has been plagued with a string of musical flops until the 2005 hit Billy Elliot which continues to run at the venue.
The theatre is built in a traditional style with three levels and can feel a little overwhelming due to the relatively small size of the stage. Each level is quite well raked and is curved around each balcony, giving different levels of visibility throughout. Prices vary accordingly and it is worth knowing how much you wish to spend against how close you wish to be.
Big Budget Tip
Premium seats are towards the centre of the Stalls. In our opinion these are better than those in the Dress Circle. Mid stalls seats offer a generally better view of the stage.
Best Value Tip
Due to the rake of the stage, some restricted view seats in the Stalls offer great value for money. You may miss out on the actors feet, but you will not get so close for so little anywhere else in the West End!
