Victoria Palace Theatre seating plan - Sections explained


Stalls

The Stalls section of the Victoria Palace Theatre offers the best and most unobstructed views of the stage, especially the central portion. Stalls is the least elevated level and the largest section in the theatre, divided by a large central aisle. The front few rows of this section will need you to crane your neck, so it’s best to avoid them. Instead, choose the central seats and you’ll have some truely mezmerizing views. However, the Royal Circle overhang may affect the rear of the Stalls, but not by much.

Royal Circle

A majority of seats in the Royal Circle are good value for money. These seats will usually offer a great view of the stage, even though they may be a bit far. For large-scale musicals, the central rows of the Royal Circle may even be ideal. The shallow curve in this section ensures that even seats towards the ends of the rows can have a decent view of the stage. A good rake and the stage height come together beautifully to enhance the experience in this section.

Grand Circle

The Grand Circle is the most elevated level of the Victoria Palace Theatre. The best seats of this section are in the middle because a safety rail hinders views from the first few rows while the rear seats are much too far and barely any detail can be seen from there. The back rows are also very budget-friendly, usually.

Which seats offer the best view?


Seats that are towards the centre of the Stalls section usually cost the most money and are premium seats. They also tend to have the best views of the stage. Central seats in the Royal Circle are also considered premium seats and offer a panoramic view of the stage.

Which seats offer the best value for money?


Side seats of the Stalls section as well as the Royal Circle section offer good value for money because they are usually not exorbitantly-priced while offering good views of the stage. As the Royal Circle seats are all similarly priced, it is worth it to buy tickets that are close to the middle of the section.
