How to Buy Cheap London Theatre Tickets?

  • London TKTS: The London TKTS booth located at Leicester Square will give you discounted tickets, sometimes at half the price! You can check the availability of tickets for a particular show on the official London TKTS website.  
  • Lottery Tickets: A limited number of tickets for London Theatre shows are part of the daily lottery. By taking part in the lottery, you stand a chance to win London theatre tickets for as little as £20. Keep in mind that entries are accepted prior to 2 hours and 30 minutes before the show.

London Theatre - How to Find the Best Seats for West End Shows?

  • Stalls: If you are looking for seats with the best views, look no further. Since they are closest to the stage, they are the most popular seats in the house as well as the most expensive. 
  • Dress Circle: The section of seats right above the Stalls is known as Dress Circle or Royal Circle. The middle part of the Dress Circle usually gives a great view of the stage. 
  • Grand Circle: If you are looking for cheap London Theatre tickets, make your way to the Grand Circle or the upper Circle. While the view from here is nothing to write home about, some sections may provide you with decent views of the stage.
  • Balcony: Located right above the Grand Circle is the Balcony section. However, since the balcony is located at a considerable distance from the stage, don’t expect a great view even though you may find some of the cheapest tickets here.
