Simply click on a seat to access user reviews. We might not have reviews for every seat yet, and some seats only have one or two reviews so far. It makes sense to check them all to make sure the opinions expressed are representative and trustworthy.

The highest section of the Gielgud Theatre, the Grand Circle is divided into a front and rear section.
The best seats can be found in the middle of the front section. There is a safety bar in front of row A, which affects the view for those audience members sat there. End on seats offer restricted views of the stage due to the curved shape of the Grand Circle.
Seats in the rear of this section feel really distant and far away from the stage, it is very hard to make out any detail and those audience members who like to feel immersed in the action taking place on stage should avoid this section of the theatre.
If you suffer from acrophobia and have experienced vertigo in the past you should purchase tickets in other parts of the venue, as being located so high up can definitely hinder your experience.
For those that are after a bargain and do not mind feeling uncomfortable; restricted view seats in row AA can be purchased at £12 each, but it is worth knowing that a safety rail will be in directly in your line of view, hence you will have to lean forward to enjoy an unobstructed view.
The Grand Circle at the Gielgud Theatre is not for those who are after comfort as legroom is very restricted here and taller audience members are advised to avoid this section.
Unfortunately this section of the theatre is not wheelchair accessible and should be avoided by those with reduced mobility issues.
