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.
Disclaimer Please note that this seating plan is for illustration purposes. While we've done our best to represent the official seating plan layout accurately, there may be some small differences.
Due to the hexagonal shape the Stalls do not have a centre aisle, like many other venues in the West End. Consisting of 19 rows, the Stalls at the Lyric Theatre are quite comfortable but do not offer much legroom, so taller audience members interested in buying tickets in the stalls should always aim to buy an aisle seat.
The first few rows offer the best views. The seats are raked which means that no views are obstructed by those in front.
Unfortunately there is a downside to that Renaissance style of the Lyric Theatre, as many of its original pillars remain, which often can obstruct the view. Those seats with restricted views are at the rear section of the stalls and are priced lower than other seats in the stalls.
If you want to avoid not being able to see anything during the show, you should not go for the seats in the middle of rows N-R as they are directly in the front of the pillar and even the low price of the ticket will not make your experience worthy.
The best seats in the stalls are seats 9-16 in rows F-J and they are considered to be ‘premium’ seats as they offer the best view of the stage.
Those at the rear of the stalls can also feel quite removed from the action and can be affected by he overhang from the level above.
