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.
Curved in a horseshoe shape, similarly to the Dress Circle, the Grand Circle consists of one main block and two small blocks at the front. The best seats are those in the middle of the larger block.
The end seats in the Grand Circle tend to have a restricted view due to the shape of the section and should not be purchased unless at a reduced price. The worst seats are in Row AA not only due to restricted views but also because of terribly restricting legroom.
Safety rails run in front of rows AA and row A causing an obstruction of the view. Comfort in this part of the theatre leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to the lower parts of the venue. Rows AA and A are particularly bad, and those in sitting in seats 12 and 13 in row AA will find that a lighting box fixed in front of those seats will make their experience less enjoyable. The overhang from the Balcony begins at row D and affects the view from row E back. Generally the seats in the rear of this section should also be avoided as the view feels very distant and one can feel quite removed from the action on stage.
Those members of the audience who are planning on attending with children should consider sitting in the other part of the theatre. The Grand Circle in the Novello Theatre should be avoided by those patrons with reduced mobility and it is not wheelchair accessible.
