The following is based on "first look" in August 2021. Readers are encouraged to send their own opinions to expand on this.

  • Stalls
  • Stalls Boxes
  • Dress Circle
  • Dress Circle Boxes

Stalls

Layout

A single block of seats faces the stage. The rows curve slightly towards the centre – most noticeably back to row J. Row Q does not curve and is flat against the back wall.

The circle overhangs the stalls at row G in the centre, and clips the view at the sides from row D.

The rake (slope of the floor raising seats above the row in front) begins at row F and is noticeable from row G. It is fairly effective in all rows. Seats are not, however, off-set to see between the shoulders of those in front.

Seats at the ends of rows A, B and C can be removed to provide wheelchair spaces.

Row Q is in an alcove with a wall beside the outermost seats. The exit doors are level with row P.

Seats have a holder at the back for programmes / in-flight magazines / Covid Passport paperwork etc...

Legroom

Rows A and F have the most. Row A, with nothing in front of it (extra rows could be inserted depending on the production) has unlimited legroom.

Row F is suitable for those up to around 6ft or so.

All other rows are suitable for those up to around 5ft 11 except B, C and D which should suit those up to at least 5ft 8.

The seats are higher off the ground than average and should provide extra comfort for the taller person.

Seats E1, F1, F23 and G24 have nothing in front. Seat D17 is clear over 90% of its width.
 

Choosing seats in general

The walls narrow to the stage at row E, meaning that seats at the ends of row F back are close to facing a wall. Luckily, the stage opening is wide enough that it isn’t an issue - but be aware that if a production has critical action taking place at the stage edges, then going at least 2 seats off the aisle is a good idea.

Also as a general note, seats are not “off-set” to see between those in front. To be safe, the shorter theatremonkey should try the dress circle, as the rake can’t be entirely relied on.

Provided the stage is low and row A does not have extra rows inserted in front of it, then that is the place to be. Good view guaranteed. Behind it in row B anyone over 5ft 7 or so shouldn’t have much problem unless a huge gorilla sits in front. 

Wheelchair users get an excellent deal, with their places at the ends of rows A to C being outstandingly well positioned and close to the stage – which makes a nice change.

Prime seats are central rows E to K – far enough back to take in the stage, and with the slope to help see over those in front. The monkey also liked the extra legroom row end seats D17, E1, F1, F23 and G24.

The circle overhang isn’t much of an issue for most seats. Only purists will grouch at the end of row D back as the curve removes the top corner. Further back, only rows P and Q (plus the outer 4 seats in row O) miss the stage top entirely, but it is unlikely much will happen there. If the price drops in any of these rows, it is a decent deal, feels the monkey.

A sound desk inserted in the rear stalls area should not bother anybody around it, as it is compact with walled edges that should not intrude into the view.
 

General hazard notes

The seats are not off-set to see around those in front.

Row Q may feel claustrophobic to some in the end seats.

Someone may leave something nasty in the seat-back programme holders...
 

Changes for the current production

People, Places and Things
The front row is A, top non-premium price. The stage is about eye-level to a 5ft 7 monkey, meaning looking upwards. Also, the stage has a thick "surround" to it, meaning the end seat won't see the side wall animations. The outer pairs on A are discounted to second price to allow for that, so the monkey would take 2 and 13 first, rather than the outermost seat, for a better angle.

To counteract the stage height, monkey feeling is to take C first, then B. Also note the first and last seat in B to D are not discounted but also don't have a prime view of the side wall animations - worth taking last, it feels.

Premium seats run central D to K. There is plenty of decent stuff beside them, in front on B and C or behind in L and M.

Prices drop at row O, P and Q. Take these rows over the ones in front and save bananas for identical views. Note that in particular row Q is much cheaper than P and has to be a good deal, even Q11 and 17 beside the sound desk, once Q10 and 18 are gone. The desk probably won't bother anyone except purists.

Seats on Stage
As in the previous run of the play at Wyndham's Theatre in 2016, there are three short rows of seats on the stage.

They are in three rows, split by a centre aisle which is used in the show. The front row is around 10cm below stage height, the other two are raised about 50cm above each other on steps. Legroom is fine for those up to about 5ft 10 in row A, nearly 6ft in rows B and C.

The seats are plastic, thinly padded, no arm-rests, quite high-backed and with an odd moulded shape and unexpected bit of metal in the upright. Some will find them uncomfortable, but the play should overcome that. The first scene is viewed through a thin screen, and you have to leave your seats during the interval. Neither of these is an issue. Access for some - via two short flights of steps and a narrow door, could be, but staff will assist.

Seats are not "offset" to see around those in front, so the monkey did wonder slightly if taller people would block views for those in rows B and C, and would welcome feedback. For that reason it suggests row A is the bet bet. First pick are A 3 to 10, and maybe B 6 and 7, then the rest of A. These seats are THE place to see the show from. So close, thrillingly so, and the area got a personal murmur of thanks from the star as she took her final bows.

Note: for person sitting in AA12, there is a moment about 5 minutes into the play where the thin net in front of you falls. At that point a stagehand will charge past you to retrieve it - so do not leave your bag out or place your legs where they can fall over you.

 

The 39 Steps
The front row is not yet confirmed, The monkey will update as available.

Currently the first row on sale is C at top non-premium price - the outer pairs are also not yet on sale in the row, presumably as steps onto the stage may be added there (maybe 39 of them - not). Still, should be a good choice - most central first. No word on stage height, but in the past it has not been that high, notes the monkey.

There are very few premium seats. Central row D package seats are interesting as the price difference between them and top non-premium price makes the extras you get decent value if you are going to want a drink and programme anyway.

Official premium seats run central E and F. The package deal in front is better value, and there is plenty of decent top non-premium stuff beside them, in front on D or behind on G, in particular.

Not much point taking L at top non-premium price, as M behind it is at second - the same view, cheaper.

Prices drop again at Q. Take this over P and again save bananas for identical views. Row Q is a good deal cheaper than P and the only way to be in the stalls and closer to the action at a lower price. The back row of the circle is the only cheaper alternative to these. For the shorter, circle row K at the same money is also a good deal and the elevation may help seeing over heads in front. While on the subject, even cheaper, M up there has a similar view. So, circle if shorter, stalls to be closer. 

No sound desk is planned, so no disruption in row Q for purists.
 

 

The Duchess
The front row is not yet confirmed, as a row AA may be added in front of A. The monkey will update as available.

Currently the first row on sale is A, second price, which is really about top non-premium price for most other plays. Still it, and the outer 3 seats on row B at the same bananas have to be the way to go, most central first. No word on stage height, but in the past it has not been that high, notes the monkey.

Top non-premium price (premium level at most plays) exist (a few "real premium" seats in central E to J, and some "package price" seats in C aside) for the rest of B back to L.

The row C package seats are interesting as the price difference between them and top non-premium price makes the extras you get decent value if you are going to want a drink and programme anyway.

Official premium seats run central E to J. There is plenty of decent top non-premium stuff beside them, in front on D, in particular, or behind in K.

Not much point taking L at top non-premium price or even M behind it at second, because prices hit third at N for the same view, cheaper.

Prices drop again at Q. Take this over P and save bananas for identical views. Note that in particular row Q is much cheaper than P and has to be a good deal, particularly as no sound desk is planned. For the shorter, circle row K at the same money is also a good deal and the elevation may help seeing over heads in front. While on the subject, even cheaper, L up there has a similar view.

Readers comments

“A11: “Jersey Boys” (October 2021): Seats felt very comfortable both height and width even for larger ladies like myself. Leg space (as you’ve already put) in front row is excellent, where you can comfortably stretch your legs and they’ll still not touch the wall.”

“E1: “Jersey Boys” (October 2021), (Broadway John). No seat in front so unlimited legroom. Really good view not really any obstruction for more than 1 second when someone is on the stairs.”

Stalls Boxes

Layout

The Royal Box is at the side of the theatre, recessed into the side wall and angled slightly towards the stage.

Legroom

Unlimited at movable chairs are used.

Choosing seats in general

The seat furthest from the stage has the best viewing angle, but be aware you will miss up to a fifth of the stage area nearest to you.

General hazard notes

Side seats with a restricted view.

Dress Circle

Layout

A single block of seats with aisles at the outer ends. Rows become shorter past row G.

Rows A and B curve inwards towards the edges of the theatre. Safety rails beside them do not affect the view.

Seats are on steps rising more steeply from row G back.

Thin safety rails behind row F seats 1 to 4 and 23 to 27 provide drying space for washing but will not interfere with views outside of laundry day.
 

Legroom

Surprisingly acceptable in almost all seats. Avoid row G as it is cramped for anyone over 5ft 5 tall.

Rows A to F have more legroom in seats 7 to 20 (A8 to 21) than the outermost six seats. Outer seats are acceptable to those up to around 5ft 7. Towards the centre, those up to 5ft 10 should be fairly comfortable.

Rows H to M have variable legroom. Row L has the most – those up to around 6ft should be reasonably happy. J is next, with K and M still acceptable to those around 5ft 8, feels the monkey.
 

Choosing seats in general

Views here are good. Central row A 8 to 21 is a winner, and the monkey would take other rows behind it in the central seats back to row F without hesitation - provided nobody leans forwards.

Outer seats in these rows still have a decent angle on the action, and are also acceptable.

It would miss row G entirely unless short.

The cheapest seats offer more than acceptable views. It would take L over M for comfort alone, but again would not hesitate to sit here for any production. Compared to the rear stalls, the shorter person will have a far better view up here than similarly priced row O downstairs.
 

General hazard notes

Those entering from the doors behind row M may find the stairs disconcertingly steep. If this is an issue for vertigo suffers, ask to use the door beside row F instead.

People leaning forward will block sightlines from all rows except A.

Washing hanging on the rails behind row F.

Legroom in row G.
 

Changes for the current production

People, Places and Things
Most of rows B to D are "premium" price - central B and C hit "super premium". You will get the view you pay for.

The good news is that row A is top non-premium price. 7 to 22 are the ones to go for. 

For the rest of top non-premium price, monkey would take the seats right next to the premium ones for the same view, cheaper, on A to D if wishing to be close to the stage. Central seats having more legroom, it really likes central E or F as the other option. On the other hand, front stalls are more immersive in general.

Always miss row H for legroom, and besides, J is cheaper and far more comfortable for the same view.

Third price gets you the comfort of row L, or you could take M for a little less legroom but also fewer bananas for the same view. The monkey would go for seats on stage at the same prices, though.

 

The 39 Steps
Central C and D are "premium" price. You will get the view you pay for, but there are many outstanding non-premium price seats around them.

The rest of rows A to F are a top non-premium price. The monkey would take A6 to 23 first (best of the legroom in that row), then central B, the four either side of the premium ones in C and D or central E. All offer a great view.

Row F 7 to 20 are also worth a glance but you are a row in front of cheaper seats. That said, skip row G for legroom, and H and J at second price are a mediocre choice. Unless short and wanting the stepped seating to see over heads, stalls row M is closer for the same bananas.

Take K at third price, particularly if shorter to see over heads. Do note that same price Q in the stalls is closer to the stage if heads in front don't matter.

Row L is acceptable, but take M first as it is the cheapest in the theatre and has the same view as the row in front. All rear rows from K back are still decent value perches for sure, though.

 

The Duchess
Central A to C are the true "premium" price. You will get the view you pay for.

The rest of A, B and central D and E are a top non-premium price at about "premium price" levels for other plays. The monkey would take A7, 21 and 22 first (best of the legroom in that row) or D 8 to 19 for a central view. Other seats at the price are fair, but maybe take the seat next to the more expensive one first - read on, next paragraph...

Interestingly, at second price (what is a normal "top non-premium" price elsewhere) you can have C and D 3 to 6 and 21 to 24, right beside the more expensive seats. If you don't want stalls row A, these are the ones to take, better value than stalls row M with fewer heads to look over. For a central view at the price, F 7 to 20 is also worth a glance.

Skip row G for legroom, and H at third price is not worth it as there are cheaper seats behind it with a similar view.

Row J is cheaper and far more comfortable at fourth price, or lowest fifth price gets you equally comfortable row L or row M with a little less legroom. Both still decent value perches for sure.

Readers comments

"K10: "A Mirror" (February 2024), (Taljaard). First visit to the reestablished single stage Trafalgar Theatre. Good seat which gave a clear view, but slightly distant from the stage."

"L5, 6 and 7: "Jersey Boys" (July 2021). The Trafalgar Theatre is looking lovely!  We were Dress Circle L5-7 which were great - fairly central, loads of legroom, comfortable height, well proportioned seats. Occasionally you couldn't see the back of the stage where the band was - guitarists appeared dismembered as you could only see them from the waist down. This was purely down to the set, I don't think it would be a problem for other shows. We had a few issues specific to our night - real problems with people in front leaning forward (for no apparent reason it would seem as nobody else was doing it) which left sight lines very badly obscured. We also had a row of people behind who thought they were at a sing-a-long show despite not being able to sing a note, so all in all it was one of the worst audience experiences ever!"

Dress Circle Boxes

Layout

Two either side of the dress circle, above row G at the side of the theatre.

The Lorne Box, plus its equivalent (disused, on the opposite side of the theatre) face the stage. Boxes A and B box are behind, with a side view.
 

Legroom

Unlimited, as movable chairs are used.

Choosing seats in general

The Lorne Box offers the best viewing angle. If taking the boxes behind, the seat furthest from the stage offers the best view if willing to lean.

General hazard notes

Side view from boxes A and B, leaning is required.

General price band information

Theatres use "dynamic pricing." Seat prices change according to demand for a particular performance. Prices below were compiled as booking originally opened. Current prices are advised at time of enquiry.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

Nearest underground station

Charing Cross - Bakerloo (brown) and Northern (black) lines. Also Main rail network terminus.

Leave the station by following signs from the platforms to the STRAND street exits. Walk straight ahead into the underground shopping arcade and keep going straight on into the light. If, underground, you pass Davenports Magic shop, turn around and walk the other way.

Take the left-hand staircase up to street level. In front of you is a very busy road, the Strand. Brook Street Employment Agency must be on your right as you face the road.

If you see a side street, with Brook Street Employment Agency on your left, turn around and walk towards the busy road instead - you took the wrong stairs.

Now facing the busy road: Walk to it and turn to your left. Walk towards Trafalgar Square - the big open area in front of you! You'll cross the front of Charing Cross station as you walk there, so mind out for the taxi entrances.

Go straight on, and follow the street as it curves. Use the first  pedestrian crossing that you come to to cross Northumberland Avenue. Once over it, turn slightly right (so you face into Trafalgar Square) and follow the path around the big building in front of you. 

Once around it, bear left at the next street you come to. Use the pedestrian crossing to cross to the theatre, which will be ahead of you to your left down the street called Whitehall.

Buses

3, 11, 12, 24, 53, 77, 77A, 88, 91, 139, 159 and 453  stop nearby.

Taxi

A rank for Black taxis is at Charing Cross Station - a short distance from the theatre. Best chance of hailing one is in the street outside or walk up to Trafalgar Square.

Car park

Spring Gardens. On leaving the car park walk into Trafalgar Square. The first major road you come to is Whitehall. Turn down it and the theatre is clearly visible in the same side of the road.
