Her Majesty's Theatre Stalls
The stalls have an intimate seating arrangement with each row having a maximum of 35 seats. There is an aisle that runs mid-way through the auditorium, and the best seats are on either side of this aisle as these are the centre seats. The seats on the rear side of the Stalls section may offer an obstructed view because of the overhang from the Royal Circle.
Her Majesty's Theatre Royal Circle
The Royal Circle level of the theatre offers great view of the stage and is divided into three sections. The centre seats of the first six rows are among the best in the house. Since there is a curve in the seating, the seats on either end of the rows in this section have an obstructed view of the stage, and therefore tickets for these seats come at a lower price too. There are support pillars located in Row E and these hinder the view from rows in the rear side of Royal Circle.
Her Majesty's Theatre Grand Circle
The seating in the Grand Circle is divided into three blocks, with the largest being the central section. All seats of the central block are priced the same. Although the legroom is restricted, the seats on the left and right sides of the Grand Circle are fairly decent as they are angled towards the stage and offer great views of the stage at a lower cost. The Balcony overhang does not affect the views from this section, and there are no pillars to restrict the view either.
Her Majesty's Theatre Balcony
For those on a budget, the balcony is a good option. But the section is steeply raked and it is known to get warm during a show. The legroom in this area is quite restricted. Those seated in this section will also realise that the sound quality is not as good as it is in other sections. The view of the stage may not be so great either.
Which Seats Offer The Best View?
The Stalls obviously offer the best views in the house. The best seats are in rows B-F of this section. The Royal Circle has some good views as well, with seats 13-24 in rows A-C giving you the best views from this section.
The middle seats (12-23) in rows A-C in the Grand Circle also give you decent views of the stage.
Which Seats Offer the Best Value for Money?
The middle seats in rows E-H in the Stalls section offer good views without burning a hole in your pocket. The same applies to seats 6-31 in rows A-C of the Royal Circle. The seats on left and right sides of the Grand Circle are priced lower but still offer a good view of the stage, without any obstructions as the seats are angled towards the stage. The seats in the Balcony section are good for those on a budget- but it may not give you the best experience of the show.
