The Adelphi Theatre was built in 1930 and boasts a distinct Art Deco vibe. Unlike many theatres built in the 30’s, the auditorium has a less clinical layout and still has the characteristic ‘U’ shape that many other theatres built in the late 19th Century have.
The theatre holds around 1,500 seats spread across three levels; the Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle. Generally speaking, the best sections for viewing the show are the centres of the Stalls and Dress Circle, however these are also the most pricey. Bargain seats can be found in the Upper Circle, but these are not always recommended for those with a fear of heights. See our seating price guide below for further Adelphi theatre seating advice.
||Seats in the front row are priced at around £25. These tend to be sold as day seats and can be purchased on the day of the production from 10am. These seats are very close to the stage so audience members will feel very involved in the action, however audience members in these seats may find they are looking up at the stage throughout the show.
||Rows N and O in the very back section of the Upper Circle are the cheapest seats in the theatre at around £20 each. These seats have a fair view of the stage, however they can feel very far back at times.Seats at around £25 are situated in rows J-M of the Upper Circle. Again these seats have a fair view of the stage but can feel quite far away from the action.Seats in rows E-H are around £35. Aside from side seats, these seats have a good, clear view of the stage but can feel quite high up.The first and last two seats of rows B-F are considered to be restricted view seats as they have side angle views of the stage.
||Seats on rows W-X at the back of the Stalls are at the lower end of this price category as they are far back from the stage and affected by the Circle overhang.Seats in rows T-V are at the higher end of this price category. These seats are still affected by the circle overhang.The first and last two seats of row B-F are also within the top end of this price category.
