Seating Plan

Harold Pinter Theatre seating plan
Formerly known as the Comedy Theatre, the Harold Pinter Theatre first opened on site in 1881, designed by Thomas Verity. In the mid-1950’s the theatre underwent major refurbishment, however much of the original design remains. Decorated in a Renaissance design, the venue sits in a horseshoe shape with many traditional support pillars still dotted around. With a seating capacity of 796, the theatre is one of the West End’s smaller playhouses and is best known for hosting short-run plays. Built across four levels, including the Stalls, Dress Circle, Royal Circle and Balcony, a variety of views are on offer throughout the theatre, and it is worth thoroughly checking your seats before booking. The Stalls offer the best views in the theatre, however the Dress Circle is also a good option for those willing to pay top price. Bargains can be found here and there, however a number of restrictions from pillars make choosing seats in the Royal Circle and Balcony difficult. Check out our seating price chart below, which gives a more detailed look at the type of view you will get for the price you pay.
Ticket Price Stalls Dress Circle Royal Circle Balcony
£90.00 (Premium Seats) Premium seats can be found in roughly seats 5-14 of rows F-K in the Stalls. These seats are central, facing the stage head-on. A decent rake ensures you have a completely clear view past those in front, and legroom is ample here too.   Seats at this price are centrally located in rows A-C, in roughly seats 6-12 and 8-13. You can see the entire stage clearly from here, with no restrictions. Be aware that the safety rail may be in view in Row A, but this does not affect the view.   Not available. Not available.
£65.00 The majority of the Stalls are top price, as there are good sightlines throughout. It is best to sit as centrally as possible, although the narrow nature of the auditorium ensures seats at the ends of rows will not be restricted.   Most of the seats in this section are top price, as they offer great views of the stage with little to no restrictions. A decent rake allows you to see past those in front. Sit here for musicals for the best overall view of the stage.   Not available. Not available.
£49.50 Seats at this price in the Stalls are located at the rear of the theatre and are partially affected by the Dress Circle overhang. They are also directly behind thin pillars, which can severely restrict the view. It is worth thoroughly checking before booking.   These seats are toward the ends of the centre block and are affected by the positioning of thin support pillars, which block parts of the stage. Boxes C and D are this price as they face the stage side on and you may be required to lean forward. Most of the Royal Circle falls under this price. Due to the intimacy of the theatre, you can still see detail from here. Sit as centrally as possible to avoid restricted view seats toward the ends of rows. Not available.
£29.50 Most of Row U falls under this price, as it is distant from the stage and affected by the Dress Circle overhang. Be aware that thin pillars will obstruct the view, cutting off large parts of the stage.   Box A and Box B fall under this price as they face the stage side on. You will need to lean forward to see, although these can be complete bargains as they still offer a close-up view of the stage. Seats at this price in the Royal Circle suffer from pillar obstruction and restrictions from technical equipment that may obscure the stage. Legroom is limited in these seats and the safety rail is also problematic. Only choose if on a budget!   Nearly all of the seats in the Balcony are this price, as the safety rail severely restricts the view of the stage. This may not be a problem for some, but if audience members lean forward, they could obstruct the view for those further back.
£15.00 Seats 1-2 and 20-21 of Row C fall under this price, as the seats face the stage side on and parts of action will be obstructed. Row A also falls under this price due to a high stage. Seats at the very rear and sides of the Dress Circle are this price, as legroom is limited and there is a restricted view, due to the curve of the seating, which cuts off parts of the stage. These seats are rows E-F of the Royal Circle, as views are obscured by pillars and the curve of the seating. Please note that legroom is limited in these seats. There are also Standing spaces at the rear of the theatre, which should only be selected if on a budget, as it can be very difficult to see from here.     Row F and seats at the ends of every row are this price, as they are completely restricted by safety rails, the curve of the seating and limited legroom. It is difficult to see detail from these seats. There are Standing seats at the rear of the Balcony which should only be selected if nothing else is left in the theatre!
