Arguably the most famous theatre and variety house in the West End, the London Palladium first opened in 1910, built by Walter Gibbons and redesigned by prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham. One of the largest theatres in London, the Palladium has undergone several refurbishments and updates to ensure the best sight-lines and most lavish interior.
With a vast seating capacity of 2,286, the London Palladium is built across three levels; the Stalls, Royal Circle and Upper Circle. There are a mixture of views on offer throughout the theatre, with the best tending to be in the Royal Circle. A bonus of the venue is that there are clear sight-lines throughout, with almost no obstructions. Bargain seats can be found in the Upper Circle if you don’t mind being a little distant from the action!
Check our price chart below, which gives a detailed look at the types of view you will get for the ticket you buy.
Please note that prices vary depending on the production playing at the London Palladium, and if the performance is at peak time. The details on this page refer to the 2020 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Below is a rough guide that may differ depending on these factors.
|£150.00 - £99.50 (Premium Seats)
||Premium seats are in the centre of rows C-P, roughly seats 9-35. These seats are central and head-on to the stage, with no restrictions and a decent rake that allows you to see past those in front. Due to the height of the stage, these seats are far enough back to see everything as well as close-up detail.
||These seats are located in rows A-F, seats 9-34. They are central to the stage, head-on without any obstructions. If watching a large-scale musical production, it can be preferable to sit here to get a great, panoramic view of the whole stage.
||The majority of the Stalls are top price, due to the excellent views on offer. A decent rake ensures you have a clear, unobstructed view past those in front. Sit as centrally as possible around midway through the seating to get the best overall view of the stage.
||The majority of the Royal Circle falls under this price bracket, as a steep rake allows for a clear, unobstructed view of the stage, allowing you to see details. It can be beneficial to sit further along the row for extra legroom. There is a slight curve that does not affect the view.
||Seats in rows T-V fall under this pricing category, as they begin to feel a little distant from the stage and are partially affected by the Royal Circle overhang. Sit in the centre of Row T for the best view in this price range. Side view seats in rows E-K are also available for those still looking to be closer to the stage, but sat at an angle and potentially missing action on the sides of the stage.
||Row L is in this price, as it is distant from the stage, and those in front may slightly block the view. Sit as centrally as possible for the best overall view.
||Rows W is this price band, as is affected by the Royal Circle overhang that cuts off part of the stage. The stage feels distant from here and it can be tricky to see past those in front. However, these are good cheaper seats for those who don’t mind missing a little detail.
||The majority of the central seats in the Grand Circle are available in this price band. These seats offer a good overall view of the stage, but might feel distant from the action. Aim for rows E-K to avoid restricted views by the safety rail at the front of the Grand Circle.
||Row X of the stalls is available at this price. This row is affected by the Royal Circle overhang and will feel distant from the action.
||There are many seats in the Grand Circle at this price, these seats will feel distant from the stage and will miss small details. Avoid seats in rows C-D as the safety rail obstructs the view to the stage.
||Row XX (the back row of the stalls) is available at this price. This will feel most distant from the stage and risks heads in the way of the stage.
||The majority of seats in this price band suffer from a restricted view due to technical equipment and the safety rails. These are good seats for those on a tight budget.
||Seats at this price are located in rows A-B, and the ends of the rows C-J, where the stage is obstructed by safety rails and technical equipment. It may be very difficult to see the stage from these seats.
