St Martin’s Theatre was originally built by prolific architect W. G. R. Sprague as a pair with the neighbouring Ambassadors Theatre. First opening in 1916, the theatre has hosted The Mousetrap
since 1974 and has become synonymous with the production.
A relatively small theatre, St Martin’s has a seating capacity of 550 across three levels; the Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle. The intimacy of the theatre allows for a range of excellent views across all three levels, although the Upper Circle begins to feel quite steep and distant.
There are a variety of good views on offer throughout the theatre, with the best located in the mid-Stalls and Dress Circle, with bargain tickets located in the Upper Circle and at the rear of the Stalls. It is worth thoroughly checking out the seating plan before booking, to ensure you are getting the best deal!
Check out our price chart below, which details the type of view you will get for the ticket you buy!
|£67.50-£66.00 (Premium Seats)
|Premium seats are located in roughly seats 6-17 of rows E-G. These are the best in the theatre, offering close-up, central views of the stage without any restrictions. Extra legroom can be found in Row G.
|Rows B-K are this price, as the intimacy of the theatre ensures that the majority of the Stalls offers great views. A gradual rake ensures you can see past those in front to a detailed, clear view of the stage. Sit as centrally as possible for the best experience. Boxes A and B are also this price, as they offer comfortable, close-up views of the stage.
|Most of the Dress Circle falls under this price, as a decent rake ensures you can see past those in front to a clear, panoramic view of the entire stage that is still close enough to see detail. Boxes C and D are also this price, as they offer close-up, clear views of the entire stage, and can be worth purchasing for that extra bit of privacy.
|Rows L-M are this price, as the Dress Circle overhang begins to sit in view. It may not be distracting for some however, therefore these are good bargain seats! Be aware that the rake begins to level out here.
|Row F falls under this price, as it is affected by the Upper Circle overhang, which can obstruct part of the stage. Seats either end of rows A-B are also this price, as they are restricted view due to facing the stage side-on.
|Rows N-O are this price, as the Dress Circle overhang cuts off the top of the stage. It may also be difficult to see past those in front from here, but these can be good choice seats for those who have already seen the production.
|Row A falls under this price due to being under the day seat scheme (see below).
|The front section of the seating, in rows A-D, are this price, as they are the best seats in the Upper Circle. There is no restricted view, but it could be tricky to see close-up detail from here. Great bargain seats!
|Rows E-F are this price as they begin to feel very distant from the stage. It is preferable to sit as central as possible in Row E for a better view. It will be difficult to see detail from here.
|Rows G-H fall under this price, as they are the most distant seats in the theatre, which can make it difficult to see any detail. The ceiling of the theatre may also obstruct part of the stage. These seats should only be chosen if on a budget!
|Day Seats (£28.50-£27.50)
|These are located in Row A of the Stalls. These are great value seats that are only partially uncomfortable due to the height of the stage. Worth queuing up for, for the exceptional view!
