Theatre Royal Haymarket
Built in 1720. Re-built in 1821 by Nash.
The auditorium has four levels - Stalls, Royal Circle, Upper Circle and Gallery.
The seating in the Stalls is very good, particularly as the overhang of the Dress Circle only really affects the view from Row V onwards. Of note, the narrowing of the auditorium towards the stage does affect the view of the outermost seats in Row H onwards.
The Royal Circle offers excellent view of the stage – the overhang of the Upper Circle doesn’t affect the view from any seat.
Seats in the Upper Circle curve towards the stage at the sides, and do not offer great legroom but views are pretty good for the price on offer.
The Gallery feels far from the stage, and the legroom available here is problematic.
