London Palladium Seating Guide
The London Palladium, which recently celebrated its centenary year after opening on 26th December 1910, is one of London’s most prolific and famous performance venues. The theatre boasts beautiful period architecture making each performance feel like a special event. The front of house recently underwent refurbishment to improve facilities to the bathrooms and bars, and is fully accessible for disabled visitors.
The auditorium is divided into three large sections, built with a slight curve around the stage. Sightlines for the theatre are on the whole excellent, as the wide plan view of each level is unobstructed by overhang or pillars.
Big Budget TipThe front of the dress circle provides the best overall view of the stage, and places you in the centre of the action throughout some of the surprise ‘appearances’ The Wizard of Oz has to offer…
Best Value TipThe front two rows of the Upper Circle do provide excellent views of the stage, if you can negotiate your way around the safety bar! Although the theatre labels them ‘restricted view’, they do provide excellent value for money.
Shows at the London Palladium
Michael Flatley makes his final West End performance in this spectacular reinvigorated version of his global smash hit Lord of the Dance. The show will also feature Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle at some performances. Based on Irish folklore the show tells a story of good vs evil as the Lord of the Dance protects his people from the dark Lord Don Dorcha.
Cats makes a triumphant return to the West End. Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical based on T.S. Eliot’s poems is updated for a modern audience by the original creative team. The show tells the story of a group of cats called the Jellicles, who gather together for one night a year to celebrate and choose which one of them will be chosen to ascend to the Heaviside Layer. Ex Pussy Cat Doll and X-Factor Judge Nicole Scherzinger takes on the role of Grizabella the Glamour cat.
