The Adelphi Theatre is a beautiful West End venue, so wherever you decide to sit, you’ll be able to see an incredible show from a comfortable seat.

Wanting to be as close to the stage as possible? You’ll want to book tickets for the front rows of the stalls and dress circle. These seats will have you feeling as if you’re a part of the action.

If you’re wanting to buy cheaper tickets for a show at the Adelphi Theatre, why not book seats with a side view. You may miss moments that happen on the extreme sides of the stage, but you’ll be able to see a show for less, meaning more money to spend on lots of theatre tickets.

There’s plenty of great seats in the upper circle too, so if you want to be further away from what’s taking place on stage without missing a moment, the upper circle is the place for you.
