Booking & Theatre Information For Hamilton

The Victoria Palace Theatre is a large West End theatre that has a capacity of 1547 seats over three levels. The theatre is built in a traditional style with a large auditorium that somewhat overwhelms the relatively small stage. Each level of seating is well-raked and curves around the balconies, offering different degrees of views of the stage. Ticket prices vary accordingly so studying the seating plan prior to booking is recommended.

Premium seats in the theatre are situated in the centre of the Stalls and offer the best views of the stage and the front of the Dress Circle also provide a decent vantage point to watch the action from an elevated position.

For patrons searching for bargains and lastminute theatre tickets, the steep rake of the stage results in some seats which are marked as ‘restricted view’ in the Stalls offering great value for money as the restrictions can be minimal and sitting in these seats should not have any negative impact on your enjoyment of the production as a whole.
