Booking & Theatre Info For Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

The Palace Theatre is a large West End theatre that has a capacity of 1380 seats and four levels of seating. There are mixed views throughout the venue, which has one of the steepest balconies in the entire West End and may not be suitable for patrons suffering from vertigo. Many seats have restricted views due to support pillars and safety rails so studying the seating plan before purchase is recommended.

Seats in the front section of the Dress Circle or the centre of the Stalls are considered the premium seats in the theatre and are the optimum places to have the most immersive and unrestricted experience, with rows G-K in the Stalls being particularly good as the stage is fairly high and the rake in the seating allows for all of the action to be at eye level.

Due to the mixture of views throughout the Palace Theatre, there are many different price bands available that can bring value to your ticket purchase by studying the price cut-off point. Seats situated towards the rear of each section are often cheaper due to the overhangs from the circles, support pillars, and also their distance from the stage but can be good value for money. The Balcony section is good value and ideal for those on a budget and looking to secure lastminute deals or cheap Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets although there are some severe restrictions in this section. The front of the Balcony does offer good views though although due to how high up they are you can feel a little distant from the stage. Alternatively, sitting in the centre of the Grand Circle can also be excellent value and offers a clear view of the stage.
