London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre is one of the West End’s largest theatres, with a capacity of 2,304 across the Stalls and Circle seating sections. Decorated in a lavish Art Deco style, both the interior and exterior of the theatre currently reflected Wicked’s emerald green city of Oz.


A vast section that spans from Row A to Row ZF, the Apollo Victoria Theatre Stalls resemble those found in the Dominion Theatre. Split into several sections with many aisles, there are excellent views on offer across this section, for a range of budgets. Views towards the back of the Stalls are rarely obstructed by the Circle and can give good, clear overall views of the stage, although it might seem far away. Premium seats are located in the mid-front sections of the Stalls, with premium prices to match. Those who would like a great view for a cheaper price, great seats can be found in Row Q and back. Legroom across the Stalls is excellent.


Similarly to the Stalls, the Circle offers excellent views across the board. The only downside of the Circle is that the action can seem quite far away, but due to the spectacular that is Wicked, most action can be seen fine from this level. The Circle offers a large difference in prices of tickets, with the front centre seats being slightly more expensive than the rest. Bargain tickets can be found at the rear of the Circle, which offers great all-round views of the stage, if a little far away. Legroom in this section is also quite good.

  1. I am from the states and visited in November 1987. I wanted to see Starlight Express but it had been sold out for months. The first day arriving in London, I went straight to the box office and picked up some returned tickets for that same evening. I returned to my hotel “The Charles Dickens Hotel” near Lancaster Gate tube station, took a nap and returned that evening. Scored seat B37 on the aisle, 2 rows from the track on the upper level. Was amazed how they could do this! Loved the show and bought the album of the original cast! Beautiful Theatre. I hope to return again someday!

  2. This is a very nicely laid out theatre. We saw Wicked in November 2015, and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I suffer occasionally from anxiety attacks, and on this particular evening I had to have a 10 minute breather by the doors half way through the show. I explained to the enquiring staff, and they were very understanding – to the point of offering me a seat where they keep an eye on theatre, for the rest of the performance. I declined, but I felt that they really couldn’t have done more to make me feel relaxed and comfortable, and I was very touched that they tried their best to enable me to see as much of the show as I could, in comfort.
