Theatre Seat Opinions:
Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

The venue is closed for refurbishment, including all seating. New information will appear here when changes are completed.

"Hamilton" fans: A provisional seating plan is available here.

The monkey will post details as soon as anything is available.

For reference, in the old layout the stalls has the most legroom, with the edges having least view. The dress circle had tight legroom  in row A and from F back, with most legroom at the outermost aisles where rows swept back slightly from row B on. The upper circle was cramped in all seats except the very back row. Side slips up there had least legroom, and a rail affected views considerably from the front two rows. ALL THIS COULD WELL CHANGE WITH THE NEW THEATRE LAYOUT, HOWEVER.

For those hunting online for information, and thinking they have found it from amateurs who have fond memories of the "Billy Elliot" days... PLEASE TAKE THE MONKEY'S STRONGEST ADVICE that there really is no point trying to rely on that old information, as the venue will change almost totally. Even the position of the stage relative to the stalls and circles seating will alter, which will affect sightlines from all parts of the theatre.

To avoid misleading anyone, Theatremonkey chose to remove 15 years (well, more than 30, personally) of carefully reserached information. It feels it would very unprofessional and unnecessary to cause upset by letting its valued readers rely on something that could well not be true - and get a horrible shock on the night. Until the monkey know more in November, it really is better not to guess. From long experience, it know that when a theatre is re-built (Theatremonkey has been going 16 years, and in that time 5 have been so) the results are nothing like the originals.

For those who want a little interpretation of the new seating plan they have published, then looking at the "Hamilton Layout," it seems to the monkey like the upper circle has the same layout of seating blocks - were bars at the front, now they seem to only have a discount for sightline problems in the centre aisle seats for 4 rows. So, elsewhere, just watch for legroom - those slips were very tight last time.

Width in stalls and dress is almost the same as in the original, maybe a bit narrower in the front stalls than the monkey expected. Rear stalls area is wider and shallower than before, with a warning that the back row loses sightlines to circle overhang. The Dress circle is about the same apart from losing the centre aisle in the front 4 rows, plus the side slips and rear alcoves.


On pricing, it looks like the monkey would expect. In the upper circle, the back 5 rows are cheapest in the place, along with the single centre aisle seats in front. Only central rows B and C are the same top-premium price as the stalls and dress circle. The monkey would try (for comfort alone) for stalls and dress circle first. Beside and behind them for 2 rows, at second price, isn't bad, but you may as well go a row back, feels the monkey.

In the dress circle, most central seats from B to E are "premium" priced. Beside them are top non-premium, and at the ends of the rows are some restricted view second price seats. All fair, the monkey would be careful on the slips, perhaps, though for legroom.

The stalls is mostly top non-premium price for 4 rows, then premium back to around row O. At the ends of O to S, prices drop to second due to slight circle overhang potential issues - and the same goes for row T. Looking fairly priced, feels the monkey.

Getting to this Theatre
Find this theatre on a Street Map
Nearest Underground Station Buses Car Park
Nearest Underground Station:
Victoria - Victoria Line (pale blue), District Line (green) and Circle Line (yellow).

From the Victoria line ticket barriers, turn to your left. Follow the curve of the barriers around until you see an exit sign for "Wilton Road". Go under this sign and up the stairs. The theatre is in front of you, across a busy road.

From the District and Circle line ticket barriers, you have two choices. 

Either you can turn left on leaving the underground ticket barriers, go up the stairs and exit the station. Follow the street to your right, and the Victoria Palace Theatre appears ahead of you, across the road to your left.

Alternatively, on leaving the underground ticket barriers, turn to your right, and look along diagonally for a tunnel sign marked "National Rail". Walk under it and down a gentle slope. This will bring you into the Victoria line hall. Follow the curve of the ticket barriers around until you see an exit sign for "Wilton Road". Go under this sign and up the stairs. The theatre is in front of you, across a busy road.

 

Buses:
8, 11, 24, 36, 38, 73, 211, 511 To Victoria Bus Station. The theatre is in front of the station, across a busy road.

 

Taxi:
A rank for Black taxis is at Victoria Station - a short distance from the theatre. Best chance of hailing one is in the street outside.

 

Car Park:
Car parks are in Rochester Row and Cumberland Street.

At Cumberland Street http://www.q-park.co.uk for details. At this car park, parking under the "Theatreland Parking Scheme" allows a 50% discount in cost. Spaces CANNOT be reserved at these prices, so choose whether you would prefer to book and pay more, or use this scheme.

If you choose the "Theatreland Parking Scheme", you must get your car park ticket validated at the theatre's box office counter (the theatre attendant will insert the car parking ticket into a small machine which updates the information held on the magnetic strip on the reverse, thus enabling the discount). When you pay using the machines at the car park, 50% will be deducted from the full tariff. You may park for up to 24 hours using this scheme and it is endorsed by the Society of London Theatre.

Other option is Semley Place. On leaving the car park turn to your left. Walk to the end of the street, to a busy main road, Buckingham Palace Road. If you see Ebury Street, wrong way.

Turn Left and walk down Buckingham Palace Road, passing Victoria Coach Station, a white building on your left as you walk. Cross Elizabeth Street and Eccleston Street. Change to the other side of the road.

Keep walking with Victoria Station on your right. When you reach the station forecourt, turn right and walk across it. The Victoria Palace Theatre is then to your left, across Grosvenor Gardens, a busy main road.
