Sections available in Lyric Hammersmith

Lyric Hammersmith Stalls


  • 318 seats
  • Rows A-S

  • Seats in the stalls are arranged in one large block without a central aisle. Aisles run along either side of the block, which faces directly towards the stage with a minimal curve.
  • Support pillars are located at the ends of rows but do not obstruct the view for audience members. The Circle overhang begins about two-thirds of the way into the auditorium, but it does not significantly affect the view, even for those seated in the rear rows.
  • Rows are relatively narrow, with a maximum of 21 seats per row towards the back. Legroom is standard throughout, and a gradual rake allows audience members to see over the heads in front.
  • Wheelchair spaces are available in Row R.
Lyric Hammersmith Circle


  • 125 seats
  • Rows A-F

  • The Circle is the smallest section in the theatre, located above the Stalls. It has 6 rows fanning out around the stage, with Row A being the widest.
  • The Circle is a single block of seating without a central aisle, and access to each row involves steps down from the entrance. Although the balcony barrier runs in front of Row A, it doesn't severely restrict views unless patrons lean forward.
  • The section has a steep rake, ensuring clear views from the rear rows. Safety rails at the ends of each row do not obstruct views. Legroom is somewhat tight, especially in Row A.
  • Box A and Box B, positioned at the ends of the Circle, offer a stark side view of the stage.
Lyric Hammersmith Upper Circle

Upper Circle

  • 134 seats
  • Rows A-F

  • The Upper Circle is located above the Circle, with seating people across eight rows. This narrow section is a single block without a central aisle, and safety rails at the row ends may obstruct views.
  • A large safety rail at the front significantly restricts views from rows A-C. Rows, which reach a maximum of 21 seats, curve slightly around the stage.
  • Steps are needed to access each row. Although the distance from the stage isn't vast, patrons may feel isolated due to the obstructing safety rails.
  • Despite this, a steep rake ensures clear views even from the back row, though legroom is limited.
