Queen Elizabeth Hall seating plan, West End, London

Value for money seats

  • Rear Stalls (AA-RR): Seats in the rear section and toward the ends of each row are priced lower than the seats in the Center in the Rear Stalls. This section is tiered all the way through so you aren't experiencing any sightline obstructions no matter where you sit, but there is quite a bit of distance from the stage in the rear rows. Nonetheless, these seats are more budget-friendly.
  • Front Stalls (F-L): The Stalls seats closer to the stage go for premium rates but for a good mix of views and affordability, you can opt for seats in the middle to rear rows, particularly ones toward the ends of each row. The slightly angled seating means your sightline is a bit restricted, but this venue is tiered all the way through, so you won't struggle to see the performances.

Best views of the stage

  • Front Stalls (C-G): Any seats in the Center section will give you clear, unobstructed views of the stage for most performances, but seats closer to the front offer a much more immersive experience at more premium rates. Opt for seats in Row C and slightly back to avoid the minor sightline obstruction of the stage's front edge.
  • Rear Stalls (AA-FF): The raked section means you can see the stage no matter where you sit, but the section also curves at the ends and the rear rows tend to be quite far back. Go for seats in the Center of the Rear Stalls, closer to the front, for a clearer view of the stage.

Frequently asked questions about Queen Elizabeth Hall seating plan

Where are the best seats in Queen Elizabeth Hall?

The Center seats in the Front Stalls offer some of the best views of the stage at premium rates. These seats experience no sightline restrictions or obstructions thanks to a gentle rake that lets you see above the rows in front of you. Seats right in the front might be a little too close for comfort, though, so opt for seats in Rows C-G.

Which section of Queen Elizabeth Hall has wheelchair accessibility?

Row A in the Front Stalls and Row AA in the Rear Stalls have wheelchair-accessible and companion seats. There is step-free access from the main entrance and a JCB lift to take you up to your seats.

Which seats in Queen Elizabeth Hall provide value for money?

While this theater has decent views all across thanks to its tiered seating setup, front-row seats tend to be priced higher. If you're looking for seats that give you a good view at more affordable rates, try the front to middle rows in the Center of the Rear Stalls. If you don't mind a slightly angled seating position, seats on the sides of either section are a good choice. The seats at the back of the Rear Stalls are also more affordably priced and are a great choice if you don't mind the distance from the stage.
