Delfont Mackintosh Theatres own and run the Prince Edward Theatre, the Queen’s Theatre, the Prince of Wales Theatre, refurbished in 2004 to recreate the glamour of the 1930s, and the Novello Theatre which was renovated to celebrate its centenary in 2005.

Great theatre

Even up in the gods the seats are comfy and the view isn't bad although be warned you may need to lean forward on the very front row of the grand circle

We went to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. It is amazing - the stage set is awesome and how it is done is so clever.

Highly recommend! more

My seat was right in the front row, which meant I had to crane my neck a little bit (the stage is high). For this show there is some action low on the floor (like at the beginning of the play when they show... more

We saw the National Theatre's production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime here at The Gielgud Theatre. We had great seats in the Dress Circle area as we can see the stage clearly and the actors' expression from our seats. For the price, it was a good deal.

The Gielgud is at the heart of the West End, and can be easily reached via the Piccadilly Circus station or Leicester... more
