Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre - Good/Bad Seating

Can anyone recommend good seats at this theatre please. I think I was in the upper circle the last time I went a few years ago and felt really squashed in my seat. Has anyone sat in the side stalls - just wondered if there was a restricted view of the stage as it is the stage is quite big.

I have sat on all levels of the Hippodrome on many occasions, The seats are the same. There are some with a bit more leg room due tot he layout of the building or allowing for wheelchair access but the actual seats are identical. The boxes on side of the stage have different seats I think - but they are probably very expensive. All seats with restricted view are marked on the seat plan on The Hippodrome website. They tend to be a bit cheaper as a result.

The seats at the back on ground level are 100% restricting ,specially if you have young kids.

The seats on upper tier ovr balcony again is quite restricting,as you have to keep leaning forward to look down

Personally I always go for central and half way into the stalls at the hippodrome! Unfortunately, these tend to be the most expensive seats!

All seats with restricted views are labelled as so if you book through the hippodrome website.
