Wasn't sure where to put this.

Clue : Gallery above a dress circle (7)

I have Googled all sorts but I'm flummoxed and it's really annoying me ๐Ÿ˜€ Can anyone put me out of my misery please

are you sure the letters you already have are correct??

I would have thought balcony, apart from the obvious, that your word starts with L.

What is the clue for the word that gives you the first L?

Initial letter clue was 'travellers cases'
I had luggage. Thanks to MissAdventure I now realise it should be baggage
So of course the answer is balcony. I had what is known in our family as a 'brain fart' grin
Thank you.

I didn't see at first how Misadventure had got to balcony. I thought maybe the "dress circle" somehow went to "balcony bra" to give the link. Overthinking it!

I was thinking of complicated, cryptic answers too.

There is a great site if every you need to cheat ask for assistance with crosswords. It's called one across.

I have crosswordsolver pinned to start on my phone.
I've not heard of one across, I'll check that one out.
