London’s West End is the place to see a show. Everyone knows that. But for some, the appeal of a show is not enough to counter the stress and hassle of the long-trek to London town – especially for those of us who live more than a stone’s throw away from the M25. Nevermind the expense, the worry of train times, trekking across London and the hassle of the commute home is enough to put people off. But why not look at it another way? Why not turn a night out at the theatre into a full-blown London break.
For the majority of people, tourist or not, the main theatre venues such as the London Palladium, the Theatre Royal or the Savoy Theatre are not just a great place to visit but a testament to the history of the arts – the hallowed halls where many actors and actresses alive or gone have passed. The grand nature of these historic theatres, often Regal and spectacularly quintessentially British in design, offer an unforgettable place to visit, even without taking in a modern show performed within their walls.
Turning a night out in the West End into a weekend break allows you to enjoy the drama of a fantastic show like Stomp, War Horse, The Lion King or We Will Rock You, take in the West End sights, while relaxing at a luxury London hotel and forgetting the worry of having to rush home. No need for a designated driver or a late night train ride, you can take in the theatre at your own pace. Yes it might not be cheap, but it is certainly worth it. We can help you keep the cost down by comparing the price of Theatre Tickets and booking the perfect date and time, then the rest is down to you.
With most of the best shows playing regularly and for a number of months, you could even make a long weekend of it and take in two or more shows. Theatre breaks are the ideal solution for the theatre buff and even better if you’ve never been to London or don’t get to the big city as often as you’d like.
