London Theatre Tickets And Breaks

Posted on February 8th, 2012 in Alternative Things To Do, Money Saving Tips by Stephanie

Wicked Musical London

London is home to all the world’s best theatre productions including long running musicals such as The Phantom Of The Opera to contemporary productions. It is also home to master musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber who not only created The Phantom Of The Opera but West End hits such as Cats, Evita and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat to name a few.

Seeing a theatre production in the West End is a definite must do if you’re visiting or even if you’re a Londoner, catching a show is a great way to spend an evening. I highly recommend seeing “We Will Rock You” which is a musical made up entirely of Queen songs. It is definitely the best musical I’ve seen so far and even if you’re not a Queen fan I guarantee you’ll love it!

Theatre tickets can be bought directly from the box offices in the theatres or over the internet. Tickets tend to be cheaper if you can make it to a matinee performance or go on a weekday evening (except for Friday). There is a good discount ticket booth in the Clocktower Building in the middle of Leicester Square called “TKTS” where you can get half-price tickets on the day of performance for musicals, plays, opera and dance. There are also a lot of theatre breaks London websites that offer weekend breaks in London inclusive of theatre tickets to your chosen show. A good website for theatre breaks in London is TheatreBreaks.co.uk. The website allows you to easily book your hotel, train or flight and your theatre tickets all for a discounted price. They also offer city breaks in London with attractions included in the package as well as pre-theatre meal deals. With Valentines coming up it may be an idea to take your loved one away for a romantic getaway or staycation in London! :)

I’ve never been to London and its my dream to visit it and experience for myself its richness in culture and attractions. I did some brief theater stints before and it would be inspiring to watch some good presentations like the Phantom of the Opera.

London is a great city with a lot of history and culture. I had the pleasure of living there for work years ago and had a great time. Its a city that always have lots of opportunities for entertainment.

I think the best thing is to go the theatre box office on the day of a performance late morning / early afternoon and ask them if they have any returns of tickets - tickets that have been resold back to the theatre cos theatre-goers couldn’t make it that night. And these tickets can be purchsed on the day at a much cheaper price.
