Theatre Breaks

From musicals to dramas, there's something for all ages and tastes in London's bustling West End theatre district, which is concentrated around Leicester Square, Strand and Shaftesbury Avenue.

And a trip to the theatre doesn't have to be just around the show itself – you can spend some time taking in the sights, sounds and sophistication of the London scene and make a night of it with dinner and an overnight stay.

We have theatre break packages from £125 per person including hotel, theatre and return rail travel. Our travel teams love heading down to the big smoke to take in a show themselves. Here are some of their top tips:

My favourite London show so far has to be Mamma Mia! I recommend it to anyone who fancies a light hearted musical - it would make a particularly good gift for spoiling a deserving mum.

Convent Garden and Russell Square are my favourite spots for an overnight stay, as not only are they convenient for getting to the theatre but they're also perfectly situated for some of London's best bars and restaurants too."

For a real treat I look to book 2 nights at Rubens at the Palace. This year I'll be watching Lion King at the Theatre and dining at Chiquitos in Leicester Square, then doing some shopping around Oxford Street followed by a trip to Warner Brothers Studios to take in Harry Potter!

I've been to a fair few shows, but my favourite has got to be Phantom of the Opera. It's one of those iconic shows that everyone should see. I've been wanting to see it since I was a child and my husband took me to see it for my birthday a couple of years back. It was brilliant, the performance was superb and the atmosphere was electric. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it, and it doesn't matter if you aren't into opera!
