“Let me entertain you!” former Take That member Robbie Williams once sang! For entertainment is what you’ll get if you spend an evening in the West End of London. See a musical, and you’ll soon be in its mesmeric grip. You’ll be taken away from the daily humdrum for a few hours and royally entertained. It’s an experience which, if you combine with the range of London Theatre breaks on offer, will live long in your memory.
Into the West End
Head to the West end of London, and you’ll soon discover you’ve entered theatreland. On every street, down every side avenue, you’ll find a theatre. Its lights and signs are vying for your attention. You’re in the entertainment district of London, so enjoy, and make the most of it!
As you’re visiting the capital, it makes sense to combine your show with an overnight stay. Just think, you’ll have seen a show, why make the long journey home? Stay, take in some night scenes of London, knowing a centrally located hotel bed is close by to return too. You want to make the most of your London visit, right?
So, which are the best shows in London? A tough question to answer. You have around 40 shows to pick from in the West End alone, so it’s no easy choice. You can go for favourites such as Wicked, Lion King and Aladdin, which are always guaranteed winners. Or the critics favourites such as Book of Mormon or Bat Out of Hell? Perhaps, though you want a more traditional show, something that’s popular, familiar? Then classics like Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera fit that mould. The choice is wide-ranging, so one will surely suit?
Hotel, Show, dinner time!
Seeing a show is one thing, but making a weekend or an overnight stay makes the experience feel so much more worthwhile. Take a Phantom of the Opera theatre break for instance. You’ll see the famous show, you’ll stay in a comfortable hotel close to the theatre, and you can even book yourself a pre-show dinner. It’s the perfect combination. It’ll allow you also to visit some of London’s key sights. The city is a lot smaller than you think, with many of its major attractions in or around the West End.
Let Me Entertain You
Going to the theatre remains one of the great London experiences, adored by the millions that head to the capital each year to catch a show. Why not join them and create your magical memory.
