Fantastic show!

I could not rate this show highly enough, it is one, if not the best show on the west end! Definately worth watching, such an amazing story with many ups and downs. Must see!

An absolutely unmissable show and a truly wonderful experience. I had high expectations of the performance but what I saw was beyond anything I could have hoped for. Exceptional dance, songs and acting, the best show in the West End.

After having read the book, seen the movie, we were curious about the musical. One word wonderful. The cast is very good specially Billy himself played by Nat Sweeney. He really steals the show. Elton John's music is impressive. One of the best musicals we have seen in the last 10 years!!!

This is the second time I have seen Billy Elliot. I had seats in the stalls near the front on this occasion (last time I was on one of the upper tiers) and the view was much better. The story line, acting, dancing, humour & music are all fantastic. This is a great feel good show, with serious undertones regarding... More

Loved it! The play was fantastic and the cast was brilliant! An absolute must see when you're in London. The wait for the women's bathroom on the main level was crazy but a staff member told us about a washroom on the bottom bar level which had more stalls so that sped things up a lot. FYI: The Victoria Station... More

Wow, what a show, the dancers/actors were amazing and you cannot fault them one bit! Great props and costumes too - really magnificent show! The only slight disappointment was that the show doesn't have the same music as the movie which i love so much however the music in the show was still great. The theatre itself needs works, its...

Loved the film, Loved the musical! I'll admit this isn't the cheapest production in the west end but it's worth it. I bit the bullet and I'm so glad I did, never has a standing ovation been more deserved! You'll laugh and cry. I hope to catch it again before it finishes later this year.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
