The choice, variety, affordability of Plays & Shows is incredible for such a busy City. Somehow, somewhere you will find something that attracts and satisfies your taste and it's available at short notice & demand most of the time.

Walking past theatre in the West End and saw this show on - Let It Be. Small theatre and really enthusiastic crowd, these guys rocked for 2 and half hours. Great show put together with some montages of the Beatles tours and some comments from the Fab Four. At the start the usual warning - we would like to advise... More

What a great area. Like Broadway in NYC, but with a British spin. So many old historic buildings, pubs, and people watching. You just feel really cool being a part of the scene.

It's sort of fun to walk around the area and people watch. It's such a lively area full of life and you meet some interesting characters! No trip to London is complete without seeing a West End show!

A day out in London wouldn't be complete without a pre theatre meal and a West End show. We went to see Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre in Soho. This show was magnificent. I was privileged to see o e if the very first productions over 22 years ago. This was equally as good if not better. We... More
