Imelda Staunton was fantastic!

My husband and I went to see "Gypsy". It was unbelievable amazing! Imelda Staunton was brilliant playing Mama Rose! It was one of the highlights of our trip!

The heart of London night-life. Theatre offer is constantly rich and diverse, with a split between high quality plays and musicals.

The magic and illusion show called Impossible will have you on the edge of your seat. It ranges from close up magic to escapology illusion on a grand scale and much more. awesome and breathtaking!!!!. It truly is a must see show and the production is worthy of Las Vegas. Hurry it's only there for a short run.

I went here to watch a show and I book the ticket advance so my seat was comfortable and the view was nice. The show was fantastic and people were standing and clapping their hands, shouting 'Bravo'.You won't believe how many people were there, it's a full house. People were rushing for the last minute tickets. West End is so... More

Being a native New Yorker, I love the West End in London. The culture that is available is amazing and the prices are so affordable. There are so many shows to choose from, it is hard to pick. Don't miss it!

While on our trip of a lifetime to the UK, my husband and I went to Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End to see The Phantom of the Opera....and we are so glad we did ! What a marvellous show, in a gorgeous theatre.......I was overwhelmed to be there. After the show we walked outside into the West End... More

When in London, one must go to a show at the West End, of course. I saw the show "Stomp" at a matinee. I didn't think I would enjoy it but I surely did. What remarkable talent those actors had; what choreography. Just fantastic.

The Lovetheatre Ticket Service offer of dinner and the show is a sham. The offer appeared to good to be true and it was. Instead of buying the 79. tickets, for 78. I could get the dinner included. I checked the restaurant and it received very good reviews. The seat for this deal was in the middle of the orchestra... More

This was one of the most remarkable plays I have ever seen. I had read the book, which I loved, and wondered how they could ever translate it onto the stage. They did so brilliantly. The set is probably the most high-tech and amazingly effective I have ever seen. This play won 5 Emmys in New York, including Best Play... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
