One of the world class activities you can enjoy in London is taking in a theatre performance in the West End district. Here there is a wide variety of shows held each evening in the historic theatre houses scattered around and between Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus. This is just a great location to catch a show.
As for theatre-going, Only Broadway in NYC rivals the West End, which now sees almost 15 million theatre-goers on an annual basis. There is fairly regular show turn-over at many of the theatre houses, meaning there is always something new showing in the West End. Or you can catch one of the long standing like Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Mousetrap or Lion King if you prefer.
There are numerous websites where you can find out about ongoing and upcoming shows, many provide booking services as well. You can also purchase discounted tickets at the TKTS - Leicester Square for shows on the day.
Hint: There are lots of places around the West End to have dinner, a coffee or drink before or after performances. This helps make for a nice night out in London.
