One of the many beauties of London is the wide range of entertainment venues that deliver a fantastic variety of shows, entertainment and culture that you’ll only find here and nowhere else in the world.
You can’t complete a trip to the capital without visiting London’s West End, it is filled with great plays and musicals that dazzle and delight in equal measure. It’s London’s entertainment and cultural hub and has been for hundreds of years, so make sure when you’re in London that you take advantage and see one of its amazing shows.
The National Theatre is a centrepiece for independent theatre across the UK with many shows and performances with unique angles and tales to stir the imagination. Why not book to see a show with actors and actresses at the top of their craft and be wowed by the arts?
The permanent home of Wicked and to many other great shows, the Apollo Victoria Theatre, which seats over 2000, is a staple of London’s cultural offerings. While the theatre housed many different events in its past, for the past 40 years it has been exclusively a theatre and one of London’s best.
Located in the heart of Covent Garden you’ll find the Theatre Royal, another historic venue and the perfect destination for entertainment, afternoon tea, dining, drinking, art & culture. Whether it’s casual or contemporary, it provides a wide range of theatrical shows for all ages.
Two theatres that are absolutely worth checking out are the Old Vic and Young Vic. The former is an independent powerhouse of theatre and wants to make the arts accessible to everyone through not just the shows themselves but also with creative learning programmes and community projects. While its sister theatre, the Young Vic, gives younger talent a platform to perform at lower prices without compromising on quality, so you can see the stars of the future today.
