London’s West End means one thing: the theater! Only New York City’s Broadway comes close to competing with the West End as the world’s premier theater hub.

The razzle dazzle of musicals, drama by renowned playwrights, stand-up comedy, theatrical rock shows, family-friendly shows – there’s always something happening in the West End.

Time it right and you might get to see your favorite TV or movie star strutting the stage. Actors like David Schwimmer, Kim Cattral, Kevin Spacey and Whoopi Goldberg have all appeared in the West End.

The legendary shows staged in the West End include the world’s longest-running play, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, along with must-sees like Cats, Starlight Express and We Will Rock You.
Famous theatres in London’s theater land include the Lyceum, Garrick, Gielgud, Her Majesty’s, London Palladium, Adelphi, Cambridge and Prince of Wales.

So, see what’s showing when you’re in London Town and then book ahead! Way ahead if you’re planning on seeing a real showstopper.

A London Theater Passport provides discounted entry to a West End show – just choose from the list of shows available on the day.
Or you can pre-book a reserved ticket to your show of choice – maybe Les Mis or Dirty Dancing, Billy Elliot or Mamma Mia!, Wicked or Phantom. Lion King or Mary Poppins.

There’s usually a choice of matinee or evening shows, and standard or top-price seating. Make a real evening of it by including pre-theater dining as part of the package.
