"Plays and Theatre in the West End" St. Martin's Theatre Tip by Jenniflower
St. Martin's Theatre, London: 9 reviews and 12 photos
We are huge theatre goers, and have seen Mousetrap (Agatha Christie) - the longest running theatre production in London, Phantom of the Opera (three times!!!), Les Miserables, Lion King (twice!!), Stomp, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mamma Mia since living in London.
Tickets can cost alot though, especially when you add onto that the pre-theatre dinner you will have too.
A good plan (although risky) is to go to the theatre on the day/day before the actual production and they then give away tickets at brilliant prices through cancellations. But of course, you have no choice over where to sit, and if you are in a group, you may not get to sit together, which is not ideal.
Lastminute.com has a good online theatre booking system, one which we have used a few times.
Another thought is to go to theatres like the Orange Theatre in Richmond (zone 4), or Wimbledon Theatre (zone 3), which, although they are not seen in the class of a 'professional' West End play, are often just as good! We saw 84 Charing Cross Road and thoroughly enjoyed it, amongst others.
The Polka Theatre is a children's Theatre in Wimbledon that is really fantastic for kiddies, aimed towards them, and equally, professional.
