The Ultimate London Theatre Package

TOUR DESCRIPTION

In London we are proud of being the centre of world theatre (sorry Broadway!) and now after a year of development, we are happy to offer up our Ultimate London Theatre Package.

Come with us on a winding walk through the theatre district discussing the history of theatre from the Greeks and Romans through Shakespeare to Les Mis and beyond. Find out why actors bask in the ‘limelight’, and why they encourage each other to ‘break a leg’. We then escort you to the oldest Playhouse in London for an hilarious backstage tour of the theatre led by actors in period attire, before meandering through Theatreland to Soho, the throbbing heart of the West End where you will have a private table booked for your party for a 2 course dinner at a fantastic French restaurant. Here the guide leaves you to enjoy your dinner with directions to the West End show you have chosen from our 9 available options (which are listed in the column to the right).

 

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Covent Garden - The jewel in the crown of the West End. A former church garden that became one of the country’s most important markets in Europe before being redesigned as the entertainment epicenter that it is today. We’ll learn of its bigger characters and how its position between the lowliest slums and grandest mansions turned it into one of the largest social melting pots in Europe.
  • The Royal Opera House - We’ll talk about how this truly grand building influenced not only the fine art of Clowning, but also where several of our more famous Theatrical terms found their origin.
  • Backstage Theatre Tour - Go behind the stage door at London’s oldest operating theatre. You will join some of the incredibly talented actors that work here day in, day out on a backstage tour. Not only will you be hearing about some of history’s more colorful actors, you may even get the chance to meet them!  
  • Leicester Square - We will pass through this world famous square and discover how and why it became the location for some of the biggest Film premiers in the world.
  • China Town/Soho/ Restaurant - Learn of our wonderfully rich immigrant past and its effect on the entertainments available here in London before arriving at one of Soho’s best French restaurants for a pre-theatre dinner.
  • Theatre Show - Cap it all off with a good seat at one of the premier West End productions.
