The Phantom of the Opera is a classic. It’s not only famous for its stirring drama and score, but also the amazing sets and talented cast. That’s surely why some fans come back to see it time and time again.
On the other hand, if you like energy and humour, then Matilda the Musical is for you. Based on the book by Roald Dahl, this story is full of great, vivid characters. In fact, it’s been a hit with adults and kids alike. So it offers great entertainment for all the family.

If you’re visiting with kids, a musical can be a magical experience. So how about the Lion King? This spectacular classic has had rave reviews since it began, and we’re sure kids will love it.
Get cheap tickets
Tickets are not always cheap. However, you can find good deals in several ways. Firstly, as always, it makes sense to book well in advance. Of course, this is the best option if you want to get seats for the whole family.
Second, our tip is to visit the ticket booth in Leicester Square. This is best for last minute tickets. Third, try the ‘returns’ at the theatre itself. Venues often have a few returned tickets to resell, so it’s worth asking. But make sure you go early!
