NEW! LONDON GROUP TOUR – Value Sunday Theatre Break
Includes a good theatre ticket and accommodation & breakfast
In conjunction with the St Giles Hotel London, we are delighted to offer some value for money London Theatre breaks for 2019. This excellent hotel is situated on Tottenham Court Road, at its junction with Oxford Street, and with such a great location, it means you are really staying in the ‘Heart of Central London’.
Our package which is valid most Sundays throughout 2019 will include an overnight stay in the hotel with breakfast on Monday morning, and a top price ticket to either Thriller Live at the Lyric Theatre or The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre.
There is the option to arrange a pre-theatre meal before the show either at the hotel or in a restaurant close to the Theatre, and after the show maybe a night cap in one of the many bars or cafes in the area.
And on Monday morning, before departing, why not visit one of the famous London attractions, or simply take the opportunity for some fabulous shopping – just minutes from your hotel.
This offer has limited availability so book without delay.
Available on most Sundays throughout 2019
Suggested itinerary by coach
Arrival in London and evening at the Theatre
Arrive in London during the afternoon. Your room will be ready from around 3.00pm, so if arriving earlier why not do a spot of sightseeing in Central London. Curtain is up at 7.30pm, so you can either eat at your leisure prior to the show, or alternatively we can arrange a group meal in the hotel for £22, or at a restaurant near the theatre.
We can also offer tickets to Matilda, Lion King or School of Rock, but these will be at a supplement (see below).
Take your seats for the show (your seats will usually be in the Stalls or Dress Circle). The shows finish just after 10.00pm, and you can then return to the hotel or stay on for a night cap!
Free day in London
There will be an English breakfast served in the hotel, now the day is free for you to choose. Maybe a day around the shops – you couldn’t be better placed, with Oxford Street and Regent Street both within an easy walk. The nearest Underground station is 2 minutes walk from the hotel (Tottenham Court Road – Northern Line & Central line) so if you want to explore on your own, that’s not a problem.
We can also suggest some of the more popular attractions such as the London Eye, the Tower of London, a River Cruise on the Thames or a visit to Madame Tussauds – we will be pleased to quote and book tickets, or maybe something a bit different, visit the magnificent Southwark Cathedral, and a walking tour along the South Bank including Borough Market, a tour of the Globe Theatre, a visit to the London Stadium within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park or a visit to an East London Smoked Salmon Warehouse – we have plenty of ideas and suggestions that we will be pleased to arrange.
