Frequently Asked Questions

What are the top London theatre shows in 2024?

2024 is an exciting time for West End theatre. Prestige, star-driven plays in London are always popular so don't wait to book Dr Strangelove tickets with Steve Coogan or The Duchess with Jodie Comer for poignant and stimulating evenings out. Staple, crowd-pleasing West End musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables and Wicked are also great choices that continue to delight huge audiences.

This year sees the long-awaited return of classic musicals such as Hello, Dolly! starring Imelda Staunton, comedies including Fawlty Towers, and exciting new shows like Why Am I So Single? from the creators of SIX. If you're thinking about booking, avoid disappointment and do it today; they are some of the best London theatre shows all year and tickets will fly out of the door.

What are the showtimes for West End Theatres?

Most West End shows start at 7.30pm for their evening performances, while 2.30pm or 3pm are standard for London matinee shows. There are some exceptions to this, such as Matilda and Frozen, which start evening performances at 7pm. Shows aimed specifically at young children may adhere to even earlier showtimes. Always check showtimes thoroughly when booking London theatre tickets and planning your visit.

Where in London is the West End?

The West End is located in the Western region of Central London; West of the City of London and East of Mayfair. Many West End theatres can be found along major thoroughfares such as the Strand, Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road. Popular tourist areas such as Leicester Square and Covent Garden are part of the West End. Tube stations that are well located for West End theatres include Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.

Why is the London theatre district called 'The West End'?

The theatre district is located in Central London, but just to the West of what is known as 'the City of London'; the commercial district surrounding tube stations such as Bank and Monument. In the early 19th Century, areas West of Charing Cross were highly fashionable and this is when the term 'the West End' became widely used. While the urban sprawl of London now extends much farther West than the theatre district, the majority of popular theatres are located in what was traditionally the Western end of the city, before it merged with the nearby city of Westminster to become the city recognisable today.
