Short Breaks in London with Theatre Breaks

News Update: Summer is done with.

And we are already half way to half term! So maybe one of our short breaks in London would be just the thing to book: get away for a couple of days, see a show, do some of the touristy things that you have been promising yourself that one day you will do: maybe entertain the children with a family break over half term.

Seasonal Theatre Breaks

There are some great shows and some great deals in London at the moment – for the children and for the grown-ups – and, if you don’t have something to celebrate personally, then why not use half term or Christmas as a great excuse!

New shows for a short break in London include White Christmas, Cats, Evita, Memphis and made in Dagenham joining more recent shows such as The Book Of Mormon, The Commitments and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Miss Saigon.

Short Breaks: When is the best time to go?

Half Term Breaks, Christmas, New Year – there are a lot of excuses to come to London but maybe you have your own ones. Short breaks are a perfect way to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or maybe even a hen night! The great attractions are open pretty much every day of the year and every day now there is a world class musical being performed in one of London’s great West End theatres.

Short Breaks Favourite Dates

So here are the dates that should be in your diary between now and your next summer holiday in 2015!

Short Breaks to London are a favourite for any one of them.

  • Christmas Eve is on a Wednesday this year which means that the Christmas break is 5 days long!
  • Valentine’s Day: 14 February is on a Saturday in 2015 so no excuse not to book a short break!
  • Easter Dates: Good Friday 03 April 2015, Easter Sunday 05 April 2015 Easter Monday 06 April 2015
  • May Day Holiday 04 May 2015
  • Spring Bank Holiday Monday 25 May 2015
  • August Bank Holiday 31 August 2015

If your holidays are bound by the school year then the dates you will be interested in are

  • October Half term: Monday 27th to Friday 31st October 2014
  • Christmas School Holidays start from Friday 19th December 2014
    • Back to school on 05 January 2015

  • Summer Half term: Monday 25th to Friday 29th May 2015
  • Summer term ends 21 July 2015

There may be some regional variations but these are basically it!

What ever days during the week you chose to come to London there will be a world class show playing to create a highlight to your short break – even Sundays host half -a-dozen shows when just a couple of years ago if you took a short break over a Sunday the theatres in London were “dark”.


The busiest days are Saturdays but fortunately London hotels offer some great deals still – especially for two night stays. And if you book your theatre tickets for the Friday night, or the Saturday matinee, or even a Sunday matinee then you really can get some great discounts on those too.

Short Breaks By Rail

A discounted theatre break is a really great short break!  And what do you get included? Half price dining vouchers, Attraction Discount Vouchers and more importantly the opportunity to save money on the rail journey into London.

Our Zonal pricing system means that you can save up to 40% on regular fares and often beat the apex tickets too PLUS you don’t have to commit to a particular train, leaving you free to decide when you want to leave London.

London Events

And if you haven’t found your perfect excuse so far what about one of these dates:
