Short Breaks in London with Theatre Breaks

News Update: Christmas is done with.

And we are not even half way to the Easter holidays! But 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 Valentine’s Day, half term, St Patricks Day or Mothers day as a great excuse!

New shows for a short break in London include The Bodyguard, The Book Of Mormon, The Commitments and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Coming in 2014 we can look forward to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty and Miss Saigon.

Short Breaks: When is the best time to go?

Half Term Breaks, Easter Breaks, Valentine’s Breaks, Whitsun Breaks and May Day – 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 summer holiday.  Short Breaks to London are a favourite for any one of them.

  • Easter Dates: Good Friday 18 April 2014, Easter Sunday 20 April 2014 Easter Monday 21 April 2014
  • May Day Holiday 05 May 2014
  • Spring Bank Holiday Monday 26 May 2014

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

  • Half term: Monday 17th February 2014 to Friday 21st February 2014
  • Easter Break: Monday 7th April 2014 to Monday 21st April 2014
  • Half term: Monday 26th May 2014 to Friday 30th May 2014

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.

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