Musicals in London - a real treat!

Musicals in London – a real treat!

Have you ever gone to the theatre wondering where it is: is there a tube station nearby, a restaurant, a pub or even a hotel?
Here is a list of London Musicals – still on and opening soon.

Also listed is a nearby hotel or two and the closest tube station if you need to travel. Also a few bars and restaurants for that post show drink or pre-theatre dinner.
No inciteful comment I’m afraid – that’s elsewhere –  just a list:  I hope this is of use! You can even book your London musical Theatre Break here!
