Luxury Theatre breaks are all about the luxury hotels you can book as part of your London theatre and hotel package just as much as the very best theatre seats and the first class rail travel to get to London.

Royal Horseguard’s Hotel
Recently upgraded to 5 star status thanks to a huge renovation and investment, this it a beautiful hotel but it is also the perfect base for many West End shows on the banks of the Thames overlooking the river and the impressive London Eye.

InterContinental London Park Lane
Number one, Park Lane. The InterContinental London Park Lane can be found at one of the capital’s most prestigious addresses.
Built on the grounds of Queen Elizabeth’s childhood home, The InterContinental is a modern, luxury hotel in the heart of Mayfair, overlooking the Royal Parks.
With elegant natural interiors, luxuriously decorated, across its range of guest rooms, suites and public areas, award-winning seasonal cuisine delivered by internationally renowned chef Theo Randall and a world class personalised front of house team, the InterContinental London Park Lane is the flagship property of the world famous InterContinental Hotels & Resorts® chain.
Dining options includes Theo Randall`s restaurant, an intrinsically important destination on the London dining scene, serving up delicious, freshly sourced, rustic Italian cuisine. Theo’s on the Terrace is a more relaxed option and Najma Lebanon brings authentic Lebanese cuisine to the heart of Mayfair.
The hotel also has three bars for the pre-theatre or post show drink.
The InterContinental Park Lane also benefits from a fully equipped fitness centre and spa which offers a wide range of treatments.
Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire
My favourite five star hotel for a five star theatre break is the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire, which is actually situated in Leicester Square. With that sort of proximity to the best West End Theatres including His Majesty’s Theatre, The Haymarket, Theatre Royal, The Duke of York’s and The Garrick, you really cannot go wrong.
It is quite small so you can be assured of excellent personal attention from the hotel staff.
If you wish to eat here there is the central American cuisine of the Leicester Square Kitchen but my favourite option is the Hampshire Lounge Bar where they can enjoy an afternoon tea the equal of many more famous afternoon teas in London and people watch from the terrace as the world passes by. The hotel does have a gym and a spa but no pool… having said that, you are in London, so why you are going for a swim; heaven only knows!
Other 5 Star Hotels
But here at Theatre breaks we don’t just do traditional 5 star hotels for our Luxury Theatre Breaks.
Other five star hotels include the if you prefer your five stars with live stars then try the May Fair in Mayfair: not a day goes by it seems when there is someone being “papped” on the steps of the May Fair.
The Dilly Hotel used to be called the le Meridien. It is a beautiful 5 star hotel close to The Piccadill Theatre and The Criterion Theatre and, if that early morning swim is important to you wherever you are in the world, their swimming pool is the one to enjoy.
I don’t know whether I have mentioned your favourite base for a luxury Theatre break and of course, luxury theatre breaks need not only happen at the very best 5 star hotels, there are plenty of excellent 4 star hotels that would make you London trip memorable, it is just that sometimes, it is a good idea to push the boat out!
First Class Rail Travel
I’ve mentioned it before but all London Theatre Breaks come with optional rail travel – Standard class or First class. Obviously, here in the Luxury Theatre Breaks, section we travel first class. And with the deals we are able to offer, even first class travel needn’t break the bank
Luxury London Theatre Breaks
Whatever show you do decide to see, you get to choose your seats, so make sure you chose the very best. But, don’t always worry that you are not paying “top dollar”: in a theatre break, even some of the best seats have great deals and, as with our hotels and rail travel, you don’t have top pay the most to get the very best out of your short break.
