Life is But a Theatre - A Play

“By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show”

--Samuel Johnson

London is famous for its theatrical productions, in particular its musicals. If you're interested in watching stage shows, it is recommended that you check out the hottest shows in London's Theatreland, including outstanding new productions and long-running favourites. London attracts the greatest international musicians as well as the finest orchestras and performing arts companies.

London Theatre Shows Musicals

From the revival production of Chicago, set in the 1920's at the Cambridge- small time night club singer Roxie Hart kills her lover, defended by Billy Flynn. Boublil and Schonberg's mesmerising Les Misérables, at the Queens Theatre, set around the French Revolution. From the pen of Lloyd Webber- the phenomenally popular Phantom of the Opera, at Her Majesty's , Haymarket.

The sheer polish (and such a strong cast) of Lloyd Webber's production of the Sound of Music at the Palladium. Such a memorable and timeless score and lyrics from Rodgers and Hammerstein. Who can forget songs such as "My favorite things"; "Climb every mountain", and "How do you solve a problem like Maria?"

Many restaurants and hotels in Central London Hotels have theatre specials, combining the cost of a meal and or accommodation with a theatre ticket for the show of your choice. Why not treat your partner to a romantic luxury hotel break?

The Victoria Palace Theatre is a West End theatre in Victoria Street, in the City of Westminster. Situated opposite Victoria Station, it was designed by the prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham and opened in 1911 on the site of a former music hall[1]. The domed auditorium seats 1,550 people. A sliding roof helps ventilate the auditorium during the intervals, which was a novelty feature in the days of heavy smoking during performances.

In visiting this great spot, be sure to have your accommodations taken care of at Victoria Hotels.

London's Theatreland

London's Theatreland is the finest in the world, with swarms of Hollywood stars making pilgrimages across the pond to tread the hallowed boards of The West End. In recent years the capital's theatre scene has become even more vibrant with shows like 'One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest' and 'Jerry Springer' playing to packed houses alongside period pieces such as 'Julius Caesar' and 'The Woman in Black'. Choose a hotel in the heart of Theatreland and you can hop from one show to another, stopping off for a tasty meal in between, without ever having to board a bus, train or taxi. Go online and browse the latest shows before booking tickets for your choice performances. You can even organise online a range of theatre and dinner packages throughout your stay for the ultimate, easy-going trip.

A varied collection of London City Hotels lets you enjoy all the area has to offer: From Shopping on Regents Street and Oxford Street; to the classic London architecture of Mayfair and Park Lane.

Once a grand residential area, Piccadilly today is a wide, busy street in London's West End, stretching from Hyde Park Corner past Green Park to Piccadilly Circus. Along the way, there's much to see and do. Piccadilly is graced by some splendid hotels: the Athenaem, Le Meridien, the Park Lane Sheraton and, most famously, the Ritz offer five-star hospitality. Always worth a visit is Fortnum & Mason, the Piccadilly store famed for its luxury food, wine and hampers. Another attraction is the Royal Academy of Arts, which hosts exhibitions and special events, while the Wellington Museum, in Apsley House, displays a collection of military memorabilia belonging to the first Duke Of Wellington, who lived there. Also in Piccadilly is St James's parish church, designed by Christopher Wren and consecrated in 1684. It has an adjacent market selling antiques, arts and crafts from Tuesday to Saturday. Piccadilly Circus is famed for the statue popularly known as Eros and for its neon advertising displays, although today's signs are fewer and more often lit by LED.

Whether you are visiting Piccadilly for business or just after couple of days in town, London Piccadilly Hotels are a perfect base for exploring the West End, Carnaby Street and Leicester Square. You can make a great base for appreciating historical and original London with buildings lifted straight out of the pages of Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Always bear in mind that the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Experience, travel - these are as education in themselves.
