Our Top 10 West End Shows for Valentine's Day

Posted on 4 February 2019

Every year come February, Valentine's Day rolls around and every year, the gifts seem exactly the same; from a bouquet of red roses and a heart-shaped box of chocolates to a stuffed teddy bear and a fancy dinner. We've all been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. But this year for Valentines Day, why not try something a little bit different and see a romantic West End show? Treat your date to a not-so-typical gift with tickets to one of these 10 West End shows on for Valentine's Day!

Spice up the night with London theatre Valentine's Day tickets!

You won’t need a love potion to be in the good books with your date come this February 14th – let the phenomenal cast of Wicked defy gravity for you and leave you to soak up the romance. Or alternatively, you and your valentine can defy Valentine’s and focus on the unlikely friendship that’s at the heart of this spellbinding musical.

Phantom of the Opera
Currently the second longest-running musical in the West End and having made itself right at home at Her Majesty's Theatre for 33 years, Phantom of the Opera is without a doubt a classic and would be the best way to indulge in theatre and romance on the day of Saint Valentine.
