BLOG : Last Minute Tickets in London

Sunday 05 June 2011

Planning a night out is always done better in advance, but of course even if you know exactly what you want to do, getting around to buying tickets to that must see show and making reservation at the favourite restaurant can always slip your mind. Thank god it is so easy to get last minute theatre tickets in London, without the trouble involved in going in person from venue to venue looking for shows that catch your fancy. With so many websites dedicated to providing all the theatre news you need, all you have to do is get online and figure out which show to see. The best part is you can choose the seats of your liking, and buy the tickets online in a matter of minutes.

The biggest challenge could be picking that one play, which will make your evening a fun success. You can choose from musicals, dramas, operas, ballets, etc. Good musicals to see are Betty Blue Eyes, Betwixt!, Ghost The Musical, Legally Blonde, Les Miserables, Lion King, Mamma Mia!, among others. If you do not enjoy too much music and dance you could catch shows like Betrayal, Much Ado About Nothing, 39 Steps, Being Shakespeare, In a Forest Dark and Deep, or Ghost Stories. Chances to get a good deal online are in your favour, as ticketing sites often are the ones offering the best seats for the lowest price.

In fact, you could even buy packages that include a play and dinner. Some websites even have tickets on sale for other London attractions like the London Dungeon, London Eye, Madame Tussauds, Classic Lunch Cruise, Afternoon Tea Cruise, and the like in case you want to plan a Saturday or Sunday. This can be a great idea as West End is London’s theatre district, and houses most venues in addition to many fine dining restaurants, famous hotels, and retail shopping options to spend quality time with family or friends.

So, the next time you think you are too late to get your hands on some good seats for that show your boyfriend wants to see, or you just can’t seem to think of a good idea for a date with that girl you like from the Uni, try an online source to get last minute tickets in London. Not only will you be surprised at how quick and easy the whole process is, but you will also be pleased about the great deal you can get for a reasonable price.
