New travel guide for theatregoers

Published 24 July 2015

At Official London Theatre, we’re committed to making your trip to see a show as enjoyable and straight forward as possible, which is why we’ve teamed up with TfL to produce a new London Theatre Travel Guide.

While London can sometimes seem a daunting city to navigate, this new handy interactive guide makes it simple with everything you could possibly want to know about how to best plan your trip collected together in one place.

From the easiest ways to book travel tickets and pay to a guide to using TfL’s brilliant Journey Planner and even alternative modes of travelling round the city, the guide includes everything you could want to know.

There’s also tips on how to travel to the many incredible theatres located outside of the West End and even suggestions as to how best to make your trip a day to remember with restaurant, shopping and hotel recommendations.

The London Theatre Travel Guide could not come at a better time with just days until thousands of families will start arriving in the capital for Kids Week, our annual kids go free ticket promotion. This year the hugely popular celebration of family theatregoing runs for the whole month of August and there are still thousands of tickets available to book.

Speaking about the new guide, the Society of London Theatre’s Julian Bird, CEO of the organisation behind Official London Theatre, commented: “Theatre is loved by Londoners and visitors to the city alike and with more families than ever before set to visit London for Kids Week 2015 now is the perfect time to release this guide which will help everyone make the most of their visit to Theatreland.”

TfL are equally as thrilled to be helping theatregoers, with Mark Evers, Transport for London’s Director of Customer Strategy, saying: “The London Theatre Travel Guide is a great idea. It puts theatre and travel information in one place to make sure everyone gets the most out of their time in the Capital. There are lots of great shows and the best way to visit them is by public transport.”
