Theatreland Walking Tours are now booking for 2009, with the first tour of the year taking place on 19 April. The experience will take you behind the grand exteriors of the theatres of the West End, to reveal the history and traditions of the world’s number one theatre district.

Covering a wide and varied area, the tours include the history of some of the West End’s most iconic theatres such as the London Palladium, Theatre Royal Haymarket and Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
As well as featuring interesting and important facts about the famous venues, the tour also includes numerous anecdotes about flamboyant actor managers, controversial playwrights and even a ghost story or two.
Lasting two hours, the tours take play on Sunday 19 April, 17, 31 May, 14, 21 June, 26 July, 30 August, 13, 27 September and 18 October and cost £8 per person.
