Theatre in London
London is an obvious destination for those seeking a weekend theatre break – its West End is almost purpose-built for theatre-goers. Pre-show meals are offered at many restaurants, and if you’re open-minded about what you’d like to see, queue at the London Theatre tickets booth in Leicester Square and grab seats for whatever’s available.
Theatre in Edinburgh
Edinburgh, home to the famous Fringe Festival, boasts the UK’s largest theatre – Edinburgh Playhouse, testament to the city’s love of the stage. But whether it’s a former church or a pub attic, there are places to enjoy a show all over the Scottish capital.
Theatre in Cornwall
Love theatre, but not busy cities? On a sunny day, nothing can beat the drama of a performance at Cornwall’s open-air Minack Theatre – it’s a cliff top auditorium with the sea for a backdrop!
