Whether you consider yourself to be a true theatre nerd or not, visiting a city's theatre district is one of the best ways to enrich and enliven your city break or holiday. Come and experience some of the best and most exciting live theatre the world has to offer at these cities.
London is the ultimate hub for live theatre. From its unmissable plays to its long-running, unforgettable musicals such as Les Misérables and The Lion King in the city's bustling West End, there is always plenty to choose from. You can also decide to stroll along the River Thames and catch a play at either the world-renowned National Theatre, or experience what is was like to watch a play in Shakespeare's time in the reconstructed, open-air Globe Theatre.
For the most devoted of theatre fans, a visit to the Theatre Café in Soho is also a must. The walls here are completely covered with posters of shows both past and present and you will often be able to catch a glimpse of some famous stars of the stage, relaxing and having a drink before they take to the stage in the evening, or even treating fans to an exclusive performance and Q&A session.
