Christmas Shows In London

This year, ditch the local panto and head to the dazzling festive lights of the West End for a glamorous London theatre break instead. You can enjoy one of Theatreland's Christmas treats like Elf or take in a classic like The Lion King before heading back to your cosy, nearby hotel for a mince pie. While you're in London, you've got the perfect opportunity to do pick up a few extra-special Christmas presents at one of the city's world-famous department stores or markets. If you've already finished your shopping, perhaps visit an outdoor ice rink for a skate and winter selfie or just explore the city and enjoy the sights.

London is packed with incredible things to see and do at this time of year and when the sun sets, the twinkling of Christmas lights casts a magical glow over much of the city. Special events and festive surprises are around every corner and delicious Christmas delicacies from all around the world are available wherever you look. With ticket and hotel packages available from £53 per person, a Show & Stay theatre break is the perfect way to spoil yourself without blowing the Christmas budget. If you're feeling really generous, our theatre break packages also make incredible gifts.

We know Christmas can be expensive which is why we offer great deals on all of our Christmas theatre breaks. You can make even more savings when you book your rail travel with us too.
