Thought this was a cracking deal for one of Londons most popular ever plays. The hotel is basic, but looks adequate (I'll post images below) and as the ticket prices for "The Woman in Black" are normally up to £42.50 per person thought this looked a bargain mini break. Lots of dates available at this price (at time of posting) (Mon to Thurs mostly in April or May, but lots of Mon - Fr in June and July)

The Woman in Black theatre break - budget tickets and hotel package

The second longest running play in the West End at the Fortune Theatre. Choose from a selection of London hotels to build a bargain ticket & hotel package...

This summer The Woman in Black is celebrating its 20th birthday in the West End. Since 1989, over seven million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most exciting, spooky, gripping and successful theatre events ever staged.

Unanimously acclaimed by the critics, Stephen Mallatratts adaptation of Susan Hills best selling novel combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. It is a formula that provides audiences with an evening of unremitting drama as they are transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.

Cast includes: Julian Forsyth and Christopher Naylor.

Directed by Robin Herford

Critics' choice : -

Romantic? You seen the Woman In Black? Won't be very romantic when you both soil yourselves in fear. A great play, one of my favourites. It tours, but it's well worth seeing in London at its 'home' in the Fortune. The theatre adds to the atmosphere. Great deal.

We've taken up several 'best available seat' offers with lastminute and I'm not at all convinced you actually get the best available. Some times we've been in restricted view seats when large blocks of good seats remain empty. Admittedly some seats will be no-shows, but not that many. I suppose we could have made a move for the better seats at the interval.
Don't take the reviews quoted above for the play as totally honest either. You would have to be very easily scared to find this remotely spine-chilling.
The price is from £40.69 per person (with not many dates at that price), so a minimum cost of £81.38 for 1 night in a very basic hotel, and 2 (not necessarily good) seats to a very basic play.
Booking a Travelodge and seeing some fringe theatre would be cheaper and more memorable.

And I am not quite convinced a night in Bolton (for example) at the Octagon and Travelodge quite compares to a trip to see the second longest running play in London

Accept that availability after April is good, but still think this is a very average deal. 'The rooms have all the basics a hotel guest would expect' - I would expect a toilet and shower or bath.

Can't comment on the joys of the Travelodge and Octagon in Bolton, but there are some good Travelodges in London which are probably part of the current £19/night offer, and I think you are confusing regional theatre with fringe theatre.

good deal, not sure about the play tho. i wouldnt worry about what seats your order, ive never had a problem with staff by moving to empty seats that are nearer or right at the front before.

cold live in london so hotel not needed

Me and the missus went in to see this a while back up in Aberdeen and got a few good jumps.

Granted that some of them was just due to someone screaming amplified really loud but just seeing the title in the deal was enough to send a tingle down my spine.

I would recommend going to see it.

Love going to London and the Theatre - mainly like musicals but went to see the Lady in Black late last year - absolutely brilliant. One of the best plays that I have seen. I can't recommend it highly enough.

cold live in london so hotel not needed



Wow, a profound judgement call!

I agree, great play and good hotel deal into the bargain. I'm up in Liverpool and considering this... After all, I'd get the chance of nearly two days (one day either side of the night in the hotel obv.) to nose around the capital as well as seeing a play.

i've been to see woman in black twice and loved it bot times. the first time scared the crap out of me cos i sat on one of the aisle seats....welll u have to see the play to know why!! great stuff!!

If you consider when it was written then it's no doubt impressive but if you're comparing it with any other stories you've seen/read then you'd probably feel you've seen/read very similar before even though this would probably predate them. Oh, and I didn't find it scary.

Great deal though if you like this kind of show, I think I paid around £35 for middle-ish seating.
