Fantastic timing. Just booked for wicked on Saturday afternoon as we were looking for a show with the kids. Can't wait. Was hoping for Matilda but Wicked was on the list to. Wahooooo can't wait!!!! Heat from me!!
Booked for Wicked
Bear with me on this, never been to a theatre in London before only my local ones and that was years ago. I'm wanting to take my daughter for her birthday, however I'm not great in busy places especially ones I don't know. Would probably travel down by train, so which theatre would be closest/easiest to get to? I'd love to stay but pretty sure it's out of our budget so would travel from south Yorkshire and back up the same day.

From SYorks, you'd probably need to stay over i'd imagine. All the theatres are in tube distance so it really doesn't matter which show or theatre you choose

Would vary a bit depending on which London station you arrive in at?
Neat. Off to see "touching the void". Thanks for posting this.
Last year was better, got tickets for Alladin and Phantom £10 each.

And where were your seats in the theatre?
Use the seatplan website to see actual seat views for the show you are considering ( there are actual views from many seats in most london theatres so you can check out the actual view from the seat available in this sale).
Sometimes you can get good views from the cheaper seats, but in many theatres the cheap seats have severely restricted views.

I booked phantom of the opera this time with seats 5 rows from the front in the stalls. These were £40 in the sale ( usually over £90). This is in a theatre where the cheaper seats have poor views, so would not see it at non-sale price.

Like others said it depends on which station you arrive at, and it probably would be best to stay over if at all possible as they all finish late (unless you attended a matinée)

"Wicked" is literally right outside of Victoria station so that would be a good choice. Victoria is one of London's largest stations and has plenty of overground links so you could likely get there without having to travel on the underground. If you don't like crowds then I'd definitely recommend avoiding the underground.

I really like the look of wicked and think she would love it. I've had a look and we can pick various stations to arrive it although if we do coach that would be Victoria. That's also cheapest although we would need to find somewhere to stay. Looking at it we would be able to set off early morning, do a matinee and be back late evening if by train but I kinda dont want to be rushing about.
Any recommendation for under 8 children?

I'd definitely recommend Wicked, I'm sure your daughter would really enjoy it too. The coach station is about 10 mins walk away so that's a good option too, but like you say I'm sure it would be better if you weren't rushing around too much. If at all possible it would be worth staying over, then you can visit a few other places around London while you're there.

I was just looking at School of rock and they've got tickets for the front row at £20. When I try to book them though it won't allow it, as it leaves one seat on the end. I can understand if I was leaving one space in the middle but what do they expect me to do, buy all three tickets?

Matilda is an excellent musical, and I'd imagine it would be suitable for an under 8 year old. My wife and I saw it a couple of years ago and loved it, it's written by Tim Minchin so there's some very clever writing (especially "The school song")
heat, thanks. save 10% at most of the theatres if you purchase a theatre token with 10% discount code WCitySave. go to theatretokens.com/buy…spx and change the amount to "other amount" and put the exact ticket price. i got an email with the e-token in <15mins and spent £36 for a £40 Phantom of the Opera stall ticket.

edit: and use PayPal if you want to use a cashback-providing Amex card.

def recommend day trip train option - matinee needed as return trains wouldnt work (for us anyway) took early one from swest into waterloo and then bought a picnic lunch walking along thames - spent good couple of hours in tate to tick that off our list then took one tube to theatre location. although so much to see in london and would have been lovely to stay longer just dont plan too much and shouldnt feel too stressy!? x
Super excited, I booked Wicked. I'm going to be a terrible mother and take her out of school early, so she will miss a day and a couple of hours. I booked a lovely Air b and b, train down but coach back up. Just trying to plan roughly what we can do, and where I can fit breaks in.
Just wondering, those sun flower lanyards that the stores are doing, does anyone take notice of them? Considering getting one.
Oh and before anyone makes judgemental comments about taking her out of school, let me say, I don't care for her age, in fact any age she works so hard in school and then helping to look after me. As a young carer, she's missed out on so many things, so this is a change of routine. One she's certainly earned!

I recently had to get my sisters to London for a big birthday Lion King theatre event.

The most cost effective way I found was a non-central London hotel, but not too far away.

If it's within your budget, I recommend the Premier Inn London Wembley Stadium (Zone 4) which is a new hotel and cost effective. Get a Mattinee showing so you have no worries getting back in the evening. You can string a few £29.50 days together.

The best way to get there is to get to Wembley Park (Metropolitan Line and Jubilee Lines) and then walk through Wembley Park (don't confuse with Premier Inn Wembley Park) and its a nice 12 min stroll to Premier Inn Wembley Stadium (a very nice walk and you'll feel safe). It is a retail outlet there and also has some nice places to eat (e.g. JRC Global Buffet - which was on TV recently about mega-buffets!).

The slower Jubilee Line also goes all the way to Stratford Shopping Centre if you sit on it long enough, but most journeys you're better off going on the Metropolitan Line which is one of the better modern lines and as aircon when needed on hot days.

(You can also walk to Wembley Central and get trains there).

Hope that helps!

Oh, forgot to mention....

1) Get oyster cards (should be obvious) for travel. It's the cheapest way to travel (you can setup your phone/credit card instead).

2) Download the City Mapper app on your phone - no matter where you are, it will guide you on the various travel options you have by train and bus. citymapper.com/lon…=en (website link, but get it on your phone ahead of time).

3) All the theatres are accessible fairly easily by tube. I wouldn't choose a show depending on its 'ease to get to'. They're all pretty much the same. But defnitely stick to the main ones rather than any obscure ones.

4) If you do go for Premier Inn Wembley Stadium and choose a Mattinee showing, you probably want to stay 2 nights. You want to ideally arrive on the first day and get settled into the hotel leisurely and drop off your stuff and then travel out leisurely on the second day to the theatre and return leisurely and then depart on the third day.

5) In general, hotels are most expensive on Saturdays (leisure peak) followed by Tuesdays and Wednesday nights (business peak). Cheapest nights arte Sundays (and sometimes Fridays but with London this might not always be the case). Matinees usually are on Wednesdays, committing you to the more expensive Tuesday/Wednesday nights. This shouldn't matter too much with a hotel more far out like in Wembley, but if you're booking a hotel more centrally, you might want an evening showing on a cheaper night (e.g. Sunday night) but you need to check that you have enough time when the performance finishes to get to your hotel if you rely on the tube etc (you should be okay if you're in central London).

Good luck!
Booked Phantom, Matilda and Wicked. Was going to try The Woman in Black but the trip advisor reviews are poor

Glad you managed to arrange your trip, and I think you'll definitely enjoy it more now you have a bit if time to sightsee.

One place I'd definitely recommend visiting is The Sky Garden. It's an indoor garden area with excellent views of London, it's a brilliant alternative to the shard and best of all it's free
You do have to book it, and they only release tickets for the next 3 or 4 weeks so you may have to check closer to the time you're visiting. They're first come first serve though so definitely book it as soon as possible.
Also I know you said you don't like crowds so just to pre-warn you, you have to travel up there in a lift, I think it's about 50 floors up. And you have to go through security similar to in an airport, so metal detectors and popping your personal belongings into an x-ray. But if you're comfortable with that it's definitely worth visiting as it offers excellent views, and the garden itself is lovely to wander around.
