Theatre Breaks for London Plays

London plays may not be as popular as musicals but personally we much prefer a good play.

There are theatre breaks covering all kinds of London plays ranging from the hilarious The Play That Goes Wrong to the terrifying The Woman in Black.

There are long running classics such as Agatha Christie's Mousetrap which has been playing in London for over 60 years and is the world's longest running play. The Woman in Black is also one of the longest running plays having been playing in London for over 30 years.

So whatever kind of play you prefer there is sure to be a London theatre break to suit your taste.
