Hotel & theatre break - end of October

Hi, finally persuaded my hubby to go and see Jersey Boys in London - any advice appreciated on best way to book? Are the online 'theatre and hotel break company's' any good - any recommendations appreciated. Will be doing matinee on Sunday afternoon, so one night stay?

Thanks, Jackie O

Not sure about those package deals but when I booked this for my mum, the best seats and prices were on the theatre's own website rather than Ticketmaster - still far from cheap though.


However, whilst it is very expensive, she loved it and everyone else says the same.

As for booking a hotel, Hotels.com or Booking.com usually do the business.

I go with the theatre's website for tickets too. We usually stay at the Travelodge in Covent garden for a one nighter and breakfast in one of the cafes in Neal Street area.

That show won't sell out. Buy from the theatre on the day.

I would book direct with the box office.

However, if you want to risk it, this show is discounted at the Leicester Square ticket booth currently and has been for a while. You can book tickets up to 7 days in advance.


I have booked hotel/theatre packages but years ago and they weren't cheap. Now I go the independent route which I would suggest that you do.

For hotels I always use laterooms and they have never let me down.

Hope that helps.

Careful about 'theatre and hotel break company's'. I remember a thread from a number of months back where people had paid hundreds of pounds and when they arrived at the theatre, no booking existed and they had great difficulty in obtaining a refund or even getting in touch with the company, who'd either gone into liquidation or done a runner.

Why let the company pick your theatre seat and hotel, neither of which is necessarily what you'd choose, when it is so easy to do it yourself? You don't go to a restaurant and ask the waiter to pick your meal for you.

For the theatre ticket go to the theatre's own website and crosscheck the seats they're offering with Theatremonkey. For hotels just browse this forum once you've established your budget.

BTW, I loved Jersey Boys. Great choice.
