Spending A Night In London’s West End




London is known for a lot of different things, though theatre is one of the few traits which has stood the test of time. Throughout history, people in this part of the UK have been enjoying performing arts, from the earliest days of Roman settlement in the area, and this trend is still very much alive today. Spending a night in the West End is one of the best ways to experience this part of London. To make your planning all the easier, this post will be exploring the different aspects of a night like this, giving you some ideas and pushing you in the right direction.

Before The Show 
A lot of theatrical performances end up being quite a bit longer than people expect, and it can be uncomfortable to go into this without first having a bite to eat. Thankfully, London is filled to the brim with some of the most popular restaurants in England, and getting to them is easier than you might think. The West End itself has plenty of options, though these often get booked up quite quickly, and you may have to go further afield if you don’t book in advance.

Getting Around The City 
There are loads of options for transport in London, and you don’t need to have your own car to get around quickly. Uber is very popular, making it easy for those who already use this app to find rides around the city. Along with this, you could also think about the tube system or buses, as these can also be very quick, and will be a lot cheaper than using taxis. If you want a more quaint experience, talking to one of the many rickshaw riders in the West End will give you the chance to see the city at a slower speed.

The Show 
Picking the show you want to watch should always be done before the day, as tickets will be booked up by the time the night rolls around. West End tickets can be found across the web, and will give you access to a huge range of different shows, from classic hits to modern gems, without costing you a small fortune. The sooner you book the better the seats you will be able to get, though some people like to wait and get a better deal.

After The Show 
Once the show is all done and dusted, you will probably have a little bit more time to fill before you want to settle for the night. Nightlife in London is like no other city, with an eclectic mix of rowdy nightclubs and high-end bars. Live music is very popular, though those with different tastes will be happy to have the option to watch some poetry or smaller theatrical performances.

Hopefully, this post will leave you feeling inspired to spend a night in London’s West End. A lot of people miss out on this opportunity, often underestimating the power of a live show. If you like movies and television, you’ll love theatre.
