Get the lowdown as you take in the highlights the world-famous West End in London with an actor and guide
Take a whirlwind tour through London’s theatre- or theater to our transatlantic cousins- history in the West End with our resident Urban Saunters actor and guide. Hear all about the early days of theatre’s bad reputation, the meeting of a King and a working girl, life as a war-time actor, shocking backstage murders and onwards to explore a West End world of Rogers & Hammerstein, Frank Matcham, Andrew Lloyd Webber, the Lion King, Mousetrap, Harold Pinter, Noël Coward and some of the most famous playhouses in London and the world.
Starting at the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, you’ll discover 17 venues spanning centuries of theatrical history complete with tips on how to visit the restaurants and churches popular with the local actors and a whole chorus-line of gossip and scandal from backstage.
You’ll be an expert on the West End before you can say ‘Macbeth’... though of course, we don’t recommend saying that name on a theatre tour.
