While theatre in London is renowned worldwide, it can also be daunting, especially for those in London for the first time.
Each week there are 280,000 tickets sold for productions across the capital, so figuring out which shows to see and how not to break the bank can be difficult.
The best deals currently available in London are for Book of Mormon, Aladdin, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Kinky Boots. Each of these productions has cheap top quality seats available for £20 each, though you can only buy two per person.
This can lead to mammoth savings so it's really worthwhile if you have the time to queue or go to the theatre early. Book of Mormon and Aladdin hold lotteries two and a half hours before every show, and Harry Potter offers a chance every Friday at 1pm to enter online for the next week's tickets.
Kinky Boots tickets however, mean getting there at 10:30am. They also offer a lottery on the TodayTix app which also offers a range of deals on theatre tickets. At peak times it is harder to get tickets so going mid-week means you have a better chance of succeeding, but all effort is worthwhile if it means you could get front row seats to some of London's hottest shows.
For more assured tickets you can book online through the theatre's website and if you are in London it is always a good idea the TKTS box office in Leicester Square which does some of the best daily deals available, plus it's a great opportunity to visit one of London's most historic areas.
