Visiting the theatre needn’t be an experience just for adults, many plays and musicals in London theatres are suitable for children as well as adults. Another common misconception regarding London theatre trips is that taking the whole family costs more than a week’s holiday. Taking the family for a day trip to London, including a show needn’t cost a fortune.

Not only is a trip to the theatre fun and exciting as a child, it can also be educational too. London theatres are packed with history and culture and some London shows are based upon literature studied in the English curriculum.

It is usually recommended to take children no younger than 3 or 4 to the theatre as their attention span is quite short and the typical theatre show lasts between 1 and 3 hours (with intervals). Children that are slightly older will usually enjoy and be attentive to the performance.
