Get the lowdown as you take in the highlights of the world-famous West End in London with an actor and guide.
Take a whirlwind tour through London’s theatre with the 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. 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.
