Making a Family Trip to London Theatre Affordable

If you family fancy a trip to the West End for a musical and more, please make sure you do it the affordable way by taking advantage of the deals outlined below.

Cheap Train Fares

Jumping on a train to London is often the simplest and quickest way to travel. Avoid congestion charges, long traffic jams and extortionate parking fees and opt for the scenic option instead. Depending on your train route, Southern Rail offer some great off-peak deals like kids travel for £1 when accompanied by an adult. If there is a large group of you travelling together there is also a ‘Super Group’ deal where up to 10 people can travel off peak together for £20 or less – saving up to £170! Check out the website for more exclusive online offers and full terms and conditions. If you are travelling from further afield, why not check out The Train Line instead.

It’s also an idea to opt for a travel card when purchasing your train ticket as these can be used for London travel within zones 1-6 – perfect of you need to jump on the tube or want to catch some sights whilst bussing round London. Alternatively, pick up an Oyster card from a London train station to gain access to cheaper London travel.

Meal Deals

London has an abundance of eateries and plenty of family favourites to keep the kids happy and hunger at bay – from Burger King to Pizza Express. Don’t forget to print off some 2-4-2 restaurant vouchers before you go so you can save pennies for ice cream at the theatre! MoneySavingExpert.com has a section dedicated to these kind of offers so check that out before you leave to familiarise yourself with some of the nearby restaurants and deals.

Last Minute Ticket Deals

Meant to be going to Thorpe Park but it’s raining? Planned a camping trip and the car’s packed in? Don’t fret because there are often heavily discounted tickets available online for such last minute panics. For example, GetMeIn.com have a dedicated section where you can grab bargain tickets for last minute performances even up to a few hours before, meaning you can still enjoy your day.
