Venturing into virgin territory here.....when booking London theatre tickets with lastminute.com, they don't appear to give seat allocations. Is this correct? Is it pot luck within a price range? Many thanks.

Re: lastminute.com

by hawkhead

Whoops, should have read the faqs, which if I had seen the link, I would have done. So, it's pot luck. Hmmmm.......

Re: lastminute.com

by Dabs

Yep, it's pot luck, when I've booked through them I picked up the tickets a couple of hours before the show. Some of the smaller theaters don't have bad seats but since you are getting them at a discount I would suspect that they wait until the end and give you seats, not on the date that you book them.

I'm assuming you've also used the TKTS booth? In some ways I've had better luck with them, they will tell you which shows they have good seats for and I'll usually go with that provided I don't have my heart set on a particular show.

Thanks, Dabs - I prefer to have my tickets booked beforehand. I really cannot be bothered to go the TKTS booth route, especially as Leicester Square and Brent Cross are not on my beaten path!

Re: lastminute.com

by Dabs

I'm trying to think what I used lastminute for, I'm pretty sure I got "Woman in Black" through them and had a decent seat, I think I also got "Phantom of the Opera" and "39 Steps" when I needed to have the tickets in hand. None of them had bad seats but none of them was "oh wow look where I'm sitting"

You might also have a look at www.broadwaybox.com, when I just tested one of their discount offers it did come up with seat numbers after I hit "book" but before I had to finalize the transaction

Thank you - I'll just do my usual and keep going through all the sites! West End prices are positively eye-watering but I've found in the past that I can usually get a bargain..... well, a good discount for a reasonable seat!

Re: lastminute.com

That's funny, even with the exchange rate I can almost always see something cheaper in London than in the US thanks to TKTS etc. Although with the economy the way it is, I'm seeing a lot more tickets to the bigger shows popping up on the 1/2 price sights these days.

I think I've also seen this website listed as a good place although I've never used it

Well, US prices must be wateringly expensive in both eyes, not just one!! I'll try theatremoneky - always willing to try and hunt down a bargain.

City of London and London Boroughs

by Airpunk

The City of London, sometimes just called “the square mile”, is the heart of historic London. However, only few people live here as it has become a business district dominated by office buildings. Some of the best known are Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Camden. Everywhere in the city, you still find signs of this divisions. It may be just a street sign, but especially in the City of London, you may find sculptures or other larger items showing you the border. The dragon of this picture is located at Victoria Embankment, between Temple Lane and Temple tube station.
Although there are many small details to be spotted, only one of London’s original city gates has survived. It is Temple bar gate which is now located at Paternoster Square. Its original location was at the Strand. For more information about Temple Bar gate, please check out my “Things to do” tip about it.

Long boats and relaxed atmosphere

by bzh

Little Venice, as is known the area along the canals west of Edgware Road, is a surprising oasis of tranquility in the midst of the big city. The quiet water reflects the bright colours of the long boats, while the people who live on them seem oblivious of the bustle a few streets away.

All the world's a...

Nestled comfortably beside Tate Modern and the futuristic but wobbly Millennium Bridge is Sheakespeare's Globe theatre, a perfect working reconstruction of the Wooden O in which the Bard gave the world his drama. The original burnt down in 1613, though it reopened only to be finally closed by the Puritans in the 1650s. Sam Wanamaker, the actor and father of Zoe, made it his lifelong task to get the Gobe rebuilt on the original site (or near as may be) in Southwark, and it finally opened in 1997 (after his death), showing not only Shakespeare and other Eliizabethan and Jacobean classics, but much brand new drama too, all al fresco as in the early 1600s. Members of the audience ar not to act as they do in modern theatres today; they can eat and drink and cheer and boo as much as in Will's day.
Of course the reason that the Globe (and the rose) theatre was here in the first place, and not within the bounds of the city, is that theatres were banned in London, with actors deemed ungodly and dirty creatures - which is why women were not allowed on the stage to mingle with them. The first theatre in fact to be built within the borders of The City was the Mermaid, as late as the 1950s.
But if you want to see Hamlet as Shakespeare truly intended, come Bankside.
