Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

Are you planning a trip to England and wondering which London hotels are best for attending the theatre? Are you looking for a super cultural experience? The capital of England and the United Kingdom is the European Union's most populous city and home to some 7.5 million people, well over 3,000 museums and more than 100 theatres.

Whether you are a theatre buff or just looking for an evening of excitement and entertainment, London is the place for you. At any given time, you will find offerings from Shakespeare to Mary Poppins, Lion King to the Blue Man Group, Guys and Dolls to Monty Python?s Spamalot. Prices are anywhere from affordable to expensive. Whether you go alone or with a group of friends, you'll find excitement and options.

You may be asking yourself; which London hotels are best for attending the theatre? That depends on your interests and your wallet. First, you will want to decide which of the many plays you want to see. You might want to stay close to one or more of the theatres. Perhaps you prefer to stay in a more central location, near public transportation (such as the "Tube", London's subway) so you can get around and do some sightseeing during the day. London offers options for everyone, whether you prefer a boutique hotel or a Bed & Breakfast. Alone, with your partner or in a group, you will find the city has endless possibilities. Some London hotels also offer packages that include theatre tickets. If you and a group of friends want to see some shows together, check with the hotel. Some offer special group rates for 10 to 12 or more.

While theatre is a highlight, London has so much more to offer. Besides the Globe Theatre and Royal Opera House, you have Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and St. Paul's Cathedral. If history and culture are more of interest, do not miss the British Museum. For art, it is the National Gallery and the Tate Gallery of Modern Art. Been looking for a man of mystery? Check out the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Maybe you want to see the changing of the guard, or you may go shopping at Harrods or Harvey Nichols, where Princess Di used to shop. Like music? From symphonies to musicals, you will find something that you enjoy. In this financial and cultural capital, the list of possibilities goes on ad infinitum.

Easy to reach, London has five international airports and a large shipping port. People from diverse ethnic groups make London, giving the city a special energy and special culinary delights.

If London has a weakness, it might be the weather: mild but damp year round. However, nothing will dampen your enthusiasm for the many theatre and other opportunities and activities the city offers. Whatever you do in London and whichever London hotels you choose, your stay is sure to be memorable!
