Good deals and speedy service

I`d been looking for a London hotel room, and had searched a number of hotel booking sites without finding one that met my needs at a reasonable price. I tried Hotel Direct for their Hotel + Rail deal (I was travelling by rail anyway, would normally buy tickets separately. I quickly found a good hotel, in a convenient location, at a better price than the other websites - and that price included the return ticket too, so even better value. The tickets arrived very quickly by first class post. Will definitely use again!

First time I have used Hotel Direct

First time I have used Hotel Direct. And found them to be extremely friendly polite and helpful with booking! Not to mention quick to send all tickets and commerce. Will certainly use them again as they were great value for money and took the hassle out of booking everything. Highly recommended!

Booking a theatre break

Why book with Hotel Direct?

Our company was established 21 years ago and we've been promoting theatre breaks since 2010. Today we offer every show in the West End of London and 100s of London hotels. In the past theatre packages were inflexible. People were typically offered a small selection of shows and 1 or 2 hotel options. Today our website and 7-day telephone service gives you the opportunity to combine any London show with any of our hotels. And from this year you have the opportunity to add rail travel from anywhere in mainland UK. You have complete control and choice right down to the theatre seats you'll be sitting in and the room type you'll be staying in. What's more, when you book your theatre and train tickets together with your hotel, you'll save money. Up to 50% off the rail tickets and an extra 15% off the hotel. With Hotel Direct you can also be confident of first class service from our UK customer centre with its 5-star rating on TrustPilot.

We love musical theatre

We've booked shows for hundreds of thousands of people. All our staff have been to West End shows - it's compulsory! They also love it. One member of our team has seen Wicked 9 times. She plans more trips. We run a global social media forum called Theatre Talk. To celebrate our 20 years in the travel trade in 2017 we went on... you guessed it, a staff theatre break. If you too love theatre or simply want a show to be part of your next London break, speak to people who have a real passion for West End theatre.

Full choice of shows and hotels

With Hotel Direct you can choose any London show and combine it with any of our hundreds of London hotels including our Hidden Gems. There isn't a West End performance that we don't offer. From long running classics like Lion King and Phantom of the Opera to newer hits like Motown the Musical and Beautiful - the Carole King Musical. And we specialise in great West End and central London hotels; perfect places to stay for your theatre break. Having selected a show, we'll show you the hotels which sell best with that show and we'll tell you the distance from each hotel to the theatre. We're here 7 days a week on 0800 633 8000 if you want to speak to an expert about your choice of show or hotel or if you just prefer to book over the telephone.

You'll save more booking your theatre tickets and hotel together

When you book your hotel and theatre tickets as part of a package Hotel Direct is able to pass on special discounts from the hotel companies. These special package concessions are only available when you book an all-in break. You can save up to an extra 15% off the hotel cost when you book a hotel as part of a theatre break. Of course you'll also save time and effort.

Theatre breaks by rail

Add train tickets to your theatre break for amazing discounts off the ticket prices. Booking rail as part of a theatre break can save you up to 50% off the rail tickets. So if like most people you're travelling to London on the train, make sure you book your rail within your theatre break. You can travel from any origin station in mainland UK.

Selecting your seat

We believe that it is very important that you know exactly what you are booking. We're very proud of our seating plans which we've created for all West End theatres; no mean feat when you consider there are up to 2,000 seats in each theatre. We've mapped every theatre seat in London so that you can choose and see exactly where you will be sitting in the show of your choice. And every seat is graded so that you have a good idea of the quality of the stage view.

Customer reviews

Hotel Direct pioneered audience reviews of London theatre. We've been inviting everyone who has booked a theatre break with us to submit a show review since 2010 so today we have thousands of reviews on individual shows. Probably the deepest resource of audience reviews on the internet. This gives you real insight into any show and is a wonderful tool in helping you select your ideal theatre break.
