Booking a theatre break

Why book with Hotel Direct?

Hotel Direct was established in 1997. In 2010 we launched our theatre breaks service and in 2016 we partnered with all the UK's main train operating companies to offer London theatre breaks by rail from anywhere in the UK. We've obtained special package concessions from the train companies so booking your show, hotel and rail tickets together means that you get up to 50% off the train fares. What's more we're also able to offer up to 15% off our already discounted hotel prices when you book a package. With Hotel Direct you also get the reassurance that you're booking with a trusted UK company with a customer review score of 4.9 out of 5 on Trustpilot and a 5-star Google review rating. We're a British company and all our employees are in the UK so booking with us, you're putting a little bit back into the UK economy.

Travel from anywhere in the UK

Gone are the olds days of fixed travel days and set departure points. With our dynamic theatre breaks by rail you can travel when you want from wherever you want. Dynamic packages allow you to combine any rail travel available on the UK mainland network, with any London show and any one of hundreds of central London hotels. Discounts for packages will be included with savings off your rail fares and hotel plus the best possible prices on your theatre tickets.

We love theatre and trains!

There's no better way to arrive in the capital than by rail. Only a train can deliver you to the heart of the city via any one of 10 gateway train stations. Only on a train can you work, eat, move about, read and write, stream movies and music or just chat across a table to a friend or fellow traveller. It is the most civilised and relaxed way to travel to London. And we love theatre. Every employee of Hotel Direct has been to London shows and can guide your choice of show with personal insight and a real passion for the theatre.

Choose where you'll sit - in the train and theatre

With Hotel Direct you can choose whether you sit at a window, facing or with your back to the direction of travel, in a quiet or normal coach. You can choose to upgrade to First Class. For theatre we have unique interactive seating plans of all West End theatres. You'll be able to choose exactly where you are sitting and compare prices and ratings of all available seats.

It's cheaper to book your rail tickets within a theatre break

Booking a break means that we can offer special offer rates that are only available for packages. With a theatre break by rail you have the opportunity of getting extra discounts off the rail fares and hotel prices. In fact up to 50% off the price of the train tickets and up to an extra 15% off the price of your hotel booking. So if you're travelling to London by train to see a show, book a Theatre Break by rail and save a small fortune.
