From time to time all people need a change of scene, a rush of emotions or a getaway from it all. When stress starts to build up, why not take one of the wonderful London theatre breaks available? Since ancient times, theatre has been believed to possess soul-healing qualities and produce the effect of catharsis which means "cleansing" or "purging" on those who visit shows. Whether it is true or not, theatre still remains one of the most fascinating types of performing arts and is a much loved form of entertainment for people around the world. London, with its famous West End, has a great reputation for being a theatrical capital where every theatre fan can find something to their liking.

Every evening the dazzling lights of the West End invite guests to visit one of the city’s best theatres and enjoy the fabulous atmosphere of joy and excitement. With a wide range of both classic and brand new plays to choose from, theatre lovers are sure to make the most of their night at the theatre. Some plays recommended for excellent London theatre breaks are really legendary. For example, The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie is the longest running show in the world. It has been showing at the Ambassadors Theatre and at the St Martin's Theatre since 1952 which makes an impressive 58 years. Amazingly, it is sometimes still difficult to get tickets unless booked in advance!

When looking for electrifying performances, nothing can rival good old musicals - which are a speciality of the West End. The main ingredients of a good musical are uplifting music and lovely songs thoroughly mixed with well-written dialogues and spiced up with sensational dancing and breathtaking emotions. During wonderful London theatre breaks it is possible to visit some truly spectacular musical theatre events. Many of them are already well-known thanks to their film versions, such as Chicago, The Phantom Of The Opera and Mamma Mia! But theatre experts and many fans believe that the live performances are still better.

Instead of loading the children on their grandparents or aunties for the weekend, why not take them on one of the many exciting London theatre breaks? The West End is full of action and surprises for people of all ages. Many children will be happy to come and join the much beloved heroes of popular animation films, for example, the friendly ogre Shrek or the noble Lion King.
