Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the tour?
The complete tour is approximately 3.5 hours long, with at least one comfort break along the way.
There'll be opportunities to rest our legs but it is all on-foot so we advise everyone to prepare for a decent walk!
Will we be able to go to the toilet?
Yes! It's certainly encouraged to go to the toilet before the tour starts but there are lots of places along the way if we need
toilets and refreshments.
What should I wear/bring?
We recommend wearing something comfortable to walk in and study the weather for an appropriate outfit. British weather is notoriously haphazard so umbrellas/rain-protectors are usually recommended but pack hats & suncream if the weather's nice!
Also recommended to bring a bottle of water and you're very welcome to eat along the way.
Will we be seeing inside the theatres?
No - the tour is all outside but we will be seeing lots of nice areas of London including
Leicester Square, Covent Garden and the South Bank.
You'll also be able to admire the theatres' beautiful exteriors. But you generally have to see a show to peek inside most theatres.
Can we take photos/selfies?
Yes! Photos are actively encouraged. Your tour guide will also be happy to sign autographs.
I want to book tickets for a show in London - can you help?
Yes! We're very happy to help sort tickets for you.
London theatre can be very expensive. As experienced theatregoers, we know all the best ways to get great seats for low prices.
Add a message when booking your tickets or e-mail us & we'll do our best to get you the best seats we can
for a show you want to see!
Is this tour suitable for wheelchair-users?
Yes! The tour is entirely step-free.
DOES THE TOUR FINISH WHERE IT STARTS?
We start at the Oscar Wilde statue opposite Charing Cross Station (see Tour Info page for a map) and the West End tour finishes nearby, on The Strand. For the full tour, we finish at Shakespeare's Globe (close to London Bridge & Blackfriars stations.)
There are also a few nice pubs and eating places nearby if you'd prefer to hang around after the tour.
Will we meet any actors?
Yes! Your tour-guide will be a jobbing actor so you'll certainly meet at least one.
Mind you - you never know who else you might bump into walking around central London...
IS THE TOUR IN ENGLISH?
Yes - I'm afraid we only have English-speaking guides at the moment.
Please let us know if you'd like another language - we will do our best to cater for other languages if there's a demand for it.
