Cheap London theatre tickets are not difficult to find, it’s just a case of shopping around to make sure that you get the best possible deal.
You can buy a wide range of London theatre tickets from either online or physical ticket retailers, however, if you would like to reserve tickets for a specific show or date, or you have a seat that you would prefer to buy, it is advisable that you buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Perhaps the best place to start looking for London theatre tickets is on the internet. You can visit a number of sites to buy London theatre tickets – for example, many theatres will have their own websites, allowing you to buy tickets directly from them.
Alternatively, you may also be able to find Cheap London theatre tickets on auction websites; many people will buy London theatre tickets and then find that they cannot use them i.e.. they may have double booked an evening event. In cases like this, the original buyer will usually be more than happy to take less money for the tickets than they originally paid in order to make some of their money back.

A number of online London theatre ticket dealer sites are also available, however, if you choose to use one of these sites, you should always verify that the company you are using is legit – there are a lot of fake tickets out there, and you don’t want to end up paying out a lot of money for a London theatre ticket that you cannot use. Always check the credentials of ticket dealer websites before you make a purchase – if you are in doubt, ring the theatre in question to check that you are buying the ‘real deal’.
You may also spot advertisements for London theatre tickets in newspapers, magazines or in leaflets – sometimes the theatre will advertise tickets for shows themselves and at other times, ticket dealers will place an advert. Again, if you opt for this method, always check that the company is established before you make a purchase. Alternatively, you may wish to buy the tickets directly from the theatre by visiting the location of the show/play that you would like to see.
