Thinking of going to Wicked and Billy Elliot
Welcome to our first research blog in helping to plan your visit to a West End Show
What Laura and I plan to do is build up a hub of information so if you are planning your first visit to a show or just want some general information n help with booking we will be able to help you.
Our first blog covers Wicked and Billy Elliot.
Both theatres are located next to Victoria main line and tube station.
The station is also accessible for Victoria Coach station, Bus Station and numerous taxi ranks around the theatres.
The station itself holds a number of options for any theatre goer looking to get a bite to eat before the show.
If your looking to have a sit down meal we recommend a visit to the newly refurbished food level on floor 2 of the station.
Some of the best places include
Frankie n bennys
Fresh pizza co and also Tortilla
There is full access to this level by lift for both pushchair and wheelchairs from the entrance at the back of the station at Victoria place.
Level 1 in Victoria Place also has Leon's and Pret for more sit down food choices.
There is also a number of quick stop options across the station including McDonald's, Burger King and Kfc or if you want to pick up snack food there is a sainsburys and boots as well.
If you need any cash before heading to the shows there are cash points next to Patisserie Valerie next to platforms 1-7.
There is also a Currency Exchange and Western Union situated by the tube exit and also platforms 1-7.
Moving on to the theatres
We've both visited Wicked and both agree for a first time visit you should book for the stalls first. You get an incredible view anywhere in the theatre but there is something magical about looking up at the stage for your first time.
For Billy Elliot we will add to this when we have been to visit the show which will be very soon
Thanks for reading so far this blog will be updated more when we have been to Billy Elliot
