I've been watching TKTS but haven't seen any for Les Mis. Are there other sites that sell discount tickets this far out for a show in mid-May? Our first preference is May 15 as we'll be taking the train down from Edinburgh, arriving early afternoon and thought a short walk, dinner and the play would be enough for the day.
Les Mis is my favourite show and I want good seats as my husband has only seen the movie and the play was so much better! We both love the music. If that means paying full price, then that's what we'll do, but any savings can be put towards other things as well.
The other question I have is about the 2-4-1. Our hotel is near St. Pancras and we want to head out to most of the more familiar tourist spots. Have any of you done the Original Tour hop-on hop-off bus? Is it worth it or is it better to take public transportation around? What National Rail tickets would be the best to get for 3 days. I saw that they'd have to be individual days as the weekly pass doesn't count for the 2-4-1, but that could be outdated.
Over our days in London, we're looking at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Sky Garden, a look at Buckingham Palace but not at the Changing of the Guards, a Thames tour, Harrod's Food Court for a look around (if time) and hopefully, a trip to Canterbury.
I haven't worked out what's in the same area yet, but is the above even doable in 4 days?
