London, Especially Theatre

Jump to last reply

- Theatre, Vegetarian-friendly Restaurants, Museums, Bloomsbury & Hotel Suggestions Wanted -

I am planning a two week trip to London at the end of March. Short notice, I know.

We have flights and the first 3 nights of our hotel booked at the Marriott by the Thames due to a short overlap visit with family. We may be visiting a friend in Falmouth during part of our stay, which is why I have delayed in securing remaining accommodations in London.

I would like to focus on museums & theatre, and will return to the Tate and National Gallery. Any other museums to suggest?

As for theatre, I'd like to see as much as possible. I'm looking at: "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime", "Nell Gwynn", "The Maids", and "The Kinks: Sunny Afternoon" (husband's request). Some others I jotted down: "The Play That Goes Wrong", "People Places Things". I also love Shakespeare and would love to see "Cymbeline" and/or "The Tempest". I've seen most of the major productions in San Francisco, except Matilda & Billy Elliott. Comments, if any one has seen any of these in London? How is the tour of the Globe theatre?

As for restaurant recommendations, I'm a vegetarian and my husband is a carnivore, which is problematic and limits my enjoyment of many restaurants and pubs. I love Indian, and we will make a repeat visit to the Bombay Brasserie, and The Ivy, for Sticky Toffee Pudding. (We saw Oprah there.) Pre & post theatre recommendations are especially welcome.

I studied the Bloomsbury group, and would like to explore that neighborhood more. Any suggestions about where to go, what to look for there?

Last visit we stayed at 22 Jermyn St., a small hotel no longer in business, but we loved the location (near Piccadilly Circus). Our event is at the Royal Academy of Art, and we would like to walk to the theater. We are OK with a pricier hotel for this trip.I personally like a historical hotel, and my husband must have wifi above all else. Any recommendations for hotels?

We love to walk, explore, and find odd little places. Since we need to stay flexible, we're not making a tight itinerary, but would like to research the possibilities.

Thank you for any suggestions!
