TKTS LONDON

Jump to last reply

Just back from a week in London after a cruise and am here to report some, I'm afraid, big changes in TKTS in Leicester Square in London. For years, I went there on many a morning to pick up half price theatre tickets. However, this past week there were some unpleasant surprises.

Gone are the boards with the shows listed most of which had a 50% discount (some had lesser discounts and a few were full price) as well as the electronic board that listed the acdtual prices. Instead there was a print out listing the shows available and the prices. And most of them no longer had a 50% discount....some had a 25% discount and even less. Fewer shows, at least it seemed to me, were avalable.

As a matter of fact, the whole Leicester Square asrea left something to be desired. Last time I was in London in February, the whole park there wass closed for renovation (as was so much else of London for the Olympics or at least under construction). The park has reopened at Leicester Square and all around the park is this concrete ledge on the outside serving as a seating area. Gone are the benches inside the park that made this a pleasant place to sit. Also not yet re-opned (I don't know if they're going to be) are the public loos that while not the cleanest in the world were at least usable for somebody in distress or with certain problems caused b y old age.

The whole area just not the same!
