Train tickets and Theatre tickets: how far in advance to book?

Jump to last reply

Train tickets. We’ll be in London the first week of July and plan on getting Travel Cards from a rail station once we’re in the city to use for several of the 2-4-1 offers. We also need two other sets of train tickets. We’ll be going to Harry Potter Warner studio tour for a day (close to booking which day) so we need round trip tickets for that -- 5 tickets -- 2 seniors, 2 adults, and 1 child. We, husband and I, also need tickets to York, then three days after that, tickets to Edinburgh. Should we book both point to point tickets, York then Edinburgh, as soon as possible for lowest fares? And when should we book the round trips tickets to HPST? Should we wait until we arrive in London and get them at the same time as we get the travel cards?

Theatre tickets. We’re thinking about seeing the long running “Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie, at St Martin’s Theatre, or “As You Like It” at the Globe Theatre. How far in advance should those tickets be bought? We’re still deciding between the two, and not sure we have time for both of them. I know they are completely different, but any thoughts on which to choose? Thanks.
