Half-Price theatre tickets in London

I've read about the half-price ticket booth in Leister Square. Should I go in the morning or just before curtain time to get the best seats?

Try to check for what time they open. I seem to recall that the reduced price tickets are only available after a certain time in the afternoon.

eeyan: sorry, but socialworker is 100% wrong. The TKTS 1/2 price ticket booth offers discount tickets all day long.

You can get good tickets at any time - but I normally avoid going right at opening time because that is the only time you are guaranteed to face a long-ish queue. For some reason a lot of folks think they have to get there early to get the best seats - not so. Go whenever a stop at Leicester Square best fits into your day's schedule.

Call the box office directly on the day you want the tickets- don't even bother with TKTS- you'll get the best discount and options that way.

To janis-thanks for correcting my inaccurate memory. We were last in the UK in '98 and as I said I thought I remembered them only offering the half price in the afternoon closer to show time. It is useful info for me to know that is not the case.
