Based on the acclaimed novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse is the story of Joey, a Devonshire horse caught in the crossfire of World War I, and his former owner Albert’s quest to find him. Through Joey’s eyes, the true nature of war is revealed, from the terror of battle to touching moments of sacrifice and heroism.
With a story by a former children’s laureate and a production by the internationally renowned National Theatre, the magic of one of the greatest and recent plays in the West End can be enjoyed as one of our theatre breaks.
A multi award-winning production, War Horse is a magnificent theatre adaptation which truly supersedes both the book and film.
With such beautifully executed puppetry, you'll soon believe the horses to be real as they breathe, gallop and engage with the characters in this moving story of war, love and loss.
War Horse is a hugely popular West End show with audiences of all ages. In fact, last year alone TicketTree sold over 2,000 tickets.
And now, not only are you in control of the show you see and the hotel you retire to, but you can also choose exactly where you sit. A tailor made theatre break indeed!
