About the show

The Woman in Black is the 2nd longest running play in West End history for a reason. It is a terrifying ghost story filled with twists and thrills and what can only be described as a chilling atmosphere. .

The play within a play follows Arthur Kipps, a solicitor called to set in order the affairs of a recently deceased widow, as he arrives at a rural village and begins to investigate the mysteries of his assigned case. The show is acted superbly by two cast members onstage, with the help of a handful more behind the scenes to create the most adrenaline-charged experiences in the West End.

What to expect from The Woman in Black

With a Woman in Black theatre break, you are to expect jumps, screams and fear at the delightfully intimate Fortune Theatre, the show’s home for 24 years. A foggy, eerie atmosphere will greet you as the curtain lifts and you are transported back in time to a disserted Victorian theatre, from where the mesmerizing actors will pull you into the mysterious affairs of the Eel Marsh House. Be prepared to be scared!

Once you have left this spine-tingling show you will be longing for comfort and safety. Luckily our theatre breaks allow you to book exceptional hotels in the heart of London, meaning that you will be in walking distance of not just safety and comfort, but style and luxury too. Booking a Woman in Black theatre break gives you excitement, indulgence and great value.

Tips for booking a cheap The Woman in Black Break

Cheap theatre breaks are to be had in the Upper Circle, though careful of cramped legroom in some seats and a safety rail that can affect the front row. Taller theatregoers may want to give us a call – boxes at The Woman in Black are often good for budget theatre trips as sightlines aren’t as good as the Stalls.
