The pound isn’t doing us Yanks any favors these days, and even without the brutal exchange rate, London is a pricey city, so discounts count more than ever. Here’s a quick rundown on some of the ways to save on theater tickets in London.
The National Theatre offers a number of ways to avoid paying full price. Children under 18, groups, and seniors are eligible for discounted tickets to performances. And if you’re flexible, you can stop by and try to pick up discounted day-of, standing-room, or standby seats.

The Globe offers a variety of discounts on its tickets, including £10 off top-price tickets to some initial performances, discounts for group bookings, and savings for families. The theater also offers concessions to those under 16. Plus, there are 700 standing-room tickets for each performance available for £5 each.
