Seeing Both Parts of Harry Potter in One Day in London

England, London Guide (B): Seeing Both Parts of Harry Potter in One Day in London

Sometimes we travel to see iconic landmarks or famous museums. It’s good to balance it by traveling to see something a little different, like a play. London is obviously a dream destination for any Harry Potter fan. With themed tours and filming locations, you can immerse yourself in all the magic that inspired the books and was featured in the movies. One of the most exciting ways to bask in all the magic of Harry Potter in London is to see the 8th installment of the series on stage.

Playing at the Palace Theatre, the entirety of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is two full-length parts. Tickets can be bought for single parts or together, for parts that are on consecutive nights or on the same day, with the first part being a matinee and the second part showing in the evening. I highly recommend you buy tickets far in advance to ensure you get tickets together in the price range of your choice. The good thing is that on the London stage, there are tickets at many price levels. So even if you don’t have a great front row view, you can see the play for as little as £15 or £20. So why is it better to do both on the same day and not on consecutive nights? Obviously your opinion on this might differ. But if you’re visiting London for only a limited time like we were, it’s kind of a waste to spend two whole nights on the play when you could instead be enjoying a nice dinner or a few pints at a bar with the after-work crowd. That being said, you’ll be in the heart of the city when you get out of the play, so you’ll be in the perfect place to check out the surrounding nightlife. ......
