London musicals in the West End are getting more expensive and I am not happy about it. Prices have been creeping up slowly and steadily over the years, but the jump has increased lately and it isn’t coming back down. Do you remember a few years ago when people went crazy about the price of Elf tickets? The £240 premium seats made it the most expensive in West End history back in 2015, but now a seat costing £200 on a Friday or a Saturday night is the norm.
It’s been another packed week, with house hunting, Five Guys, the theatre, and even a secret roof terrace on the top of the Houses of Parliament. Technically, I shouldn’t have been up there, but I couldn’t resist the offer to see Westminster from this unique vantage point.
Read on to find out if the view was really as good as it sounds, and to discover my favourite blogs of the week.
