After months of speculation and excitement, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child: Parts 1 and 2 will premiere in London tomorrow (June 7th) at the Palace Theatre.
The story will represent the eighth Harry Potter adventure and follows on from the Deathly Hallows series. It was created by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany and centres on a middle-aged Harry and his son Albus as he begins life at Hogwarts.
Jamie Parker will play Harry, while Noma Dumezweni will be Hermione and Paul Thornley stars as Ron. Those lucky enough to have got tickets will certainly be excited, but others could still be lucky thanks to the daily ticket lottery. Fresh tickets will also go on sale at 1pm each Friday, with 20 tickets available for every performance the following week.
As the play is split into two parts, you can try to get tickets for two showings in the same day or instead opt for an overnight stay in London and enjoy the many delights the capital has to offer.
What is the best way to get to London?
There are many ways for travellers get to London, but one of the most efficient options to reach the capital is to travel by bus. With so much traffic and congestion across the city, driving can be a very frustrating experience, which is why travelling by bus may be the best option.
As well as reducing the stress of travelling, buses give tourists ample time to plan their time around the capital. There is so much for visitors to explore across the city that it can be difficult to do everything, so it is important to spread activities out and make the most of your trip.
Coaches leave throughout the day, giving travellers flexibility over how long they want their trip to be. Whether you want a day out or a long weekend, there are plenty of options.
Could you fit in a visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour?
The Harry Potter Studio Tour is one of the top destinations for fans of the franchise and continues to be one of the most popular attractions in the whole of England. Visitors can see some of the most iconic props, sets and costumes from the films and gain a truly unforgettable insight into how the movies were made.
Situated adjacent to where the productions were made, the museum is sure to be a dream come true for fans. Many of the biggest names from Harry Potter came to the facility to record their memories and help reassemble sets, making it a fantastic throwback to the magic of the series.
If you decide to stay in the capital for a few days, you could travel via coach and save yourself the hassle of dealing with the capital’s congested train platforms. The attraction is based in Leavensden, Watford, around 30 miles from London.
