Matilda the Musical has been spectacular since it first opened to packed audiences at the Cambridge Theatre, London. This adaptation from the popular children’s book by Roald Dahl, continues to be a favourite to theatre goers of all ages. We found a great one or two nights London accommodation at your selected hotel and admission ticket from £95.

The coming of age story is a timeless classic where you can expect lots of adventures in the savannah, elaborate costumes and lots of music and dancing. But beware as it is recommended for ages 6 and above (and the Lyceum theatre will not let kid under 3 enter).
