London’s West End

Located in the heart of London’s Theatreland (aka the West End), the Lyceum is a stone’s throw from other iconic institutions such as the Novello Theatre, Aldwych Theatre, and Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. But if musical theater isn’t your thing, don’t worry—the London Transport Museum, the London Film Museum, and Somerset House are also close by, providing plenty for you to do while your party’s musical fans get their fill of fabulousness.
