Theatrical education & tourism London Theatre Academy

Why London Theatre Academy?

We know theatre, we know travel

We know their potential to inspire and educate and we’ve seen how they develop personalities and bring people together. Our years of experience in theatre, education, and tourism give us unique insight into the demands of our customers and how best to meet those needs. This experience also means we are able to work with the very best of British theatre while providing high-quality tourism opportunities.

A tour to suit your needs

We understand that each group is different and we know how important it is to get exactly the right experience from your tour. As an independent tour operator we are able to offer the personal and detailed service that you deserve. In addition to our basic package, we offer the opportunity to tailor your tour to suit your group’s needs: choose from a range of exciting and affordable full and half-day excursions and workshops. For the most specific requirements, we can work with you to build a customized tour ideally suited to your group – and your budget.

Why London Theatre Academy

Free adult places

We know how important it is to have a properly supervised trip, that’s why we offer a free adult place for every 8 places booked or, alternatively, use the places as credit towards optional activities or other London Theatre Academy products.

Dedicated Tour Directors

We provide you with the full-time services of an actor or theatre practitioner as your Tour Director to manage your tour from start to finish and ensure that you and your group are free to immerse yourselves in the experience.

Having an industry professional lead your trip ensures that their passion for theatre is shared with the group, and can open doors that would be left closed to conventional groups.

Why take an educational tour?

Foreign travel and all that it involves – meeting new people, living in different cultures, experiencing different sights, tastes and sounds – is an education in itself. When it is combined with a comprehensive program of activities designed to challenge, entertain and inform, the possibilities are infinite. Students who have been allowed the freedom to learn for themselves and expand their horizons take their new skills back into the classroom and reap the rewards. Educational tourism is internationally recognised as a way of enhancing both academic and professional potential, and is factored into selection processes by Universities and employers. And of course, it’s also really good fun!
