For ages, the people of London have tried quality life in their playwrights, poems and books or through theatrical performances. Theatrical performances have also shown their creativity and also depicted their glorious culture and history. However, the theatres were not the product of the English. They have existed since the time of ancient Egypt. In England, the concept of theatre developed in medieval times under the Romans. Since then, theatres in England have undergone great changes. Today the theatre is mainly dominated by realism and classical English drama.

In London, you can have the chance to attend various theatrical performances based on political or spiritual philosophies. The majority of London’s theatres are located in and around “theatre land”, that is, Shaftesbury Avenue, the Strand and the nearby streets of the West End. Most of these theatres are receiving houses and present mainly dramatic plays produced by the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. They don’t have their own theatrical production.

Some of the popular theatres in the West End include:
