1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Ticket Prices

Packed full of magic and dazzling special effects, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is real event theatre. Comprising two parts, which you can see on the same day or on different days, experiencing this show is always going to be more expensive than most others in London.

Ticket prices for each part currently start at £15 and rise to over £190 at peak periods. If you see both parts expect to pay £30 per person at an absolute minimum. Cheaper tickets also sell out well in advance.

Discounts are not regularly available for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but the show is included in some seasonal sales. We've also found all the best cheap seats and ticket schemes, so keep reading for our complete guide to saving money when you visit this magical show.

2. Looking for Harry Potter Studio Tour or Wizarding World Tickets?

This guide is for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London's West End, but if you're looking for tickets to one of the many other Harry Potter attractions worldwide, visit the official Wizarding World website.

If you want to visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour just outside London, official tickets are available on the Harry Potter Studio Tour website. There are also some ticket packages available including Virgin Experiences' Harry Potter Studio Tour with transport from central London and Wowcher's London Hotel Stay and Harry Potter Tour.

3. When to Book Tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child remains very popular and seats under £50 sell out weeks in advance, so book at least six weeks in advance for best availability. Some returns or cheaper tickets may become available last minute, but for a play this long and in two parts it's best to book in early.

You can also save some money by booking for an off-peak performance. Peak periods include weekends and school holidays, and these are more expensive.

One of the best ways to get cheap Harry Potter theatre tickets is during a West End seasonal promotion such as the Official London Theatre New Year Sale, Kids Week or London Theatre Week. Lots of top West End shows have exclusive prices that you won't find at any other time of year.

4. Last Minute Harry Potter Tickets & Harry Potter Theatre Lottery

The Harry Potter Friday Forty lottery offers 40 tickets at £40 for the following week of performances. These seats are spread across the auditorium, and you can book for Part One and Part Two. The price works out at £20 per part. Enter between midnight Monday and 1pm Friday each week on the TodayTix app.

Insider Tip: Other last minute Harry Potter theatre tickets are harder to come by, as the show often has very limited same-day availability. Keep an eye on the website or visit the theatre in person - you might be able to snag a return or reduced unsold ticket at box office discretion, but this isn't guaranteed!

5. What Are the Best Harry Potter Play Seats?

The Palace Theatre has some restricted views at the back and sides of each section, so the best seats for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are in the middle of the Stalls and front of the Dress Circle. These are ideal for witnessing the magical spectacle and special effects of the play.

Although many cheaper seats come with restrictions, there are some great value for money options. As this is a big investment with over 4 hours sitting in the theatre, check SeatPlan's Palace Theatre seating plan when you book, to see what the view from your seat is like.

Best Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets under £100: You will inevitably spend more on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child than other plays because there are two parts, but there are cheaper seats in the Balcony. Many of these are restricted view and don't offer as spectacular an experience as more expensive tickets, but are worth looking at if you have a strict budget.

Please note that our suggestions are for seats which cost £100 or less for both parts together - tickets for Part One or Two individually would cost up to £50 each from these same seats.

1. Balcony A8 (from £50, or £25 per part) is restricted view with a safety rail in place, but the stage is mainly clear.

2. Balcony E4 (from £50, or £25 per part) is also restricted view and to the side, but the stage is mainly clear and there is extra legroom in front.

3. If you can tip the cost for Parts One and Two to just over £100 per person, seats such as Grand Circle A22 (from £110, or £55 per part) are well reviewed and offer a great overview of the stage.

6. Harry Potter Cheap Matinee Tickets

Matinees for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are not scheduled in the same way as other West End shows, because the story is told in two parts. Part One of the show is usually in the afternoon matinee slot on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 1pm, whilst Part Two is usually in the evening slot Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 6pm.

You can watch Parts One and Two on the same day or on different days; if you book both for the same day, you will sit in the same seat each time.

This schedule means that Harry Potter play matinees are not cheaper than evening performances. However, some tickets on weekdays will be cheaper (and have more availability) than tickets on the weekend. If you choose to attend on a weekday, train and hotel prices will also be cheaper.

Insider Tip: If you choose to watch both parts in one day, you will have about 90 minutes between the matinee and evening performances. It might be easier to have a sit-down lunch before Part One and a quick takeaway option at dinnertime.

7. Group Discounts for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has a group rate for 10+ people. £75/65 tickets are reduced to £49.50 per part on Wednesdays, off-peak only.

School groups can get Grand Circle tickets for £20 on off-peak Wednesday and Friday performances, with one free teacher ticket for every 10 student tickets purchased.

9. About the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Venue

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is playing at the Palace Theatre in central London, at the intersection of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue. Fans of the Wizarding World will find plenty to do in the area before or between shows - there are lots of quirky shops down narrow streets, with many claiming to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley.

Hot food and drink can't be taken into the Palace Theatre, but a plastic drinks bottle and small snacks such as sweet should be okay. Make sure you have a firm budget for drinks and merchandise as well - these are unsurprisingly expensive!

The Palace Theatre may be unable to store large luggage, so check out Stasher locations nearby.

Insider Tip: There are several Harry Potter-themed walking tours in London, including a free Harry Potter Walking Tour which starts at the Palace Theatre.
