1. How Much are Les Miserables Tickets?

The Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical that has been wowing London audiences since its opening in 1985 is a must-see for any fans of theatre. Having performed to over 130 million people worldwide, the show is incredibly popular. Due to this, ticket prices can become expensive, reaching highs of over £195. Tickets do start as low as £10 and the musical is sometimes featured in seasonal discounts such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales. 

Les Miserables isn’t always discounted, so it's important to find the best seats within your budget. 

If you’re not sure where to find discounts or the best prices for tickets, don’t worry. We’ve put together a complete guide to making the most of your budget and getting affordable tickets to Les Miserables below. 

2. When Should I Book Tickets for Les Miserables?

The musical usually has good availability a few weeks out, however, we recommend booking further in advance if you’re hoping to visit the production during one of its peak periods, such as weekends or bank holidays. Cheaper-priced tickets also sell out earlier, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead to avoid disappointment. 

Booking off-peak performances on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday is the best way to save money on tickets if you’re flexible with when you can go. We recommend booking mid-week shows as you can save up to 75% on the same seats. 

It might not always be possible to book in advance for offers on Les Miserables, however, the production may be included in seasonal promotions such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales - so we advise keeping your eyes out! 

3. How Do I Get Last Minute Les Miserables Tickets?

On the lookout for last-minute Les Miserables tickets? If you’re already in London, head to the TKTS booth in Leicester Square where you’ll find all of the same-day ticket discounts. If you’re not in London, no worries - you can check out their online listings

It’s also a good idea to pop down to the box office before the performance as sometimes unsold tickets on the day of the show can be discounted by the theatre. Tickets online sometimes also drop in price - at the time of writing, Stalls T18 for tonight's performance is priced at £47.50. The same seat a week later is £69.50. This is a saving of 46%!

Tickets to Les Miserables in London at the Sondheim Theatre on Tuesday 23rd April 2024. Stalls T18 priced at £47.50

Tickets to Les Miserables in London at the Sondheim Theatre on Tuesday 30th April 2024. Stalls T18 priced at £69.50

It’s good to bear in mind that this doesn’t always happen, especially during weekends and bank holidays. So, if you’re planning on visiting during one of the theatre's peak times, we recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment on the day. 

4. Where Should I Sit at Les Miserables?

Knowing where to sit when going to the theatre can be one of the hardest parts of booking tickets. Everyone wants to make sure they’re able to see all of the action on stage, including the actors, actresses and the sets. We’ve picked the top 5 seats at the Sondheim Theatre for under £60 to help you find the best seat within your budget. 

Insider Tip: Check SeatPlan’s Sondheim Theatre seating plan when you book. Theatregoers have added their photos of the stage and ratings for seats across the auditorium to help you book.

5. How To Get Cheap Les Miserables Matinee Tickets

Les Miserables has two matinees per week, the first on Thursday and the second on Saturday. Both afternoon performances start at 2.30pm. 

We recommend booking tickets to a Thursday matinee as sometimes these tickets can be cheaper than a Saturday afternoon. At the time of writing Stalls G13 for a Thursday matinee in May is currently £150. The same seat for the Saturday matinee a couple of days later is £200. That’s a saving of 33%!

9. About the Les Miserables Venue

Les Miserables is currently playing at the Sondheim Theatre, which is just a short walk from Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square tube stations. This makes the theatre accessible from most places in the city. 

Nearby there is a range of eateries from fine-dining restaurants to fast-food chains, or head down to Chinatown for some culture and food. We recommend booking a table at a restaurant if you’d like a pre-theatre meal, as the area is a tourist hotspot and restaurants can get busy very quickly. 

Four bars throughout the theatre serve alcoholic and soft drinks, as well as sweet and savoury snacks. The theatre recommends not bringing food and drink purchased from outside into the auditorium, however, they may allow bottles of water.

Doors open 90 minutes before the performance starts to give theatregoers time to allow for queues, grab a drink or snack and get to their seats. The running time of Les Miserables is 2 hours and 50 minutes including a 15-minute interval. We recommend bearing this in mind, especially when planning travel after the show.
