1. How Much are The Mousetrap Tickets?

If you’re a fan of Agatha Christie or love a thrilling whodunnit, you don’t want to miss The Mousetrap. The show is the longest-running of any kind in the world and has been gripping theatregoers since 1952. Due to its popularity, tickets can get pricey, especially over the weekends and bank holidays. Tickets start as low as £22.50 and reach highs of over £100. 

There are a few different ways to find cheap tickets for The Mousetrap, with the play sometimes appearing in seasonal sales such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales. Theatre ticketing app, TodayTix, also offers a limited number of Rush tickets daily for £25. The play isn’t always included in discounts, but it’s a good idea to keep an eye out. 

Not sure where to look for discounted The Mousetrap tickets? No worries - we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to making the most of your budget and getting the best affordable tickets below. 

2. When Should I Book Tickets for The Mousetrap?

The play has good availability a few weeks out, however, keep in mind that cheaper-priced tickets sell out earlier. If you’d like to see the production over the weekend or a bank holiday, we recommend booking at least a couple of months in advance to avoid disappointment. 

If you’re flexible with when you can visit, we recommend booking tickets for a weekday performance on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Off-peak performances can sometimes save you up to 40% on some of the best seats in the theatre. 

If you book 12 weeks or more in advance on the official productions website, you can save £25 on tickets for performances on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. This can reduce some of the best seats in the Stalls to under £75.

Whilst you may be able to save money with discounts, it’s good to remember that booking far in advance is not always possible. 

3. How Do I Get Last Minute The Mousetrap Tickets?

If you’re already in London, we recommend heading to Leicester Square and visiting the TKTS booth to cheap for discounted same-day theatre tickets. If you’re not in London, you can also check their online listings for same-day discounts. Or, if you’re nearby to the theatre, you can stop by the box office as they may also discount tickets on the day of a performance. 

Ticketing app, TodayTix, releases a handful of Rush tickets every day of a performance at 10am. If you’re lucky enough to be a ticket or two, you’ll be paying £25 per ticket. The tickets are first-come-first-serve and you may be seated anywhere in the auditorium. We recommend downloading the TodayTix app and signing up for Rush tickets ahead of the day you’re hoping to grab tickets to. 

A limited number of Day Seats are released by the theatre directly every day of a performance. The tickets are released to buy online or in person at 10am and cost £22.50 each. Tickets are limited to 2 per person and are typically in the front row of the Stalls. You can find more information here

The box office sometimes discounts unsold tickets on the day of a performance. At the time of writing, Upper Circle C17 for this afternoons performance cost £22.50, with the same seat the following week costing 55% more!

Tickets aren’t always discounted on the day, especially during the show's peak visiting times, such as weekends and bank holidays. We always recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment, especially if the play is a must-do when visiting London.

TheatreBreaks The Mousetrap Tickets and Hotel

As the theatre is in Central London, there are a range of 3, 4 and 5-star hotels in the local area to suit different budgets. We recommend looking on sites such as Booking.com and Hotels.com to compare prices. 

9. About the The Mousetrap Venue

The Mousetrap is currently playing at St. Martins Theatre which is a short walk from Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations, making it accessible from most places in the city. 

As the theatre is in Central London, there are a range of restaurants and shops in the area, from high-end dining such as The Ivy, to fast food chains and markets nearby - there’s something for everyone. If you’d like a pre-theatre meal, we recommend booking a table in advance to avoid disappointment as the restaurants in the surrounding areas are tourist hot spots and get busy quickly. 

The theatre has three bars which serve alcoholic and soft drinks, as well as sweet and savoury snacks before the show and during the interval. Drinks and light snacks from outside the theatre can be taken into the auditorium, however, the theatre advises audience members to not bring hot food as this is not permitted. 

The doors open 30 minutes before the performance starts. We recommend arriving as soon as the doors open to allow time for queues getting into the venue and at the bars. This will give you time to grab a drink and get to your seat. The show runs for 2 hours and 20 minutes, including a 20-minute interval. We recommend bearing this in mind, especially if you’re planning your journey home.
