Book a room
At The Arch London we know how important it is to get away from it all and treat yourself to something special.
If you could do with a theatre break in London, our boutique hotel has everything you need and more, starting with an exceptional location only 5 minutes’ walk from Marble Arch and within walking distance of the West End’s top entertainment venues. We also know that choosing which theatre play to watch can be time consuming, so we have summarised the plot of the West End’s longest-running and bestselling shows in short and sweet tweet-style descriptions.
1. The Mousetrap, St Martin’s Theatre
An army man, two hoteliers, three freaks, and a grumpy lady try to discover the murderer among them. Everyone’s idea of a lovely evening!

Only love can save a disfigured genius who lives underground. The ultimate Beauty and the Beast story and a must for die-hard romantics!

Lawyer Arthur Kipps is intrigued by a woman in black and discovers that snooping is not a good idea, especially not in a haunted house

Where To Stay
We can guarantee something: the only problem you’ll have during your London theatre break is deciding which West End show you want to see. There are many other options in addition to these shows, ranging from drama to comedy and including everything in between. Matilda, Kinky Boots, Beautiful, The Book of Mormon, and Motown are other best-selling West End performances that you won’t want to miss.
UPDATE, November 2017: The new pop-up Marble Arch Theatre is another great option and just 5 minutes walk from the hotel, currently showing Five Guys Named Moe.
