London on Stage: Overview
London on Stage - Tour Map
I like the spirit of this great London which I feel around me. Who but a coward would pass his whole life in hamlets; and for ever abandon his faculties to the eating rust of obscurity?
— Charlotte Brontë
We invite you to join us for the 2021 edition of London on Stage. We’re industriously working on one-of-a-kind, memorable events calculated to delight, astonish, and enlighten. We can’t wait to share them with you and hope to see you in March!
Know Before You Go:
Filled with one-of-a-kind visits and many sites barred to the general public, this trip will leave you happily exhausted. It includes long days exploring London and Oxford as a group and late nights of theatre performances, and the pace is brisk. We average 7 miles of walking and 200 stairs per day. Travel is by public transportation (included in the price of the trip), and participants should be able to board Tube trains and buses independently. The group comes first, so participants who wish to travel by taxi (not recommended) must make their own independent arrangements and expect to pay about $600 extra.
London on Stage is considered Level Two out of three physical ability levels Go Learn journeys can reach. For more information regarding physical ability levels click
Go Learn Activity Levels
Traveling in a group is enriching and fun. It also requires consideration for everyone’s well-being and for reaching our daily goals in activities set by the itinerary. Before we head on our journey we like to ask our participants to consider the activity level each journey has and if it is something they feel able to do. The group’s interest in accomplishing our itinerary is the priority for trip leaders and we understand and respect this promise to all. Due to differences in country-specific laws and regulations, many sites visited are not handicap accessible. Go Learn staff can talk to participants in person for assessment and to answer questions.
At this level of a tour, trip participants will actively participate in up to three hours of activities. We may walk and stand for large portions of the lectures or excursions. Extensive breaks and adequate time to relax makes this our lowest activity level. Like all Go Learn journeys, active listening and participation is fundamental to learning and exploration.
Level 2 requires a good amount of stamina in walking and standing. In the course of a day one can expect to reach and exceed 5 miles of walking, multiple stairs, and prolonged periods of standing. We will take breaks and a certain standard of comfort will be maintained. The journey might have a hotel in one location, avoiding extensive travel, but public transportation and exploring on foot may be the main form of transportation. Happy exhaustion is part of this activity level.
Extensive excursions and challenging terrain will be encountered at this level. A day with a number of hours on foot is the norm. At this activity level, we may embark on hikes, physically strenuous site visits, and distances reaching and exceeding 10 miles per day. Go Learn will always incorporate breaks, sometimes a day off, but this level is as strenuous as it is fun.
Tour Highlights Include:
6-7 brilliant, thought-provoking plays at the epicenter of great performances: the Royal National, West End, and off-West End theatres.
