The New London Theatre is probably best known as the home of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats and even more recently as that of the National Theatre’s production of War Horse. The theatre is a short walk from the famous Covent Garden market and piazza, the Royal Opera House and a variety of shops, restaurants and cafés.
