Despite its pedigree and high regard among theatre enthusiasts, the West End has very reasonable ticket prices. The average price of a West End in 2016 was £49.28. While that was an increase from the previous year, it is still far below the average for shows in many other international cities, including Broadway in New York. For those on a tight budget, tickets to some shows can be had for as low at £15. Premium seats may go for about £100, and special events may cost slightly more, but the prices are overall very affordable.
