Near this place you can find street performers, casinos, clubs, pubs, restaurants, theatres, Is always a crowded area and very interesting at night. Near you can find M&M's World. Good for a walk in the streets nearby with high level stores of great brands.

If you are foreign, you have to go here, it essentially what Britain is all about, good food, whacky people, great location and some off the wall characters. I love it.
