The best time to visit this district is absolutely in the evening. Just walking around makes you feel special. Lights, music and the big boards. Like a small hollywood scene!

I went here with my boyfriend to see my friend in The Commitments and thoroughly enjoyed the production, it was funny, lighthearted & well worth the money. We found a hotel nearby for 50 & used the Tube so it wasn't an overly expensive night. I'll be going back.

Best show ever. Of all the many shows we have seen this is the best. Very powerful images on the stages enhanced by very powerful performances by the cast.

If you don't go to the sanctioned half-price ticket kiosk in Leicester Square, you can purchase directly from the box office of the show you want, either in person or online. BEWARE of the Telegraph Box Office (of the UK newspaper). I was just ripped off for a £25 pound "booking fee" per ticket!

We have been to London half a dozen times now, each time attending a different theatre to watch a show. Covent Garden is well worth exploring and so is the shopping around it.

This is the UK version of Broadway. The whole area buzzes. Theatre tickets are not cheap but a visit to this area for a show, a few drinks and a meal makes for a great day or evening out.

This is the hub of theatre in the country. If you have the money to finance your visit, it certainly has something to offer everyone. It is however expensive in the extreme and a night at the theatre will set you back quite an amount of money, not least the price of tickets but factor in parking (if you drive),... More

Whilst located on busier roads that connect the outring of city with its commercial district, it manages to hold sense of personality- giant posters, neon lights, theatre after theatre, opera after opera, and world-recognised titles. Would have been lovely if not the disorientating crowd- better to have a stroll when rush hour is over, even when not attending any of... More
