There are so many places of interest here from the shopping streets of course to the architecture and theatres galleries etc. etc. Would suggest if you are going for the first time make sure you have some sort of a guidebook as there are far too many things of interest...

We explored much of the West End on foot. There was so much to see and do. If you are a keen shopper, then there are plenty of retail therapy opportunities along Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street. We found that Oxford Street provided the best shopping opportunities for us. There are a number of department stores located along... More

We went to the Queen's Theatre to to see Les Miserables. Great performance and great theatre. There are a number of theatres in the area with a good selection of performances. Lots of shops and restaurants.

The theatre is a huge part of london. I have been lucky enough to watch the Phantom many times here, Chicago before it closed, Wicked, The King and I and many more. Its not the nicest looking part of town. To some it would seem quite daunting. At kick out time 10,30pm approx the streets are FULL of people. Grab... More

Entertainment centre of the capital. If visiting a theatre it is best to book online months before your visit. As this is a tourist attraction the prices of almost everything is over the top.

Well, i hate this part of town. Feels dirty and grotty. Overun with tourists who don't know where they're going or seem to understand how roads work. Crappy shops and overpriced cafes. I avoid this like a mad thing
