West End is the main commercial and entertainment centre of the city. Among notable sights: Hyde Park Corner, Marble Arch, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. If you love musicals or you are just looking for a fun way to spend your evening I definitely recommend Novello Theatre`s "Mamma Mia!" musical. You won`t regret it!

No matter what time of day or night there is always something to see in Theatreland. Just stroll around and enjoy the sights and sounds.

'West End' is not an actual district of London, in the same way that 'East End ' isn't either, in that there are no boundaries or signs telling you that you are there. For most it is the 'bright lights' areas centred on the Covent Garden and Leicester Square/Piccadilly Circus axis which become very busy in the evenings because these... More

Having worked in the West End for many years when I was young; I always want to return to this part of London whenever I visit. The area is the hub of action; including many tourist attractions and the wonderful West End Theatres. Just wander about and see what you discover.

This is the centre of the greatest city in the world. You can find everything in the west end and it is easy to walk the area. Alternatively, public transport covers every part of the Centre .

The Broadway of London - The West End is THE place to be and see a play or musical. I have been attending West End productions for many years and have yet to be disappointed ... Even the understudies are fantastic! This trip - May 2015 - we saw: "The Audience" with Kristen Scott Thomas ... Brilliant! "Beautiful" ... Excellent... More
