Even if you're not going to go and see one of the world-famous shows that the West End of London has to offer, it is an experience in itself just to have a wander through the West End and see the fronts of the the theatres where the shows happen.

A great place to walk, sightsee and get a taste of London. Shops, pubs, theaters, and throngs of people to watch. If they still have it, try the West End Pub Crawl. A number of associated pubs. At that time, visiting 5 pubs earned a tee shirt celebrating the West End Pub Crawl. I did get one.

Great if you plan on seeing some stage productions but if you're not.... just have a walk through. Tons of shops and restaurants.

This is the heart & engine of London. From shops to restaurants to bars to clubs to museums to tourist attractions to art galleries...you get the gist. This is where it all happens in London - most highly recommended.

No visit to London is complete without a show in the West End but it's fun to just walk around the area too. Walk around see all the different shows airing on any given night and do a bit of people watching.
