The West End of London is the tourist Mecca. Shopping, theatre, wining & dining, it's all going on here. Spent a couple of hours strolling around in the Spring sunshine. Very pleasant!

I love the West End. It's always full of life, and activity, even on the most dreary of days. There's always so much to see and do, from a Stage Show, to comedy clubs, eat and drink, it's all in this bustling part of the city.

The best shopping in London, the top restaurants, the most famous theatres and night clubs and many of the key tourist attractions are in London's West End. Shoppers can wear out their shoe leather as they trek past the stores on Oxford Street and Regent Street. Some of the retail highlights include Selfridges, the largest department store in the UK,...

Great show, and Darius Campbell is terrific. Super score and top cast . One or two really hum-able songs. Can't wait to get the cast recording. Shame the Shaftsbury wasn't more than 70% full; you don't know what you're missing.

If you like history and live theatre, London and New York are the best. Went to New York 2 years ago. Saw 3 musicals. London in October and saw Les Miserable for the 10th time. Lion King and BillyElliot for the second time, War Horse and The Book Of Mormon. Could have stayed a month and still not seen all... More

We brought along Rick Steves London book & in it he includes several walking tours--you can either read them from the book or download to an iPod with a Y jack, which is what my husband & I did for the West End. It was an amazing site-filled walk, but allow several hours for it & wear good walking shoes... More

The selection of shopping is very good. There are some really good department stores and restaurants and I have often spent a whole day there just shopping (and eating).
