    Lots to see and do
    So much to see, so many restaurants to choose from, cafes & bakerys. Market stalls, quirky stores, street performances. This place has it all and it’s easy to navigate. Theatres are beautiful inside too, which is a must do! Just be careful of pick pockets

    We have seen many West End shows, but this stands out as one of the best. Entertaining from start to finish. I had not seen the movie or knew much about the storyline, so I was amazed how good it really was.

    Must see performance of Phantom of The Opera
    I’ve seen the Phantom of the Opera four times, but the understudy who performed as the Phantom is London was the best Phantom I have seen. He was absolutely fabulous. The musical was superb. Theaters are much smaller than in the US so seats are usually pretty good and you are closer to the stage even from back row seats. It’s a must see!

We had to buy tickets again from the real box office to see the Les Miserables” we loved the play but problem is my experience with the third party ticket company, London Theater Direct, was terrible. The night of our show I realized that I had made a mistake and bought the tickets for upcoming week and I went to the box office. The manager said they had plenty of evening tickets still available but the LTD would need to call to exchange since that is where I had purchased the tickets. After 3 calls on hold for 30 min then dropped and 3 emails, never heard a response from them. We had to buy tickets again from the box office to see the show (which was much cheaper then the third party company) I lost my money! So moral of the story is buy from box office direct in case you need to make any changes!

The show (Book of Mormon) was great but my experience with the third party ticket company, London Theater Direct, was terrible. The day before our show I realized that I had made a mistake in the ticket (bought matinee vs evening) and I went to the box office. The manager said they had plenty of evening tickets still available but the LTD would need to call to exchange since that is where I had purchased the tickets. After 3 calls on hold for 30 min then dropped and 3 emails, never heard a response from them. So moral of the story is buy from box office direct in case you need to make any changes!

Nice walk around theatre land streets with a walk I had downloaded, which gave insights into what names of streets mean, reasons for things being where they are and other interesting snippets that wouldn't be obvious from just a wander around without background info. Lots to see within a fairly small radius, with a lot of old traditional places as well as some newer and funky artworks, etc which we just came across by chance. Good way to spend a half day in London. Would upload some photos but TA doesn't seem to be uploading at the moment?

London's theatre district and arguably the best in the world with a slight edge over New York's Broadway in my opinion. The West End is made up by Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Soho. You should include seeing a West End show during any visit to London. Two of my favorite theatres are Her Majesty Theatre and The Prince of Wales Theatre. Also, great area to grab a pre or post theatre meal.

New musical and now one of my favourites. From start to finish, if I could give this 10 stars I would. The music the dancing the stage and the choreographer was second to done. I’ve never seen a standing ovation from everyone in the theatre . Well done to everyone involved in the making of a wonderful story.

We wandered around the West End and enjoyed the livelihood of the area. The atmosphere was great and the theatres beautiful. We went to see “Jersey Boys” in Trafalgar Theatre which was a 5/5 ! One of the best musicals I’ve seen. I strongly recommend it !
