London's expensive West End, home to many of its top end theatres. Nice enough area, but full of hustlers - so watch out for your belongings.

Not that other parts aren't enjoyable but the West End offers many, many shops, restaurants and parks to enjoy and it would take days to explore them all, but it is worth the time.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Check out the Rathbone Hotel. It's within walking distance to the West End and surrounded by lots of inexpensive places to eat.
