The West End area of London is full of theatres, bars, restaurants and shops. There are also quite a few tourist attractions including Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, Covent Garden and Chinatown to name just a few. Many of the tube lines go through West End and lots of buses as well but the best way to explore is on foot. There are lots of places to stop off and loads of shops to go into including the M&M's and Lego Stores. Theatreland is located here and there are places to by tickets for last minute deals for different shows. Sadly many of the music venues in the West End have been demolished which is a real shame but I would definitely recommend exploring this cosmopolitan area.

This is a vast part of London and as its name suggests, it is located to the west of the part of London known as the City of London. This was our fourth visit to London and each of those visits has seen us spend a substantial amount of time in the West End. Our activities in the West End during this most recent visit involved shopping in the extensive retail neighbourhood around Oxford Street and strolling through the fascinating theatre district around Leicester Square and Shaftsbury Avenue. Wherever we went in the West End, we found crowds of both locals and tourists out, enjoying the summer sunshine. Anyone who visits London as a tourist should spend at least half a day visiting as much of the West End of London as they can. A full day would be even better but this would still not do it justice!

The heart of Londons Theatre Land this Can Be extremely busy with large crowds of theatregoers especially after the end of shows when all the crowds multiply by large numbers , expect a fair wait for taxis or find a good app and pre-book one ! , and of course be aware of pickpockets ! this is thier work area ! Plenty of cafes , restaurants and fast food outlets to be had , once again better pre-booked ! Enjoy !

Our tour guide Charlie was awesome. He lives in the West End and could relate to everything happening there. The tour was fascinating and the stories and history were spell binding. A must do when in London.

The place to go for on-stage entertainment is the West End. A short walk from Leicester Square or Piccadilly and you’ll find yourself in and amongst the stage doors and box office queues. It is world-famous and not only plays host to grand theatres such as Adelphi and Apollo Victoria, but many eateries and renowned bars. It’s been going for almost four-hundred years too!
