Most of the great musicals you will find in one of the many theaters. You can find a lot of restaurants with pre and post dinners, but most of the are open whole day. Small shops make it even more inviting.

This is where I have worked on and off for 18 years and it's still as fun and exciting as it was when I first started working in this area. It's vibrant, a bit grotty in parts, but wonderful! Loads of pubs, bars and restaurants to experience on every street and every corner. There is something for everyone. Close to... More

London's West End is just one of the best places in the city! All the shops, the restaurants, the bars, the coffee shops and, most of all, the theatres and cinemas! Be sure to go to one of the many shows, there're excellent!!!! The food scene is amazing and the nightlife wonderful (thanks to Soho!)

Love the West End of London! It's where you can shop, go to the theater, enjoy one of the many parks and squares in the city, and the list goes on. The West End is one of the things that makes London the vibrant city that it is. Beautiful, exciting, and lots of variety!

Whichever show you visit, West End will most probably not disappoint you. Be careful with the resellers of tickets on the streets, as they might charge you more than you need to pay, so try online browsing. Best I have found has been lastminute website. Or maybe would be better to buy from the official booth on Leicester square if... More

Nothing beats a walk through the West End of London. It is always buzzing, no matter what time of day you visit. Yes it's crowded and yes it can be exhausting, but no other city in the world offers that certain magic of Central London. Whether it's the attractions, shopping, restaurants, Chinatown or the theatres that bring you here, it... More
