This is a busy main road running sort of East to West from Holborn through Cambridge Circus to Piccadilly Circus. There are restaurants, bars and theatres along here but really I think the best areas to explore are accessed from here just off of the...More
Shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres - what's not to love? Soho is just off this busy street and there is so much to do and see around the area. You could spend hours here just browsing, eating, drinking and people watching. The heart of theatre land.
My other half took me to London to see a show, something I'd always wanted to do (but I'm from the North....said in a Jon Snow tone 😂), so Shaftesbury Avenue was a total delight. My eyes were like saucepan lids taking in all the...More
This is a great part of London. There are many theatres, restaurants and cafes and it's easy to walk to many other parts of London from here. Soho is just off this Avenue, as is Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Oxford Street and Regents Street...More
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
I did find nice coffee shops but not used WiFi. Pret a mange had WiFi and was very clean and polite. Got a free cup of tea because my husband knew about the tv programme Big Bang theory”

Where to stay & what to do when coming to see Les Mis (2 Replies)
Hi I'm taking my husband to see Les Mis for his 30th birthday as a surprise but don't know where would be best to stay to be close-ish to the theatre (Queens Theatre Shaftesbury Avenue W1) but also easy to get out to a nice restaurant, the History museum etc etc. Anyone know of good hotels round there? Looking to spend around £100 per night. Also, any tips on restaurants, things to do much appreciated!! Thanks

Hi Thanks for the suggestions, I'm coming at the very end of June from Manchester, only down for the weekend though so a bit of a 'hit and run' trip really.

If you have been to Mela Restaurant, can you let me know if you would recommend it, please? Planning on going there for a pre-theatre dinner - to the one in Shaftesbury Avenue. Thank you.

Can anyone recommend somewhere for a pre-theatre meal near Queens Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue. Mid range price (up to £25 for 3 courses) - prefer Italian, English, French or American dining. Thank you. Have looked on the forum, but 2012 was the last recommendation.
