“Always plenty to do and good people watching!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I've always enjoyed walking around the West End. There's plenty to do and see, including plenty of shopping whatever your budget. It's also great to see who else is in the area as this attracts every kind of person from around the world.

“Shops, pubs and bars, theatre and churches”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The West End can be fun, heavenly or horrid depending on what time of year you visit and indeed whether it's day or night time. It's amazing at Christmas time, with super lights and decorations and an atmosphere to match. The shops have superb displays and it's very festive in Oxford Street and Regent Street, St Christopher's Place, Carnaby Street and Bond Street. But if you venture forth during Sales time, the area is jam packed with international bargain hunters clogging up the pavements and generally behaving badly. Avoid at all costs.
If you like theatre, there is nowhere with as much choice as the West End - musicals, Shakespeare, contemporary theatre, comedy, ballet - just make sure you buy your tickets on the day at one of the many late booking stalls around Leicester Square. Great value!
