This is the West End, the theatre district of London, with many great shows to choose from. If you’ve got your theatre tickets booked, there’s so much more on offer. A short stroll will bring you to Soho with its slightly bohemian atmosphere. Quirky restaurants, cosy pubs, lively bars and sex shops co-exist in this cosmopolitan part of town, where you can party 24 hours a day. There are also plenty of independent shops to explore, with bargains waiting to be discovered. Chinatown is positioned just south of Soho, with its brilliant colours, tantalising smells and plethora of restaurants offering all kinds of exotic treats.
Leicester Square is at the very heart of the West End and remains the hub of British Cinema. With many European Premieres airing here, there are often crowds of hopeful onlookers waiting to catch a glimpse of the stars as they tread the red carpet.
When it comes to shopping, you can’t beat Bond Street for its designer labels or Oxford Street for its bargains, both of which are within easy reach. Covent Garden, with a variety of interesting shops and market stalls, street entertainers and cosy cafés is a fascinating place to take a stroll.
