West End Hotels - London

Mini guide to West End

     

The West End is part of Westminster and is home to London's major cinemas and theatres, as well as some of the best restaurants and shopping areas. The West End encompasses Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, and Trafalgar Square.

For market lovers, visit the Sunday Charing Cross Collectors' Fair, which sells all sorts of items for collectors, such as coins, bank notes, medals and stamps. It is located in Villiers Street, just a short walk from Trafalgar Square or Charing Cross tube station.

You can't visit London without visiting the theatre. Cut price tickets for performances on the day of sale can be bought at the Half Price Ticket Booth in Leicester Square.

The Theater Royal Drury Lane, built in 1663, was one of only two venues in London where drama could be legally staged. In Georgian times the Theatre Royal and the Royal Opera House were the two main attractions for London's theatre lovers. Donmar Warehouse is a good fringe theatre which has continued to produce a combination of old and new plays to a very high standard.

The Savoy, one of London's most famous hotels, was built in 1889. Overlooking the Thames, it stands on the site of the medieval Savoy Palace. Today, the hotel's art deco features still give it a distinctive elegance and a meal at the Savoy Grill should not be missed. Attached to the building is the Savoy Theatre, which actually predates the hotel by eight years. It was here that the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan were performed.

The West End is the perfect location for any outing in London and an excellent central area. It encompasses most of the favorite tourist areas, and provides easy access to others. Main tube stations are: Piccadilly Circus, Charing Cross, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.
