Latest reviews | Events in West End | 10 Places to Stay

The West End - central London's great entertainment area - is a loosely defined district west of the City. To most people, however, the West End means the bright lights of theatreland, the shopping paradise in and around Bond Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street, the glittering nightlife of Leicester Square, the atmospheric markets, restaurants, bars and clubs of Soho and Covent Garden, and the colour of Chinatown. Visitors wishing to enjoy the traditional London treat of dinner and a West End show are literally spoilt for choice, with many grand theatres presenting musicals and mainstream dramas, famously in Shaftesbury Avenue, Drury Lane and The Strand. Up to and including the 19th Century, the West End was home to well-heeled residents living in palaces and imposing houses. Today, it has something for everyone, from the pricey designer shops and art galleries of Bond Street to the small, independent fashion boutiques of Carnaby Street, and from the pavement cafés and large cinemas of Leicester Square, complete with regular red-carpet premières, to the world-renowned Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the humble but historic basement rock venue the 100 Club. West End Live, a two-day family festival, is held every June in Leicester Square.
