There's lots of action and things going on here, but it's mostly glitzy stuff aimed at tourists. You can find a meal here very easily in the various fast food places, but it is not really worth coming here without a purpose, there is a...More
If you thought London was all class (and most of it is), then come check this out for some counterbalance. It is loaded with tourists, teens, junk stores and substandard eateries. Gobs of street performers and I would imagine pickpockets, so hold on tight. The...More
While perhaps not as striking as Trafalgar Square, the area around Leicester Square is a fun place to hang out and watch for street performers. We were only passing through, but we saw a man with a Micheal Jackson marionette and a floating Yoda. I...More
My wife and I seen this last night, after we'd eaten, came back and had great food, I had southern fried chicken & pork, and my wife just had the southern fried chicken washed down with a bottle of my favourite wine Pinot Grigio, finished...More
If visiting London and want a hectic, street performer, tourist vibe, this is your place. Good people watching at night but this area won’t give you the true London experience. Better to walk over to 7 Dials, Covent Garden. Both busy areas but the vibe...More

Leicester Square, an area in Central London surrounded by restaurants, pubs, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Hotel, and tourism and theater vendors, is worth strolling around. In the center of Leicester Square is a statue of William Shakespeare surrounded by water fountains. And just around...More
Leicester Square is always a hive of activity. There’s so much to see and do. It’s full of shops, restaurants and cafes, the Odeon cinema (currently closed for refurbishment but usually where big film premieres are held) and nearby theatres. You get street entertainment of...More
Our hotel was just off this vibrant square so we got to experience it at many different times of day. It was always busy with some sort of street entertainment from magicians to bell ringers. We felt safe walking through even at midnight. Always try...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 neighbourhood 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 wouldn't make a special trip just for the market, but if you're passing through Leicester Square have a wander. Hyde park winter wonderland is extremely busy. There is a very lovely Christmas market along the south bank... More
I wouldn't make a special trip just for the market, but if you're passing through Leicester Square have a wander. Hyde park winter wonderland is extremely busy. There is a very lovely Christmas market along the south bank all the way up to tower bridge which makes for a lovely walk with places to stop for food and drinks.
