Not that other parts aren't enjoyable but the West End offers many, many shops, restaurants and parks to enjoy and it would take days to explore them all, but it is worth the time.

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed

vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic

Check out the Rathbone Hotel. It's within walking distance to the West End and surrounded by lots of inexpensive places to eat.
