The West EndTaking in Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street, Soho, Theatreland, Chinatown, Covent Garden and Leicester Square, The West End really does have it all. This buzzing city centre location has over 15 million tourists visiting each year. With so much going on it's the one part of the capital that never sleeps. As the heart of London's theatre land, The West End is home to 40 of the capital's best-loved and long-standing theatres. Like Broadway in New York, London's West End is the place where a playwright of any standing would even dream of staging their show. It also boasts a kaleidoscope of cafes, restaurants and bars as well as every type of clothes shop you could hope for, from designer labels on Bond Street to the bargains on Oxford Street. In summer months, the parks get packed with tourists and shoppers seeking a calming oasis. Whatever you're looking for - respite in a street-side respite, a cultural outing or a shopper's paradise - The West End cannot fail to satisfy your search. You can follow the guide books and plan your West End trip if you like but by far he best way to enjoy the delights of the area is to wander around the winding back streets and discover the secrets for yourself.
