Theatreland

If you are interested in the arts, then there should be something of interest at one of London’s Theatres.  Theatreland contains approximately forty venues, and is located in the heart of the West End of Central London.  Traditionally defined by The Strand to the south; Oxford Street to the north; Regent Street to the west and Kingsway to the east.  Prominent theatre streets include Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Strand.  The works staged are predominantly musicals, classic or middle-brow plays, and comedy performances.

Or try something a little different...

"London is made for walking.  It is a city of small streets and sudden vistas, of unexpected alleys and hidden courtyards.  It cannot be seen from a bus or car..." - Peter Ackroyd
