In the heart of the West End lies the capital’s shopping mecca, Oxford Street, which is a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. With over 300 of the nation’s favourite high street shops, premium boutiques and upmarket department stores it is the busiest shopping street in Europe. Favourite retailers such as Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, Topshop and Selfridges have their flagship stores here and the street helps to form the larger shopping district around Regent Street, home to Hamley’s toy store, and Bond Street, known for its selection of luxury fashion houses.
Another one of London’s iconic destinations is nearby Covent Garden, famously immortalised by the flower market scene in the 1964 musical film adaptation of My Fair Lady. Formerly an established indoor fruit and vegetable market, Covent Garden today is a popular tourist and shopping attraction renowned for the variety of street performers and entertainment acts that regularly appear on its streets. Clustering the area are numerous notable landmarks including the Royal Opera House, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and the London Transport Museum. Covent Garden also boasts over 60 bars, pubs and clubs making it the ideal nightlife destination for younger hotel clientele.
The West End area of London is arguably most famous for the dozens of prestigious theatres that put on first rate musicals and shows which are critically acclaimed across the globe. Often dubbed as ‘Theatreland’, West End musicals attract thousands of tourists each year hoping to experience the magic of long-running shows such as The Lion King, The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. Theatre companies usually put on two shows daily, a matinee and evening performance, and last minute tickets can be bought for cheaper prices at box office vendors in nearby Leicester Square.
