Travel Tips: Getting Around Theatreland

Do you need help travelling to see a show in London? We have a few tips that might help you get around the capital.

 

What is the West End and where can I find it?

A visit to London is not complete without a trip to the West End. This exciting hub, located in the district of Central London, is where you will find many of the city’s major tourist attractions and shopping areas and of course, is the epicentre of theatrical entertainment.

The West End covers the entirety of Theatreland (except Royal Festival Hall and the Old Vic, which are both south of the river), and includes the surrounding areas of Soho, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and Aldwych.

From the north it runs across Oxford Street from Oxford Circus to Holborn and connects south to Aldwych, west along the Strand to Trafalgar Square and then north again, rejoining Oxford Circus.
