So many things to see and so much to do. Restaurants, shops and sightseeing are all contained in a small area, a real must for visitors.

The center of London. Easy walk to Piccadilly Circus, Covent Garden, SoHo, Trafalgar Square and more! Statue of Shakespeare and water fountains make this area a joy to explore and people watch. Free movies in the square during summer weekends. Anything you’d want is here!

We loved walking around. Enjoyed the different places to check out. They even had an outdoor movie for the children.

Leicester Square is full of buskers, magicians, mimes, diva wannabes and pickpockets. Certainly a free show — or a lot of them. If you’re walking from the Embankment to a theater, it’s a colorful stroll that gets old pretty quick.

Pups, street performers, take a moment to chill on the square. LEGO Store, M&M store and right at the entrance to Chinatown. Great vibe to really enjoy an evening of fun.
