To even walk through this area is to be annoyed by the sight of Yodas, Harry Potters, and other buskers plying their trade for your change (two pound coins preferred). To make it a 'destination' is to waste your time. It's chain restaurants and faux...More

Besides being the "go to" place to buy discounted theater tickets, Leicester Square has a Christmas Market this season, with multiple places to eat, drink and shop.

Went here during the Christmas market time. It was okay but the stalls weren't overly compelling. The area wasn't too crowded either. A ton of restaurants nearby though.

The most busy square of all times. Events, performers and variety of food is some of the things that you see and want to be a part of. Leicester Square is always a good idea, especially in Christmas. Enjoy!

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
