The play we saw was brilliant, everyone was laughing out loud all the way through. Theatre itself is very characterful, though the seats are crammed in without much space. Still 5 stars though as play was so good.

the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

Do you love musicals, plays and comedies? If you do then Piccadilly is the right place to stay. It is also a great place to shop. The National Gallery is 5 minutes away; Big Ben is 15 minutes away. Use the subway to get... More
