Saw the Harry Potter play here & I have to say it was fantastic. The theatre is beautiful, marred a bit by massive road works outside but absolutely gorgeous. Our seats had a bit of a restricted view (we were warned about this in advance)...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
