This reminds me of a small version of New York Times Square. Its always busy but it definitely has to be seen if you are a tourist.

How can you go wrong hanging out here? There is entertainment and food nearby, but the people hanging out are entertainment enough! Add in free live music, what is better than that? Enjoy

A central hub of London. Lots going on and stacks to see and do. A bustling location. Busy, or what, especially at night time. See it, then appreciate going home to peace and quiet (if you're lucky enough to be able do so).

This is truly the centre of London with its bright lights and bustling people, statues such as Eros and those magnificent horses! Open all hours one could say this area is always that without a doubt

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
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
