This is the Times Square of London. Lots of shopping, restaurants, pubs and street performers. Visiting around Christmas time is a plus with all the Christmas lights down the streets. I would say it’s an must see while roaming the streets of London.

It's very central and big. I like to look at the billboards especially at night. Walking distance from Soho and all the main places. I love the street artists that perform there and also the hustle and bustle of the city. It's a great atmosphere.

It’s full of tourists and lots of shops but it’s a pretty soulless place unless you want your picture taken. A very high chance of being run over at a crossing where cars ignore the lights. To be honest unless you want a picture of...More

St. James's
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

As long as you wish to spend. You can simply see it and move on, about 10 minutes to take a look around and some photos. Or you can grab an ice cream, sit down, and soak up the atmosphere.

There's a kiosk called TKTS right on Leicester Square, near Piccadilly. You can buy same day show tickets there. I think there are more of these kiosks. Google map TKTS and Leicester Square and you'll see it
