There are some buildings of note in this area namely the facade of Aldwych House and St Clements Danes Church which has a few statues too. We only whizzed by on a bus trip but there is a bit to see here if you have more time.

Theatres, restaurants, churches, historic buildings - this part of London has so much to offer visitors. The highlight is Somerset House with its majestic architecture, restaurants, cafes and even a skating rink in the winter. The RAF church, St Clement Danes, is here, as are the Royal Courts of Justice. The BBC’s first headquarters, Bush House can be seen from the outside (it’s now closed) and there are major Commonwealth government centres like India House and Australia House. Visit and enjoy.

Got caught up in a frightening demonstration here on 15th August. Some were demonstrating about Kashmir, some about Syria and goodness knows where else! My friend and I were trying to get into the Aldwych theatre. We turned the corner and were appalled to see thousands of people spilling off the pavement and filling the roads. All transport had come to a complete halt. The most disgusting thing for us was the debris left behind by these so called demonstrators after their protesting. Cans, plastics, plastic bottles, paper, you name it, it was there!!! If you want to demonstrate I suppose you can, this is a free country. BUT for goodness sake take your rubbish away with you if you can't find a bin and don't intimidate people going about their business who don't wish to join your protests!

While spending time in London again, we took another long walk from Trafalgar Square up the Strand and towards Fleets Street. Before heading further along the Strand we diverted slightly for another walk through Aldwych. While strolling along the roadway's footpath we passed by the Indian High Commission building, the Novello and Aldwych theatres and then we eventually came to Australia House where Aldwych meets the Strand again. Aldwych is certainly a lively area with it theatres, restaurants and bars. It was very busy again while we were there this time, with the footpaths crowded with people and the roadway carrying heavy traffic. Certainly an interesting area and well worth a visit!
