I have been to London once as a child and we stayed near the Opera House. I remember liking the area. I want to make a trip there this March and I'm not sure what would be the best area for me to stay in. We plan on doing all the tourist type things along with catching a show. We are three girls in our late twenties/early thirties that enjoys moderate lodging, pubs, beer and that wants to try the local cuisine. Any advise would be much appreciated.
