Most of this area is quite posh, but it is possible to find cheaper places to eat and drink. The west end covers quite a large chunk if central London

A large area within central London, which covers smaller areas such as Mayfair and Soho; this is the place to be for all tourists in London with many attractions, shops, squares/circuses and a lot of night-life options.

there is so much to see and do, what ever your tastes your sure to find something, don't always look at street level there is so much architecture to see and so much history.

Most of the great musicals you will find in one of the many theaters. You can find a lot of restaurants with pre and post dinners, but most of the are open whole day. Small shops make it even more inviting.

This is where I have worked on and off for 18 years and it's still as fun and exciting as it was when I first started working in this area. It's vibrant, a bit grotty in parts, but wonderful! Loads of pubs, bars and restaurants to experience on every street and every corner. There is something for everyone. Close to... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
