London's Theatreland

Leicester Square, located in the heart of London, is known as the city’s “Theatreland.” The area comes to life at night with its abundance of theatre-goers, and is one of the best places to be on Friday or Saturday night if you’re interested in seeing a play or watching a film. Empire Leicester Square Cinema is one of the square’s largest and most popular cinemas, hosting many popular movie premieres. If you aren’t looking for a new movie, the Prince Charles Cinema is a cheaper cinema that shows older films. Visitors to London should be sure to see a more modern play at the Prince of Wales Theater, or if you're more into classic theatre, Her Majesty’s Theatre certainly won't disappoint. Although plays can be expensive, Leicester Square is home to London’s TKTS booth, which sells theatre tickets at a discounted price. If watching movies or plays isn’t your thing, the Leicester Square area also has many bars, restaurants, and a high-end casino called, Casino at the Empire. Regardless of your nightlife preferences, Leicester Square is a lively area that has an option for everyone.
