Experience the very best in plays, shows, films and musicals in London’s theatre district. The West End is home to over 40 theatres, including St Martin’s Theatre, which is currently home to the world’s longest-running play, The Mousetrap.
Of course, an evening at the theatre wouldn’t be complete without a pre-or post- dinner, so restaurants in the West End of London are copious in number, and diverse in theme. Choices range from the informal to the elegant, with traditional pubs and steakhouses aplenty. Also offering opportunities for some of the world’s best fine dining, West End of London restaurants include some of the city’s smartest dining spots.
For elegance Indian-style, Imli is the one of the area’s go-to destinations. Inside, décor based on dark woods with neutrals and flashes of orange creates a warm, intimate atmosphere, while food is served tapas-style, and designed for sharing. Imli’s 2-course pre-theatre menu is wallet-friendly, and includes a specially made cocktail.
If you want to sample one of London’s most iconic destinations, it has to be the Palm Court at The Ritz. This magnificent venue is a British institution, and has been in business for over 100 years since opening as it did in 1906. For an iconic experience, opt for their world-famous afternoon tea.
