West End

The West End is the major commercial and entertainment centre of London and recognised as one of the most acclaimed and celebrated areas in the world.  Due to a massive surge in the population, one in five people in England and Wales were living in London by 1901. Thus, it was considered ripe for development and much of the area was re-vamped by the Prince Regent and his architect John Nash, who went on to improve and regenerate what is now tourist London.

London’s West End boasts some of the most iconic and legendary shopping streets in the world. Oxford Street is home to Britain’s second largest store Selfridges, founded in 1909 by self-made Chicago millionaire, Gordon H. Selfridge and purported to be one of the best-known stores internationally. The place to be seen is Bond Street, perfect for a spot of luxury retail therapy and the domicile for exclusive shops such as Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co. South Molten Street is renowned for its illustrious fashion store Browns and the elegant and refined Regent Street is synonymous with Liberty, another world famous emporium that offers everything for the canny and cosmopolitan shopper looking for that special something.

Expect to be pampered in one of the many five star luxury hotels here. The Connaught in Mayfair, loved by the Americans, the Ritz London in Piccadilly and the legendary Claridge’s in Brook Street, adored by Royals past and present. All aim to bestow superlative service and the very highest standards of comfort and pleasure to their guests.

A visit to the Capital wouldn’t be complete without taking in the atmosphere and vibration of London’s theatre scene, an area which, alongside New York’s Broadway, is reputed to be of the highest quality in the world. Most restaurants are within a 5 to 10 minute walk from the theatres and so whether it’s pre-theatre meal or post-theatre there is a vast variety of regional and traditional cuisines from around the world to tempt the most jaded of palates.

The West End is an enticing and vibrant place to visit, not just for out of towners but for the millions of overseas visitors who seek out this particular hub of London for its art, culture, and history.
