Leicester Square

London's home of entertainment is world renowned for its diverse offering.

Enjoy one of many shows on offer or witness the sparkle of red carpet premieres at one of the world-class cinemas averaging one premiere every week. The square attracts Hollywood actors from around the world who come to walk the red carpet.

Sweet loving families will not want to miss Europe’s biggest sweet shop, M&M's World, which is large enough to house 100 double decker buses. Here visitors can personalise these delicious chocolates. Opposite is the largest LEGO Store on the planet, home to a 200,000 brick model of Big Ben and the LEGO Mosaic Maker photo booth, a nifty machine that creates a personalised LEGO portrait.

There are plenty of unique places to visit including Japan Centre, a haven of Japanese food, cooking and cuisine. Gifts range from Hello Kitty goodies to calligraphy and sushi sets.

Sit back and relax in one of the many restaurants and bars – many offer special events or menus during premieres and pre- or post-theatre menus.

Try your luck at one of the casinos and soak up the atmosphere in beautifully restored buildings, some with views across central London, such as The Hippodrome Casino, Casino at the Empire, G Casino and more.

Relax and revel in luxury at one of Leicester Square's hotels which include the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire and the Premier Inn London Leicester Square as well as W London, all offering excellent facilities and high quality right in the heart of London.

Finish the day with a meal in one of Leicester Square's family friendly restaurants like The Rainforest Cafe, MOD Pizza, McDonalds or Busaba Eathai.
