London’s West End

About London’s West End

London’s West End is one of the most iconic, celebrated and exciting places in the world. Comprising just a few square miles, it sits at the heart of a global city projected to grow to over 10m people over the next 15-20 years. The West End:

  • Has the busiest shopping district in the world around Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street.
  • Hosts some of the most famous centres of cultural activity in the world, with public events and iconic public spaces that are hugely popular with Londoners and visitors alike.
  • Is home to 30 museums, public and private galleries and 40 theatres showcasing a diverse range of visual and performing arts.
  • In Soho, has the most LGBTQ+ friendly bars and clubs in London.
  • Borders three Royal Parks and contains seven historic parks and gardens.

Many streets, squares and areas have been improved over the last 10 years and more are due shortly – for example, the transformation of the Oxford Street District and Tottenham Court Road/Gower Street. The opening of the Elizabeth Line will create greater demand for, and access to, the West End.
