Lively area during the day, even more lively after dark, Leicester Square is the entertainment hub in London with multiplexes/cinemas, numerous theaters, cafes, restaurants, night clubs and lounges.Recommended for:

Leicester Square is a great place to go with friends, also the place where they have all the discount musical tickets! Definitely pop by to see if you can get some cheap last-minute tickets -- I managed to get a few tickets at really great prices: Avenue Q, Phantom of the Opera, and Lion King! It's also a great place to just walk around, shop, and eat. They also do movie premieres here!Recommended for:

In and around Leicester Square is a chaotic mix of casinos, theatres,cinemas and a bunch of touristy chain restaurants and shops. Both Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown border the area.
Most of London's red carpet film premieres take place here so it's a good spot to go celebrity spotting!

Not much to see at the moment because the entire thing is under construction. The new layout is due to be unveiled in the spring of 2012. It appears that they are creating a set up to make the part easier to convert for red carpet events.Recommended for:

Leicester Square is pretty much London's Times Square thought its not nearly as loud or garish. Plenty of shopping in the area...if you don't mind the exchange rate, shows, restaurants and more bars then pubs hereRecommended for:

Leicester Square is located in central London and is a popular tourist area. Chinatown is within walking distance of the metro stop and there are plenty of bustling restaurants nearby.Recommended for:

Centrally located, easy to access by tube, and always teeming with life, Leicester Square is a fantastic spot for people-watching, meeting out-of-town friends, and, of course, for buying cheap tickets to shows. I love taking my time reading all the listings, watching people in line debate whether they'd rather see "Chicago" for 10 pounds or "Avenue Q" for 20, and then following any alleyway away towards a row of big theater lights.Recommended for:

On a sunny afternoon, no better people watching can be found than sitting in Leicester Square. Situated in West End in the heart of the theatre and cinema district, there's bars and restaurants, shops of all variety and booths selling half priced theatre tickets. Cars aren't allowed so the square is a sea of pedestrians of every age and shape.

Leicester Square is a pedestrian area that's plenty busy during the night. There are lots of restaurants and things to see. Several theatres are in the area, so its great for pre- or post-show activities.

Leicester Square is such a unique part of the city that I always enjoy passing through. It's a pedestrian area home to London's theatre district with plenty of ticket booths, restaurants and theatres scattered around. Be spontaneous, stop by a ticket booth and ask for the cheapest ticket in town. Each theatrical show is worth it!
