Guide To London
In London , the play is definitely the thing. This city has always been associated with the theatre…from the time when William Shakespeare penned his comedies and dramas to present day when the West End attracts tourists from around the globe who come to London to see the newest plays which open here before they make it to Broadway.

Many travelers to London plan their visit around the theatre, taking in quite a few plays during their stay. You need to book your tickets before you head over or else you might miss out on the ones you want to see. As previously mentioned, the West End is where much of the theatre action is centered, and hotels conveniently located in this area include Le Meridien Russell, the Best Western Shaftesbury Hotel, Harrington Hall, K West Hotel, the Royal Sussex, Novotel London Euston, the Sanderson, and Euston Plaza.

Beyond the West End , there are many repertory theaters including The Royal National Theatre which performs musicals, classics, and new plays; The Royal Shakespeare Company; performances at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre; Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park; The Barbican Centre; and more. Other cultural venues include The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera House.

But if theatre is not your thing, there is plenty to do after dark that doesn't involve a curtain. In fact, London is well known for its wild clubs with dan cing and partying well into the morning hours (some until 9 a.m.!) — just remember that the Tube stops running around midnight (but the buses still go).

After a big day of sightseeing, dan cing till dawn may not be your thing and there are quite a number of other options. Jazz and Blues clubs are plentiful and feature a wide variety of local and international performers.

Pubs are always a great place to be…pretty much any time of the day or night. They always have a lively atmosphere, you can dress casual, and you're bound to pick up a great joke or two as the British have a truly wicked sense of humor. And if you are really into beer, London has microbreweries for your drinking pleasure. If you'd rather not go the alcohol route, there are tea houses and coffee houses which are great for quiet conversation and a relaxed way to spend the evening and enjoy some great conversation or just to sit back and leaf through your guidebook while planning the next day's excursion.

London even has its share of casinos…although many are quite elegant establishments geared toward international high rollers. If you're just looking for a bit of fun without emptying out the bank account, the Golden Nugget is probably the best choice as they have Black Jack, Roulette, and slot machines.

For those who just want to go out for the evening with no particular destination in mind, you might want to narrow it down to a specific neighborhood and once you get there, you can decide what looks good.

Covent Garden , for example, is a great neighborhood for nightlife…great restaurants, pubs, and bars. Le Meridien Waldorf and the Swissotel London – The Howard are nearby.

Piccadilly Circus is where five streets converge, and between the neon signs, crowds, and activity, it's like London's version of Times Square…you can definitely find something to do and some place to go here including comedy clubs and gay and lesbian bars. Le Meridien Piccadilly puts you right in the heart of the action.

SoHo is a great place to spend the evening…dining in a café, hanging out in a pub, listening to music in a bar, dan cing in a club, or even taking in a cabaret show.

Also, the British Film Institute has an IMAX theatre with the largest screen in the UK — a great choice for movie buffs. The National Film Theatre is also a good option with foreign language films, documentaries, and more.

Finally, if you just haven't gotten your fill of sightseeing, there are a number of walking tours available…including a Jack The Ripper tour which follows in the footsteps of this serial killer taking you to the various places where his victims were found murdered…if you so dare.
