In terms of physical activities, there are very few to speak of in this busy central location. That said, visitors will find that there are opportunities to indulge in pursuits such as cycling, walking, swimming and ice skating. Of course, the main attraction of a Westminster & West End holiday is the close proximity to so many of London’s landmarks that fall within these two areas.

The West End is home to many great theatres and this is where you can catch one of the many world famous musicals and shows that come to London on tour every year.
