West End accommodation – the centre of London culture
Lying at the heart of London's cultural metropolis, accommodation in the West End is the ideal location for the avid theatre goer and keen shoppers. The West End of London offers a wide range of theatre productions, from musicals such as the Lion King to operas like Carmen at London's Royal Opera House. If it's free entertainment you're after, simply have a wander around Covent Garden, where you'll find plenty of street performers such as magicians and musicians. A holiday rental in the West End will be sure to keep you entertained.
The perfect place for shopping and dining
If you plan on going on a shopping spree during your stay in a West End holiday rental, be sure to hit Oxford Street – stretched across this mile-long road are around 300 different shops at your disposal including Selfridges, the second largest department store in the UK, with the largest, Harrods, just a mile away in Kensington. After all this shopping has exhausted you, why not head towards Piccadilly and have a traditional British afternoon tea at the Ritz? Or for a taste of some of London's many independent restaurants head to Carnaby Street, where they hold a Food Festival showcasing local businesses every year. West End accommodation also puts you at the centre of London's vibrant nightlife, with Mayfair and Leicester Square offering a wide variety of nightclubs such as Tiger Tiger or Dirty Martini.

Just round the corner from your West End accommodation is Westminster, where you'll find political buildings such as Parliament and Whitehall – if you get the chance, you may even see the Prime Minister on Downing Street.
