Cheap hotels near Leicester Square in London, United Kingdom
What the central Leicester Square (pronounced "Lester") lacks in size (it encompasses only about four acres), it makes up for in personality, bright lights and glitz. This pedestrian square is the epicenter of London’s cinephile scene, and is packed with large movie theaters that frequently host premieres.
Fans of live theater will also take keen interest in TKTS, Leicester Square’s half-price theater ticket booth. The booth is located on the square and sells heavily discounted same-day tickets to West End shows. Read more (including tickets available today) on the TKTS Web site.
But note: We only recommended the TKTS booth. Numerous private ticket brokers line the streets around Leicester Square, many of which add a pricey service charge to tickets.
