General Entertainment
“One of the best kept secrets in London apparently. The TKTS booth sits in the middle of Leicester Square and is the official ticket reseller for all of London's West End shows. Left over seats are passed to TKTS a few days before each show and sold at a phenomenal discount - sometimes more than half price! ”

Hotel
“Leicester (LESS-ter) Square is a small park surrounded by glitzy cinema houses. It sits smack in the middle of the theatre district-ground zero for London's enticing offerings or flashy musicals, intimate plays starring big-name actors and much more. Here is the entertainment centre of London., a statue of Shakespeare looks out, as if pondering the quote chiseled into his pedestal. "There is no darkness but ignorance". Charlie Chaplin facing the bard, was a Londoner, the child of music-hall performers. The squares movie theatres are famous for hosting red-carpet movie premieres. When Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie or Brad Pritt needs a publicity splash it'll likely be here. ”
