Shaftesbury Avenue

Built in the late 1880s as a solution to increasing traffic congestion in the city, Shaftesbury Avenue quickly became central to the city’s entertainment district. The Lyric Theatre was the first to be constructed in 1888, with the Palace following hot on its heels. Whilst the theatres continue to draw in the crowds, the proliferation of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas, and comedy venues have widened the area’s appeal even further. Shaftesbury Avenue is the entrance to Chinatown, which prides itself on the best Asian cuisine in London. The street is also the birthplace of legendary singer Cat Stevens.

  • Catch London’s latest musical or dramatic offerings at the Lyric Theatre, the oldest theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue still producing cutting edge performances.
  • Step out of the hustle and bustle of London life and into the rainforest with a visit to the themed Rainforest Café and their wide range of international cuisine.
  • Experience a dash of British elegance that Shaftesbury Avenue is famous for at the dignified Stanza Restaurant and Late Night Bar, ideal for both business and social occasions.

Situated in the heart of London, Shaftesbury Avenue is well connected with buses, tubes, and trains providing regular services to centrally positioned stations and stops. Oyster cards can be used on all buses and tubes, making an economical and efficient means of travelling around the city. The car parks close to Shaftesbury Avenue are often very busy and expensive so those wishing to avoid public transport should consider hailing a cab or even splashing out on a hired limousine. The area should look familiar even to first-time visitors as it featured in the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Very Average for the price
Great location, very average hotel. Single bed in an Executive room? I don't think so. No fridge in room, bathroom amenities basic.
