• Entertainment in London

    There is so much entertainment on offer in London; it makes it difficult to decide what to do next! With our guide to London entertainment, we aim to make that decision a little easier…

    Art Galleries / Museums

    You are spoilt for choice in London - there are over 300 galleries and museums. From the traditional such as the British Museum and National Gallery, to the up-to-date Science Museum and Tate Modern Gallery, all of which are free to enter.

    Film / Cinemas

    The Odeon Leicester Square is the main venue for London’s star-studded film premieres, and is THE cinema for all the big blockbuster films. For a big-screen experience go to the BFI IMAX at Waterloo. The IMAX screen is the height of 5 double-deckers buses, and you can see a variety of 2D and 3D films. There's also the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill with it’s bar at the back of the cinema, comfortable leather seating and footstools, and a wide range of films to see.

    Music / Concerts

    With a capacity of 20,000, the O2 Arena is one of the largest indoor concert venues in Europe. The likes of Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Scissor Sisters, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Elton John and Take That have performed there, and you can check out the programme for the next few months here.  If jazz is your thing then go to the Jazz Café in Camden, or for ballet, dance, opera and classical music try the Royal Opera House.

    Sports / Games

    Football, rugby, cricket, tennis, racing, athletics…we could go on and on, but here is our pick of the most popular. The national football ground Wembley and national rugby stadium Twickenham are close by, where you can take a tour of the grounds or maybe see a game. Other famous sporting venues in the area include Lords Cricket Ground, Wimbledon tennis courts and the Ascot Racecourse. Of course, London is also hosting the Olympic Games in 2012 at Olympic Park.

    Theatre / Shows

    London is the perfect city for a theatre break. Recent London West End productions have included Billy Elliott, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Dirty Dancing, Phantom of the Opera, We Will Rock You and Mamma Mia! just to name a few. The Official London Theatre Guide should help you decide which ones to see.

    London Nightlife

    At night London is the place to party. Big clubs occupying railway arches, former theatres and factories, chic DJ Bars and cabaret clubs.  How about a meal in the award-wining Addendum Restaurant and Bar at the Apex City of London Hotel to start your evening in style?
