Charing Cross is a junction in London where six separate routes meet. It's quaint side street area contains a wide variety of eateries and quirky shops. There's plenty to see and do, and dining for many different styles and tastes.

Restaurants, shops and theatres, but not as many book stores as there were in its glory days (my main reason for visiting this street!), but still worth a wander about. I particularly enjoyed "Any amount of books" and of course had to go into Foyles...More

Exciting location in the middle of West End/Theatreland. Worth exploring and checking out the side streets for interesting shops or places to eat. My favourite side street is Cecil Court for various model and book shops.

A great street for the buzz. Take some time to look at the shops of the east side between st martins in the field and Cambridge Circus, some absolute gems. People forget how much there is here as it’s used as a commuter passage.

Not finding an individual listing for above currency exchange, we are using Charing Cross Road as entry. Unless you are desperate for pounds, walk miles anywhere, to Bloomsbury, to Oxford Road Marks and Spencer, to the Embankment etc, but avoid this particular exchange bureau. It's...More

This street is coming back to life now that the development of Crossrail is coming to a conclusion. It looks like it's about to take a major step forward as a rail hub at the centre of the city.

Close to Trafalgar Square, Charing Cross Road is a bustling street with restaurants and shops. The underground station is a busy transport hub and gets very busy at peak times.

Not the most inspiring part of London, but if you can explore off the main drag there are some interesting book and independent shops. The Waterstones opposite Trafalgar Square is possibly the worst branch I’ve visited. Understaffed and the ladies’ toilet was so filthy and...More

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
