Map of London Leicester Square tube station

This is the heart of London's West End, which means it's usually full of tourists. There are several large cinemas, including the Odeon Leicester Square, which usually shows big films before anywhere else in Britain, though if you can afford to wait a week, they'll be cheaper elsewhere.

The best thing about Leicester Square is Haggen Daas - they have a large restaurant here serving nothing but ice cream cocktails.

The second best thing about Leicester Square is the Moon Under Water - a large pub on the east side of the square.

Probably the worst thing about Leicester Sq is the clock on the Swiss Centre.

Probably the second worse this about Leicester Sq is the tourists pronouncing the name "Lie-sess-ter" Square - it's actually pronounced "Lester" Square.
