    The last of the old mod shops and now closed and Carnaby St (or Carnaby as it is now called to encompass Ganton St and Foubert Place) is now full of High Street shops like Barbour, Dr Martins, etc.

    Nice enough for a stroll but if you’re looking for history do t bother.

    You can find so many stores along Oxford Street from Marble Arch. It is a paradise for shoppers. All the major stores you need are here!

    A Beautiful building.
    I saw Beauty and the Beast which was fantastic in everyway.

    Lighting and special effects were brilliant.

    Be mindful of the steep steps.
    Also if you have any sight impairment.
    Staff were helpful and ice cream was card only payment.

    Not far from Liberty.Enjoy.

    The Mary Poppins production is somewhat modified from the original production but still magical with brilliant choreography. I am not sure who played Mary Poppins on Friday night Sept 16th 2022. She was excellent in all that she did
    and recieved a thunderous ovation from the audience at curtain call. I loved Louis Gaunt as Bert
    a true song and dance man with bountiful charm.Also Charlie Anson as George Banks, Amy Griffiths as Winifred Banks and surprisingly Cian Eagle-Service as Michael Banks always with spot on reactions to everything and also always quite humorous . Liz Robertson makes a terrific and terrorizing Miss Smythe/ Miss Andrew grand and operatic and totally memorable. The dancing is first rate and Step in Time is a good old fashioned showstopper!

    Stalls N18. Good seat. As you can see, even with people directly in front the stage is clearly visible - even better when they faced forward to watch the show. Arm rests are rather hard but otherwise comfortable.

    The theatre decor and ambiance is spectacular. The show itself was incredible and my friends and I were blown away by it. So much so we'll be visiting again (different seats)

    The massive annoyance which actually hindered the experience, throighout by not being able to fully concentrate on the show, we were sat in the stalls area T 3,4 and 5 (near the door entrance)
    The staff were in and out, in and out, and they were not quiet or respectful about it either. All throughout the show. Plus whilst the show was on and the doors were closed, you could hear the loud cackling from some on the staff behind the doors. Not professional at all!!!

    Beautiful traditional theatre in the west end, we visited to see Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird which was brilliant.

    I went to see Get Up Stand Up at the Lyric. I had two tickets for the stalls row K. On arriving at the theatre with my guest who has mobility problems and uses a walking stick the theatre staff opened a side door to ensure she did not have to walk up the steps. There are 20 steps down to the stalls. The young lady helping us offered to change our seats to avoid the stair. Our seats were swapped to the dress circle. The service was fantastic, very thoughtful and attentive. Thank you Lyric staff.

    Great venue for small theatre space events. The seating is well laid out and a decent view from all seats. Always something different and caters for all tastes in entertainment. Tickets are very well priced. The bar is buzzy and decent choice of drinks at fair prices. Staff are always well organised. Well worth subscribing as always something interesting on.

    A fantastic little gem for enthusiasts just off Oxford Circus. It’s great value as it is free for under 19 and £5 for non concessions. We went when there was 3 exhibitions on 5 floors. My teenage daughter was in her element. It is very cool. There is a cafe with light snacks and salads. We booked an hour slot as the venue is quite small so it wouldn’t take long to be at capacity. There is also a shop selling mainly books and prints. We spent just under an hour and had a cooling drink in the cafe.

    Beautiful little place to sit and enjoy a drink or two and watch the world go by. Very busy when we went in August, but managed to find a spot to watch the world go by from.

    This pretty little garden square, tucked away behind Regent Street and well-removed from the heavy tourist footfall of Soho, is a delight to visit, and it also has a fascinating history. It started life in the 1670, on the site of a former plague pit (a mass-burial site for victims of the Black Death); it is said that Sir Christopher Wren may have laid down the square.

    The name ‘Golden Square’ is believed to originate from Gelding Close which referred to land being used for horse grazing. The area gained fame in the 1700s as the home of many foreign diplomatic envoys from countries as Poland, Portugal, Genoa, and Russia. A number of famous people, real and fictional (such as Ralph Nickelby, whose dingy house in Charles Dicken’s 1839 novel 'Nicholas Nickelby' was in the square), have lived in houses around the square. An air raid shelter was dug under Golden Square during the Second World War and the iron fence was taken for salvage.

    Today it’s a peaceful little square, mostly paved and flat, with some mature trees such as maples and crab apples, and raised flower beds which were filled with spring bulb showstoppers such as tulips. In the middle of the square is a weathered statue of George II. Keeping him company were some fabulous modern sculptures. On a pedestal there’s the green worm-like sculpture called (appropriately yet mysteriously) ’Lockdown 2020’ by dollyolli.com . And you cant’t miss the huge metallic corset and bra. Designed by Kalliopi Lemos from the Gazelli Art House in Mayfair, the pieces were part of the City of Sculpture programme in 2020. They are wonderful but they drew criticism from residents’ group ‘The Soho Society’ who said: "This proposal is presenting an image of Soho that is dated and sexist." Soho was once a red-light district, and the haunt of prostitutes. Fortunately they were put in situ. They remind me a bit of Madonna’s bra and corset, and add considerable jolliness and frivolity to the square.

    There’s plenty of seating in the square, and it’s a popular spot with locals and the crowds that spill out of nearby offices at lunchtime. To me it’s a little haven of peace away from the madding tourist crowds, and a perfect spot to rest the weary feet. It's a short walk from Carnaby Street, and midway between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus underground stations. It's suitable for those needing mobility assistance.

    Just don’t tell everyone about it, please.
