Travellers talk about
In contrast to other large multiplex-cinemas in Leicester Square, this is a little gem of a theater tucked away around the corner of the busy square, which shows cult classics and modern movies at reasonable prices.

This was my first visit to Prince Charles, but it looks like they always have different and interesting events/screenings going on rather than what they show at your run-of-the-mill standard cinemas.

This is a cult cinema in central London that frequently holds special events and shows classic films. Absolutely essential to visit if you like films. Membership is well worth it.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
