We went to see "Big Fish" and didn't have high expectations but really enjoyed it. Needless to say never enough ladies loos especially when the two theatres had their intervals overlapping. A good sized bar.

Visited September 2016. We ate dinner at the restaurant and saw the Pianist of Willesden Lane. There is no bad seat in the theater and the acoustics are perfect. The seats are a tad uncomfortable though. A marvelous time we had though.

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

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
