West End shows at Cambridge Theatre

One of London's most renowned West End playhouses, the Cambridge Theatre sits just off Seven Dials in the centre of charming Covent Garden. Built in 1929 in refined expressionist style, today the theatre is home to leading shows, including its longest-running, Matilda the Musical which has been playing for almost seven years. After the show, head into Soho, a few minutes' walk away, for atmospheric bars and pubs.

Monuments and museums in central London

Cambridge Theatre is just a 7-minute walk from Trafalgar Square, home to some of the capital's most popular and most historic landmarks. Gaze up at Nelson's Column, where the hero of Trafalgar looks southwards towards Whitehall and the Palace of Westminster. On the square itself you'll find the elegant National Portrait Gallery, housing world-famous paintings, including the Chandos Portrait of William Shakespeare.

A full day out on Fulham Road
