I have walked it before but its a long way, its on the other side of the Thames. You're better of cathing a bus (which is about 25 minutes from what I can remember) or taking the tube.

The West End is very busy, imagine Market Street in Manchester on a busy saturday afternoon, now imagine a road 3 times longer than that you have Oxford Street. Just watch out for pickpockets!

Which theatre?

Best bet would be northern line to leicester sq from waterloo. Leicester sq is very near to "theatreland" where all of the main theatres are.

Have fun!

Me neither but its still a threat in any busy place, you have to careful like not go out showing your money off. The only time I nearly had a problem in London was when we ended up in Lambeth after the police let us across the bridge because the marches were on, we were not taking part.

25mins from Waterloo to West End??

its not even a mile away, personally I'd just get the bus from across the main road - they all go over the bridge to the Strand which is at the edge of the West End

I went to see Phantom for my 18th birthday. At that time the theatre was called Her Majesty's Theatre. It's very near Leicester Square.

You can just take the tube. It won't take long at all. I've walked for hours on end around London, exploring every road and generally just getting lost. It's the best way to learn where everything is.

Don't worry about pickpockets. It's not that bad as people think. Just don't be stupid enough to leave your pockets or handbags open because that is simply stupid and is like inviting the pickpockets to nick your things. I have never encountered a pickpocket in C.London before.

And, the West End ain't far from Waterloo. You just cross the bridge and then it's a few minutes more. Save yourself some money and just get the bus.

Bus 176 goes from waterloo to leicester square, easy.

takes about 15-25 minutes, depending on how busy the strand is. Me and my friends have walked it before, probably takes about the same amount of time and is nice as long as it's a warm day.

When going around the West End from Waterloo I always walk. It is a very atmospheric, picturesque and enjoyable walk. This Tuesday I walked from Waterloo across Hungerford Bridge, through Charing Cross and Trafalgar Square to Leicester Square and then Charing Cross Road before walking the entire length of Oxford Street.

Walk!

It will take you 20 minutes along the river - cross the river at the Old Hungerford Bridge - think it'a called the Jubilee Bridge now (by Festival Hall) - takes you to the far SW end of Cov.
