Named for the 2nd Earl of Leicester, London’s Leicester Square is at the heart of the city’s prime entertainment district. The square is embellished with several monuments including a fountain dedicated to Shakespeare.
The square is car-free and can be very crowded, especially on weekend evenings. It is often the starting point for people who want to visit one of the many cinemas, theaters, snack bars and restaurants that are in the neighborhood.
Situated in an area that was once part of a 1.6 hectare (4 acres) tract owned by Robert Sidney, the 2nd Earl of Leicester, Leicester Square was open to the public around 1640 after locals protested the privatization of the land that was once common ground.
Several major cinemas line the square, giving it its nickname “Theatreland”. Visitors will also find a “TKTS” half-price ticket booth here, where discount tickets can be purchased for popular West End shows and musicals. A handful of TV and radio stations also have their headquarters at Leicester Square.
