I pass through the Grade II listed Brunswick Centre which contains a cinema, shops and flats. On the other side of the Brunswick Centre is Russell Square tube station.
Russell Square to Holborn
I pass the slightly scary looking Hotel Russell and take a detour around Russell Square. The tall building is Senate House, belonging to the University of London and designed by Charles Holden who designed many of the tube stations at the Cockfosters end of the Piccadilly line.
Holborn to Covent Garden
I head towards Covent Garden. The Covent Garden area is home to many theatres such as these ones showing The Lord of the Rings and The Woman in Black.
Covent Garden to Leicester Square
I first walk along Long Acre passing the Channel 5 building. I then take a slight diversion through St. Martin’s Court where you can find the theatre showing Avenue Q. If you are in the area Cecil Court is also worth walking down as it has many unusual shops.
Leicester Square to Piccadilly Circus
Leicester Square is where some of London’s biggest and most expensive cinemas are. It is where many of London’s film premiers take place.
Piccadilly Circus to Green Park
Along Piccadilly are Fortnum & Mason, Burlington House and The Ritz.
