London Venues Overview

Lyceum Theatre - Theater in London

To see and experience all the events and entertainment venues in London, you would probably need a lifetime – and no, that is not an exaggeration.

For starters there are the famous music spots: Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, and HMV Forum to name a few. Of course there are hundreds of smaller venues as well where the stars of tomorrow are all breaking their bones to become the next big thing.

Next are all the London venues dedicated to sports. The city is host to a number of football teams who play at stadiums all over London, but in addition to Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge, there’s the Lord’s Cricket Ground (you guessed it – for Cricket), Adams Park and others for Rugby, The All England Tennis Club which has hosted Wimbledon since 1877, and of course Wembley Stadium which is where the country’s national football team matches are held.

Music and sports are just the tip of the iceberg, though. There’s this little area you may have heard about called the West End – this is home to London’s theater district (I mean, Shakespeare performed here), where theaters big and small, historic and new, put on the biggest shows on the brightest stages. And for others with equally discerning taste, there’s no shortage of music halls for opera and the symphony either.

But if being refined doesn’t excite you, London provides a multitude of other venues and nightlife areas to satiate any party appetite all over the city.
