NFT London St. James's

St. James's

Dignified, decadent, exclusive, Pall Mall and St. James's Street are where the aristobrats come out to play. With stuffy gentlemen's clubs, bespoke tailors, and the stale scent of a cigar-fuelled colonialist past pervading, you'll want to sweeten up with a macaroon at Laduree. Giro the Nazi Dog observes the liberals who get culture fixes at the ICA, but he can't come for scraps at Inn The Park.

I'm so ashamed. I call myself a Londoner, yet am guilty of one of the worst faux pas a local can commit. Until recently, like a country-dwelling rube working her way round the city by standing on the left of the escalators, I've been paying full price for theatre tickets. Paying full price for anything in London is only for the tourists and the disorganised, but even theatre owners don't expect anyone to pay full price for tickets. Knowing we'll try to get a discount whatever they charge, they set remortgage-necessitating rates, let us find our half price bargains, and still make a profit. So at last I discovered--long after most people, including every tourist to have ever visited Britain--the TKTS booth in Leicester Square. Run by the Society of London Theatre, the tickets are genuinely half price, and unless you pick a popular night or leave it to the last minute you'll likely get fabulous seats (mine: middle of row 7 for Avenue Q). You can only buy tickets in person and on the day, but check beforehand to see what's available.
