Coming out from deep alpha
Today we want to introduce you featured guide around London from our partner. And one of its Points Of Interest, called Leicester Square. Read POI description further and stay tuned on http://guide4.me/

Leicester Square is London's Broadway, but not because of a similarity to the fashionable street in New York, but because it is a meeting place for the "golden youth" of the British capital. They say that younger members of the royal family can also be seen here occasionally.

This is also where the first evidence of impartiality and fairness of English legal proceedings took place. In 1645, Robert Sidney, the 2nd Earl of Leicester (hence the name of the square) purchased this land. Having built a house in this location, the somewhat extensive surrounding area was walled in with a fence. Londoners who liked to walk here rebelled, and the matter was taken to the court which, in turn, ordered Sir Sidney to dismantle the fencing and restore people's ability to walk through the square. It is significant that the decision of the court was obeyed without complaint.

For more than two centuries Leicester Square has been a popular place for both residents and guests of London. Many say that it is especially nice here in the late afternoon dusk, when the sidewalks are full of well-dressed people and the combination of the soft light of advertising signs with the street lighting creates an unforgettable picture. However, it is just as pleasant here in the afternoon, when there are no less people than usual, and you can look at the monuments of Shakespeare and Charlie Chaplin, and the clock crowning the facade of the Swiss theater. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the whole performance of the clock and its mechanical figures.

If you want to visit one of the theaters of the West End, in Leicester Square there is a ticket desk where the tickets for evening performances are sold at half price from 2 to 6 PM.
