Whether championing specially designed products from our best British retailers, experiencing one-off exhibitions in honour of HM Queen Elizabeth II or exploring the West End's cultural landmarks from streets Her Majesty herself has trodden, we are all set up for visitors to join the birthday celebrations throughout the remainder of 2016."
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "Over Her Majesty's lifetime, the area in which she was born has evolved into one of the most exciting places to be on the planet. London's vibrant West End is a vital contributor to the capital's economy, creating jobs and attracting tourists from around the world.
