Restaurant Recommendation Near Duke of York Theatre

by bobbialf

Hello! We are four adults from Houston, Texas coming to London (our 2nd Christmas visit - we came last year as well.) We have tickets to Twelfth Night at the Duke of York Theatre on the evening of 23/12/09. We were hoping to get a recommendation for a good restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner - nothing that's going to break the bank, mind you, but something nice. I assume I'll need to make a reservation before we leave home on the 16th. Also, we would appreciate some advice as to the dress code for the theatre. Since suitcase space is at a premium, we hope it's not too formal. Thanks very much!

Dress code..... there is none! People wear anything from posh to scruffy! Neat, clean and decent, I would say.

As to a pre-theatre dinner - the Duke of York theatre is right in the middle of the theatre district, off Leicester Square. I cannot really recommend anything, as I tend to eat out of that area but perhaps one way to go is to google "pre theatre restaurants" or something and then the sites that come up will be divided into areas. Then you can choose something in the vicinty. One of the sites is londoneating.

I can only advise on dress code: theatres do not have any such thing nowadays, apart from first nights in major venues, perhaps. The Duke of York has no dress code

So wear what you feel comfortable in. You may feel a bit uncomfortable if you are too sloppy, so perhaps think 'smart casual'(you'll probably feel uncomfortable if you are too smart as well). Aim for the middle ground.

I agree with the above. As for restaurants, there are a number of recommendations on my home page. If you like seafood, an excellent one nearby is J.Sheekey. Less expensive pre-theatre dinner deals are often available at this and other restaurants: check details on sites like www.toptable.com (or is it .co.uk?). You have to register, but it's free, and reliable. Enjoy!

Waterloo sunset.

by mwe

Go to London in September. On a sunny late-summer's evening go to Waterloo station and get on the Reading-bound 18:35 train.
Doesn't matter if all the seats are taken: you'll see more if you stand!

The trains in & out of Waterloo have great views of London. You'll see the Thames with the sun low in the sky to your left.

You'll see small, cottage-style terraced houses on streets almost surrounded by railway lines!

Even in southwest London there are level crossings & people cycling home waiting at the barriers.

People usually talk about things like taking a train across Canada when they talk about great railway journeys. A commuter train out of Waterloo on a sunny September evening is just as interesting: I know, I've done both!

The British Museum: The Rosetta Stone

by pili

The Rosetta Stone is a stone with writing on it in two languages (Egyptian and Greek), using three scripts (hieroglyphic, demotic and Greek)
The Rosetta Stone was carved in 196 B.C..
and was found in 1799, by French soldiers who were rebuilding a fort in Egypt.-

La Piedra Rosetta es una piedra escrita en dos lenguas (egipcio y griego) usando tres tipos de escritura (jeroglífico, popular y griega).
La Piedra Rosetta fue tallada en el año 196 A.C. y fue encontrada en 1799, por soldados franceses que estaban reconstruyendo un fuerte en Egipto

Thames Festival

by tinyvulture

We were lucky that our visit coincided with the Thames Festival, held each September. For an entire weekend, free, family-friendly entertainment is provided along the banks of the Thames, including treet performers, musicians, and art installations. Stalls are set up, selling food and crafts. On the last night, there is a big parade along Victoria Embankment and crossing Blackfriars Bridge, followed by fireworks. Some of the floats are really amazing!

To my North American brethren,...

by DesertRat

To my North American brethren, when traveling in the UK, please keep your voices down unless you are in a pub or a club. This is especially true in restaurants. Nothing annoys the British more than to hear and understand a conversation going on three tables away.

Also, don't wear white socks unless you're off to play tennis or cricket.
