Leicester Square is a pedestrianised area in the heart of London’s West End. It is considered the centre for London’s cinema and theatre attractions. Originally owned by the Abbey and Convent of Westminster Abbey, it went through the hands of King Henry VIII and was then purchased by Robert Sidney, 2nd Earl of Leicester. In 1635 he built himself a palatial residence on the land named, Leicester House. As the land developed it became a well heeled area and home to many notable tenants such as artists William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds. Leicester House, itself, became home to Fredrick, Prince of Wales.
Leicester Square started to deteriorate following the demolition of Leicester House in the late 18th century, becoming an entertainment and retail centre and also the home to a number of brothels. The square itself, considered public or ‘lammas’ land, has always remained public. By the 19th century, Leicester Square’s reputation as a popular entertainment centre grew as several major theatres were built there.
Through the 20th century many of the theatres were converted into cinemas and the square became a major tourist attraction. It’s location, being next to China Town, Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden makes it an incredibly busy area, almost entirely commercial and with very few people living there although the name Leicester Square is also applied to some of the surrounding streets.
There remain a few Georgian and Victorian buildings on the square, but most of the architecture is early 20th century. In 2016 over £200m was spent building a mixed use commercial and retail development called LSQ London on the west side of the square, maintaining the facades of a grand building called Communications House. Leicester Square is a place for fun, recreation and pleasure and a great place to spend some time with a sexy, charming and playful escort before enjoying more intimate moments in private.

Leicester Square Tube Station is on Charing Cross Road, a short walk from Leicester Square. Opened in 1906, its planned name was Cranbourne Street Station, but when it was built it was christened as Leicester Square. It was constructed above ground with lifts to take passengers to the underground service, but in the 1930s the station was updated and moved below ground with escalators instead. One of the lift shafts still does remain and serves as ventilation for the tube. When the escalators were constructed they were the longest in all of London’s stations until 1992 until the rebuilding of Angel Tube Station, which over took Leicester Square by 20ft.
