Help a London theater noob

Going to London shortly, would like to see interesting theater. I know about Donmar Warehouse and the National Theater. Where else should I look? Is the Globe legit in terms of performance quality, or is it really just for tourists? [more inside]

Entertainment at night, Central Hackney/Dalston (& environs (London UK))

Hello again, and thanks for all the help in the previous two Dalston/Hackney threads I posted. This one's easy, and I'd be willing to take the public transpo: what kinda stuff is there to do during the nighttime in London? I mean, I know—"everything"—but to narrow it down a bit... [more inside]

Museums and diversions near Hackney Central/Dalston, London

Hey there! I'm going to be staying in London for seven days at the end of the month—specifically in Central Hackney, and travelling to Dalston for a few of the days. To fill in the gaps where I don't have anything scheduled, my "plan" is to walk around randomly, in whatever direction, and poke my nose into whatever looks interesting. Please name some diversions within a three-mile-radius of Hackney/Dalston should aim for. I like fun things! [more inside]

If I'm at a tourist hotel, probably near Covent Garden (but possibly closer to like St Paul's?) and I need to catch a morning flight from LGW or LHR, is it worth the extra money to fly BA out of LHR rather than Easyjet or Wizz out of LGW? BONUS QUESTIONS INSIDE! [more inside]

Where to set up base for brief London visit?

turtlegirl and I are going to hike a section of the Cotswolds in June then visit with some friends (Hereford and Devon) before heading to London a few days before our flight home. We want to get a room somewhere which will allow us to get to Heathrow (relatively) easily, BUT we also want to be able to get into the city for a few meetups with London-based friends. [more inside]

Recommend a Paddington, London Area Hotel

In September, I’ll be meeting a friend in London, where we’ll share a room for three nights before heading to his home on the south coast. It’s not that we’ll be hanging out in the room except to sleep, but I want it to be nice and am thinking I will be able to get that by spending something in the area of £250-300 per night. A few snowflakes within. [more inside]

London neighborhoods

I need help choosing a London neighborhood to stay in. One of my tripmates is a first time world traveler so I want things to be perfect! The ideal neighborhood would be: charming/beautiful/quintessentially London, with lots of informal/unpretentious but good food options, close to a reasonably accessible tube station (some steps are fine but not an excessive amount). And ideally, an easy no-transfer tube ride away from a fun neighborhood where the rock music lover can escape a few nights after everyone else goes to bed (I was thinking Brixton but am open to suggestions).

Where to eat dinner today in London with kids near the London Eye?

We are going to the London Eye this afternoon for a treat and want to eat really well afterward in a place with great atmosphere that actually has availability-- with 2 kids. It is a treat so fancy is OK if kid-friendly. Walking distance would be great but can also take bus or Tube. Any suggestions? Thanks!
