After what seems like FOREVER..the new look Leicester Square is set to be unveiled this week. And as it’s no small occasion, Her Majesty The Queen will be officially re-opening it in person on the 19th.
£15million has been spent on the regeneration of one of London’s most famous areas – giving it a much-needed facelift and making it worthy of the many film premieres and events that take place in the square throughout the year.
We’re looking forward to seeing the changes for ourselves. Having grown up with the ‘old Leicester Square, it’s interesting to see just how much has changed.
If you want to be one of the first to see what it looks like on Friday, we have some good news for you.The Penthouse, the tallest building on the square, is opening it’s doors for free for the day, so you can enjoy the view from it’s 180º balcony…and enjoy a drink or 3.
