Leicester Square at night....
Unless you want to be ripped off, pickpocketed, surrounded by other tourists or stag nights and groped by paraletic city boys on a Friday night, then avoid Leicester Square. Also don't believe anyone who recommends the Hippodrome night club to you! It's possibly worth going there to catch a glimpse of celebs if there's a premiere going on, otherwise aviod it I reckon! Occasionally there's a decent funfair going on in the square in the summer.
If you really have to go there - the moon under water pub is cheap.
WATCH YOUR BAG! I've known of 2 people who have been pickpocketed at Leicester Square tube station and another friend had her bag stolen in the Hogshead pub just off Leicester Square, despite there being a large table of us thinking we were keeping a close eye on our belongings.
