Leicester Square re-opens – 24 May 2012

Having spent the last six years, whilst in London, working directly on Leicester Square (much of the time with a window view overlooking the Square and all its premieres etc.), I have to say that I am very pleased to see that the £15m upgrade project has finally been finished.

Not surprisingly, it’s about two months late (I say not surprisingly, as it took the best part of six months for them to lay a few paving slabs outside our office, causing massive disruption), but I have to tip my hat off to them – the last time I was actually in Leicester Square at the end of January 2012, it looked nothing at all like the pictures below, and in fact was pretty horrific / still a massive building site.

I’m chuft that, by random chance, I am back at HQ tomorrow, so I’ll get to see the shiny new Leicester Square in all its new glory for myself tomorrow, after the Mayor officially opens it this evening.
