Shaftesbury Avenue

London, England

For a bit of dramatic flair, head to Shaftesbury Avenue in central London. Take your pick of theatrical productions: Les Miserables at Queen’s Theatre, Anthony and Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the Apollo Theatre, to name a few. The avenue was also a film location for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- film buffs will recall Hermione Granger saying that her parents often took her to one of the avenue’s famed theaters in her youth.
