  1. Aldwych

    Aldwych (pronounced AWLD-witch) is a one-way street and the name of the area immediately surrounding it in central London, England, within the City of Westminster. The 450 m street starts 600 m ENE of Charing Cross, the conventional map centre-point of the city. The area, unlike the adjoining Temple area, participated in the county of Middlesex until 1965. It forms part of the A4 road from London to Avonmouth, Bristol. The Aldwych area forms part of the Northbank business improvement district. It is known for hotels, restaurants, two theatres, the High Commissions of India and Australia and in closed amenities for its associated Underground station on the related section of the Strand (the return of the crescent) posing as an active tube station in films and television shows; marking the east end of the street and in the middle of the crescent return are Grade I architecturally listed churches designed by Wren and Gibbs. Immediately north-east of St Clement Danes (St Clements) is the complex of courts which includes the Court of Appeal of England and Wales, the Royal Courts of Justice.
