The Strand runs from Trafalgar Square and Charing Cross to Fleet Street and the Aldwych. Lying in the City of Westminster, London, it runs (as the name suggests) parallel to the River Thames. Covent Garden lies to the north of it. At the eastern end, two churches - St Mary-le-Strand and St Clement Danes stand on islands in the middle of the road. King's College London is the huge concrete block on the south side of the road outside St Mary's, opposite Bush House. Several theatres are found here, including the Savoy, along with some fine restaurants such as Simpson's, Salieri and Paradiso e Inferno.
