This competition is now closed. Please check back soon for the winners.

Particularly fond of the West End’s musical offerings? Or perhaps you love hipster-heaving east London? Either way, enter this competition and you could win a weekend in your favourite part of London.

I’m one of those people that’s torn between east and west London. I love size of the west: those huge landmarks that remind me every day that I live in one of the greatest cities in the world, the variety of theatre at my fingertips and the plethora foodie delights in Seven Dials and Soho. But I also love east London, with its gritty, somewhat industrial feel, the buzzing markets and its thriving arts scene. I wouldn’t know which to choose, but if you have a favourite, you’re in luck. Enter this competition for a chance to win a weekend in your favourite side of the city.
