Help! Sunday night in London - need ideas

I will be in London on a Sunday night. What would be fun to do? Hard to find things that are open.

Most everything in the West End/Covent Garden areas will be open.

Here are a couple walks going on:

Guess I should clarify - some shops may be open in those areas early evening, but there should be pubs and restaurants open.

I'm sure that there are establishments in Soho that are open...24 hours, probably.

There's loads to do in central London on a Sunday night! (Any night, actually.) Have a look at Time Out's new 101 best things to do in London guide...there's loads of ideas in that to keep you going. Restaurants, pubs, theatres, clubs:

The main problem on Sundays is that many theatres are closed. However there are a number that do have performances - but some will be matinee (afternoon) only.

Do what a Londoner would do – pick up a copy of the magazine TimeOut London when you arrive – there will be literally thousands of things going on that night.

alanRow - I don't want to be picky, but if you actually look at the link you posted [same as mine above] you will see that there are 42 theatres open on a sunday.

I would say that "many theatres are open"

or, as i also said already, there's always Soho.
