West End is a ward of the London borough of the City of Westminster, in the United Kingdom. The ward has existed since elections to Westminster City Council that took place on 4 May 1978. It is named for the West End of London, which covers a wider area. While it has a resident population of 10,000, its daytime population is around 250,000 due to the high number of businesses in the area.
Councillors elected by party at each general borough election.
There was a revision of ward boundaries in Westminster in 2002.
It lies in the east of the borough, and its boundaries broadly cover the neighbourhoods of Mayfair and Soho, the southern part of Fitzrovia, and the south-eastern corner of Marylebone. The boundary to the south with St James's ward is Shaftesbury Avenue, Piccadilly, and Hyde Park Corner. The boundary to the west with Knightsbridge & Belgravia Ward is Park Lane. The boundary to the north with Bryanston and Dorset Square ward is Oxford Street and with Marylebone High Street ward is Oxford Street, Vere Street, Henrietta Place, Cavendish Square, Harley Street, and New Cavendish Street. The boundary with the London Borough of Camden is Cleveland Street, Goodge Street, Charlotte Place, Rathbone Street, Charlotte Street, Rathbone Place, Gresse Street, Hanway Street, Tottenham Court Road and Charing Cross Road.
Like all other wards of Westminster, West End is represented by three councillors on Westminster City Council. The last election was held on 22 May 2014, when all three councillors were elected. They are all elected for the Conservative Party, for whom it has become a safe seat in recent years.
