London Soho Guided Walking Tour

ToursSightseeing ToursTheme ToursMusic ActivitiesCulture & HistoryHistory & HeritageFood & DrinksShows & MusicalsFamily-friendlyLGTBQI Friendly

London’s not all about kings, queens, and museums, and nowhere is this clearer than in the Soho district. See where counterculture and civil protests have collided over the centuries as you discover the streets of this lively neighbourhood.

Highlights

  • See the lights of Piccadilly Circus
  • Learn about the LGBT movement
  • Shop on Carnaby street
  • Eat authentic food in Chinatown

Description

Your tour of Soho will take you through Piccadilly Circus, the Time Square of London, and through a maze of streets leading to Chinatown. In between, you’ll discover the hub of musical revolutions including the venue where Jimi Hendrix first performed in the city. Music buffs will delight to discover the spot where the term “Beatlemania” was coined, and where hits like “Bohemian Rhapsody” were recorded. Beyond music, you’ll discuss the women’s suffrage movement at Golden Square. A deadly cholera outbreak is the topic of choice on Broad Street, where you’ll hear about the original John Snow. Stroll Greek Street to hear how Soho influenced former residence, Karl Marx. At Soho Square, you’ll learn about some of the district’s earliest nobility, often eclipsed by the current tenants, the lively LGBT community who congregate at local bars. End up in Chinatown, where you’ll momentarily forget you’re in London and relax over a plate or three of dumplings before hitting up Soho’s energetic nightlife.
