The Basics

Covering just one square mile (2.6 square kilometers), Soho is best explored on foot. Taste your way around Soho’s diverse food scene on chocolate tours, English tea and dessert tours, modern British food tours, or excursions featuring international cuisine. Walk in the footsteps of The Beatles on Abbey Road and learn about the city’s other rock ‘n’ roll legends, or visit the area’s best-loved pubs and brewhouses on a bar-hopping tour. If history is your thing, Soho walking tours offer an education on London’s hidden gems and historic artifacts.

The Bowie's Soho Walking Tour
Excellent tour! We had a fantastic time on this tour, even despite the cold and wet weather. Aidan is an extremely knowledgeable as well as entertaining tour guide. Really enjoyed learning about so many hidden gems and old haunts in SoHo and their importance to the musician we all know and love. Would highly recommend for any Bowie or music fans!

The Soho Experience - London Pub Walking Tour
Our guide, Steve, was fantastic. We are frequent visitors to London and still managed to learn so much. He even hung around to talk football with us after the tour ended. Such a great experience.

Soho Music & Historic Pubs Tour
We had Linton and he was a phenomenal guide! We were in a good sized group and he went out of his way to include everyone. We ended up going out for dinner and drinks with some of the other guests too. Was awesome.

Pub Tour of London's West End: Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Soho
Our guide was attentive, friendly and full of lots of historical knowledge about the pubs in London, as well as the process of beer making. The only downside is that one of the pubs required that a person be age 21 to enter despite the drinking age being 18. The pub did finally allow my son to enter with the group but it was a bit embarrassing.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Bring your rain gear as London is known for its unpredictable downpours.

  • As you walk around Soho, look out for noses on the buildings and walls (known as “the seven noses of Soho”). According to local legend, good luck comes your way if you spot them all.

  • Be prepared for crowds. Soho can get busy, especially around lunchtime.

  • Kingly Court near Carnaby Street offers free Wi-Fi, a station to refill your water bottles, and a seating area for dining alfresco.

How to Get There

Set in Central London in the middle of the West End, Soho is easy to visit via guided tour or public transportation. Travel by bus or tube (subway) to any of these stations that are close to Soho: Leicester Square, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, or Tottenham Court Road. If you plan to stay in London for several days, it’s a good idea to pick up a visitor Oyster card. Driving is not recommended as this area is very busy and there can be limited parking.

When to Get There

Soho is thriving day and night. To avoid crowds, visit mid-morning on a weekday to miss commuters on the tube and beat the lunchtime rush at restaurants. The place comes alive at night, so be sure to check out some bars, comedy clubs, and live music venues like Ronnie Scott’s.

Shopping in Soho

Soho is a bustling shopping district—the department store Liberty is a London institution and if you’re traveling with kids, be sure to visit the famous toy shop Hamleys. For boutiques, go to Berwick Street, Carnaby Street and Kingly Court, and for flagship stores, go to Oxford Street and Regent Street. If you love chocolate, don’t miss the Paul A. Young store on Wardour Street.
