Tour description

Done the law done the snare!

SOHO is synonymous with revolution in the modern era. The place where the nude was reinvented in theaters and they challenged the system with the first communist manifesto.

I will take you to know the ins and outs of the Opium War in Chinatown and we will uncover the shame of the most womanizing English king.

  • We will pass by the famous Red Lion , the historic pub where Marx and Engels met to change the course of history over pints. And very thoughtful conversations, I have no doubt.
  • We will make a stop at the legendary Windmill Theater , which opened a new stage in the world of Burlesque, cleverly avoiding the censorship of the time with its daring and provocative performances.
  • We will walk through the streets of the most famous gay neighborhood in the world, remembering the King of SOHO, Paul Raymond . We will talk about the rise of sex shops and the decline of night clubs in an area that survived one of the most devastating cholera pandemics thanks to the tenacity of Dr. John Snow.

The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix will be our traveling companions as we walk the iconic streets of Carnaby Street, the symbol of the 70s. There fashion and music intertwined to create a completely new culture.

🏁The end of this path will be the legendary Palladium Theatre , near Oxford Circus , where The Beatles set out to conquer the world from the heart of London.

We can work it OUT!
