Tour description

*Not suitable for children under 14 years of age.

!Done the law done the snare!

From the legalization of piracy to Paul Raymond , going through the transformation of the brothels of the old red light district.

SOHO represents the revolution of the modern era reinventing the nude in theaters or giving the system a fight with the first communist manifesto.

  • We begin with the Opium War in Chinatown , going through the misadventures of the most womanizing English king at the origins of this old hunting ground. By the beginning of the 20th century, there was a mixture of restaurants of foreign origin, a fashionable place for intellectuals, writers, and artists.

  • We will pass by the famous Red Lion where Marx and Engels met to change the course of history.

  • We will tell the anecdotes of the famous Windmill Theater that opened a stage in Burlesque, dodging the censorship of the moment.

  • We will walk the streets of the most famous Gay neighborhood in the world remembering the King of SOHO, Paul Raymond, through the clubs that are still open.

  • We will talk about the rise of Sex Shops to the decline of Night Clubs, in an area that survived one of the toughest cholera pandemics, thanks to Dr. John Snow.

  • Rolling Stones or Jimi Hendrix will accompany us on this adventure in the heart of London, through the streets of the famous Carnaby Street, a symbol of the 70s .

  • We will finish in the temple that launched the acclaimed Beatles to fame: The Palladium Theatre, very close to Oxford Circus , where we will put the icing on the cake of our Tour.

If you dare, we can working OUT !!
