About the tour
When it comes to the most famous and fashionable districts in London, nothing screams “sex, drugs, and rock and roll” like the sparkling district of Soho, which has been a popular area for musicians, writers, and bohemians since the mid-19th century. So why not join us on our new Soho Walking Tour to find out more about London's most fascinating neighborhood?
Not only will you hear more about the likes of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, and their relevance to Soho, but we’ll also cover more taboo topics like prostitution and the history of Soho's sex industry. Learn about Karl Marx and explore the area where he used to live during the late 1800s or the building where he and Friedrich Engles wrote the Communist Manifesto.
Hear about the place where the first miniskirt was cut, in Carnaby Street, which was the second most popular tourist attraction in London during the 1960’s. Or visit the place where the term Beatlemania was coined after the Liverpool lads had their first ever gig in London. For no other place in the world has influenced Pop culture as much as this tiny, strange, busy hectic, mad neighbourhood in Central London.
