Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
Known for its population of tipsy writers, artists, and poets in the mid-20th century, Soho is London's historic Bohemian district. The music scene in the area began in 1948, and the dive bars welcomed the newest music acts throughout the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1980s, the neighborhood underwent a major transformation and became a hub of high-end boutiques and creative-industry offices. Well-groomed streets are lined with stores and restaurants, where you can lounge with a cocktail among London's hippest locals. Plan your visit to Soho and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our London tour itinerary planner.
