Welcome to Soho, an area synonymous with music, art, sex, fashion, fun and liberty for centuries. It's on these streets where the most famous names have walked, from Cassanova to Hendrix, Karl Marx to the Rolling Stones. The whole area is awash with colour and character, and on this tour you will peel back its layers to discover the most intriguing stories behind its past and present.
As we wander past cafes, bars, sex shops and fashion outlets, you'll be bamboozled by the vibrancy of the scene. For fans of rock n roll, you'll discover the studios where Bowie, Queen and The Beatles recorded, peer across Soho Square to Paul McCartney's office, and for fans of art you'll love the wonderful array of art adorning the buildings all around you. From brightly coloured pigeons, to murals and space invaders, there is so much to see, but for the icing on the cake, we will show you four of the mysterious Seven Noses of Soho!
Soho's history is so much more than music and art though, with its long history of invention and rule breaking. So along the way you'll see where bodies used to be dissected, the house of a notorious artist, lodgings of Soho's whackiest scientist and the grave of a forgotten king.
