It has long been a central point of focus for those visiting London, and a meeting spot for friends.

I really liked the diversity of that place, it's one of my favourite places in London, maybe it's not that special to some people but it's fun

Now a days it is a pretty average looking place, not as we remembered it from long time ago. But always someone or a few busking and performing. Something for a first timer to tick off at least.

Its the place where we find young . old and tourists at any time. Get ur theater tickets or do shopping as you find great places to eat. A bit pricey in main shops. but local vendors are cheap. The night life, theatre and cafes bring up your spirits. Great place.

What can I say, it's one of the best parts of London, busy both day and night, great seeing acts and just watching a busy world go by.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
