Top ways to experience Soho Square
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    Nice little green space
    This is a pleasant little green space within Soho. There is an historic, quaint, black and white building in the centre of the grass area. A good place to sit and take a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of central London.

    Very nice small park
    Soho Square is a very nice small park with an attractive selection of trees. It is popular for people to come and rest on the seating or grass. Some play areas are there for children plus a small table tennis area. An interesting small and old building is in the centre like a park office. The park also very popular with pigeons.

    Little oasis
    Quiet spot from the noise and excitement of Oxford Street. Quaint little building - built to disguise some electricity substation originally I think. Statue of Charles II restored in the 1930s. Nice location of green and a variety of trees to escape the busy bustle of London.

    The Kirsty MacColl Experience
    Nice quiet little park with plenty benches. Well, quiet not counting the shouting match with a giant challenged man and a much smaller man over a game of ping pong... I did find the bench for Kirsty MacColl. If you haven't heard of her, do a search and listen. Literally gave her life for her children.

    Nice little oasis just south of Oxford Street
    London has lots of small parks, but most are closed to the public. Soho Square (created in the late 1670s) has been a public park since 1954 and in instantly recognisable by the mock "market cross" building (built c.1926) in its centre which hides an electricity substation. Also, towards the center of the square is a statue of Charles II. Below the square, that taking up almost the whole area of the square, is a 200-person air-raid shelter that had been abandoned since the end of WW2.

Soho Square is just a short walk from Oxford Street. It is a small square but very busy. Many people visit from somewhere to sit and chill out and also to go and have some lunch.

It's well tended and a nice place to sit when the weather is good.

Tucked away from the shopping Loondon experience is the charming Soho Square, well maintained garden with a mock Tudor hut its almost a 100 years old, but worth discovering.

Was in the Capital on a site seeing visit which I often do, and much familiar with London and its many interesting history, this little Gem of a rest area had escaped my wanderings, This small Park dates back to 1681 and was originally called King Square after Charles II, whose statue stands in the square. In the centre of the garden, stands a distinctive half-timbered gardener's hut. Apparently in the summer months, it hosts some open-air free concerts. The square contains garden and flower beds and has many wooden bench seating where you can relax or eat a packed lunch which many were doing while I was there. The Soho Square garden has a bench that commemorates the late singer Kirsty MacColl, who wrote the song "Soho Square" which was on her album Titanic Days. After her death in 2000, fans subscribed for a memorial bench to honour her memory inscribing the lyrics: "One day I'll be waiting there / No empty bench in Soho Square". On a less sombre note I enjoyed my seated rest there away from the City bustle for a time

Nice quiet place just off Oxford Street to rest and have picnic lunch. They have recently planted some great looking banana trees which add a new look. Its preferable to go here when quiet as it can get a little busy and sometimes intimidating, especially in hot weather and evening times. See it for what it is the gateway to Soho!

Was nice for my family to have a seat in before shopping and it had table tennis tables that we could use to sit on too however this isn’t a special place or anything.

We walked through here on the way for Oxford Street and Regent Street.

It is a lovely little green space in Soho and the centre price is the old build in the middle. This square is very busy all times of year as a meeting place, walk way or place to sit and watch the world go by.

Check out the statue of King Charles too.
