Nestled in Westminster, Soho has transitioned from being a farmland in the 16th century to being an entertainment hub since the late 19th century in London. A go-to place in Central London, this place is an entanglement of cultures and history along with food, music, leisure and extravaganza. With a history dating back to the 17th century and for being popular in being soiled in sex, drugs and all sorts of notorious acts, Soho is now a more up-market and prominent place for people to have a good time.
The place has offices of Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount Pictures and Trident Studios, along with theatres, restaurants and clubs, making it a happening place for people to visit. A labyrinth of fashion streets, great eating joints and an amazing night life, Soho has been showing a good time to Londoners as well as foreigners. Having been home to people like Mozart and Karl Marx, the place is also infamous for being a red-light area, including sex shops, massage parlours, gay bars, and venues hosting burlesque shows.
Visit the Berwick street market for hogging on yummy street food and to pick up fresh fruits and veggies. It also has scores of places where one can shop for fashionable clothes and accessories. One can also visit Oxford Street and Regent Street for more shopping options, or Kingly Court and Carnaby Street for boutique stores.
Apart from feasting on some amazing open food stalls, Soho has some equally amazing dine-in and restaurant options.
