Soho Hotel, London
Piccadilly Circus


Soho is without doubt London at its most vibrant. Packed into one square mile within central London, Soho contains a colourful mixture of homes, shops, restaurants, pubs and churches. Soho has an unmistakably cosmopolitan identity which has resulted from the influences of generations of European immigrants.

The squares, streets and alleyways of Soho are lined with an array of restaurants, pubs, cafés and wine bars. Within the Soho district is Chinatown, the cultural centre of the UK's Chinese community. The Chinatown district is very lively with an excellent variety of restaurants and bars. Soho is one part of London not to be missed by those looking to experience the diverse cultures of this great city.
