Soho is technically part of London’s West End within the city of Westminster. It was established as an entertainment district since the Victorian era, and had a rather seedy reputation through the 20th century that included prostitution and sex shops. It was redeveloped in the early 1980s as an upmarket district of restaurants and media offices. Currently it’s a small, multicultural area that includes entertainment venues as well as residences for many economic classes. A visit to the unpredictable Soho district should be a part of any London visit.

- Enjoy a drink and a jazz show at the historic Ronnie Scott’s, or visit one of the many other clubs for a taste of punk, rock, electronica, or any other kind of music you can move to!
- Shop for anything from sexy clothing to music to books in the square mile of London that contains Soho. Exploring is easy and fascinating in this bustling, self-contained area .
