Sample Itinerary

Step Back into 1950s Soho
Opened by the Polledri family in 1949, Bar Italia soon became a social hub for Italian immigrants in London by selling cappuccinos before people most British people knew what they were. We’ll sit down for one for an introduction to this electric and buzzing neighborhood.

Take in Beautiful Soho Square
Visit a beautiful 17th-century square celebrating Charles II, the “merry monarch” and the biggest fan of Soho’s theatre scene (and its actresses, whom he finally allowed onstage to play women’s roles).

See the Jazz Clubs and Music Bars
Whether it’s Amy Winehouse or Jimmy Hendrix, Soho’s music scene has seen it all. Let us show you the hidden dive bars and quirky cafes where music history was made.

Spot the Street Art
Spot some of the famous “seven noses of Soho” with your guide, who will bring to life London’s street art scene.

Understand Soho’s Seedier Side
Soho has a rich tradition of subversive nightlife, from legendary clubs and establishments to niche theatres devoted to drag artists.

Sip a Satisfying Pint in a Proper Pub
End the tour the British way, with a pint of something refreshing. Learn how the local pub became a home away from home, and how to spot a “proper” pub.
