Soho, the neighborhood to enjoy London nights to the fullest

Soho is a famous London neighborhood that is part of the West End and known as one of the best areas in London to go out partying, thanks to its wide range of bars, clubs and pubs.

It spans one square mile and is bordered by Oxford Street to the north, Regent Street to the west, Leicester Square to the south and Charing Cross Road to the east. Indeed, very central.

It is a multicultural area and during the weekends it is so crowded that the streets are usually closed to traffic.

What to see in Soho?

Until recently, this area was famous for its sex shops, but a transformation took place in the 1980s and today it is characterized above all by its high-class restaurants and journalistic offices, although some still exist. 

In the center of Soho, it is worth highlighting a small square of the same name dating from 1681, which has a landscaped park area and where open-air concerts are offered during the summer.

Here in the area is also London’s Chinatown, a street flanked by two huge Chinese porticoes and with a wide variety of oriental restaurants and cafes, of various prices and different menus, as well as Asian shops, supermarkets and warehouses.

Right next to Soho is London’s famous Oxford Street. And to the east is Covent Garden.
