Discover Soho, London's premier neighbourhood for entertainment, its charming historical streets and a wide variety of international foods with this half-day food and cultural walking tour.
Soho is considered one of London’s oldest multicultural areas. From the time of its development in the late 1600s, the rich never looked upon Soho as favorably as the other luxury boroughs. Immigrants moved in, and Soho initially became known as London’s “French Quarter”. Most foreigners that came to London, found cheap housing in Soho, and brought with them their incredible cuisines. Amidst the music halls, small theatres and brothels, these immigrants opened up cheap “eating-houses” all over the neighborhood, making it the “in” place to eat for intellectuals, writers and artists, looking for delicious international cuisine.
Today Soho is London’s premier neighborhood for entertainment, filled with pubs, bakeries, bars, restaurants and coffee shops. This small borough bordering with some of London’s most famous shopping streets like Oxford and Regent Street is always at the forefront in trends, and one thing never lacking, is food.
From the traditional to some of the newest fusions in the city, Soho is the place to learn about London’s incredible international food scene. This food tour of Soho’s International cuisine is an exploration of this neighbourhood’s diverse and historical richness.
