Latest reviews | Events in Soho | 10 Places to Stay

It's been described as "London's pounding heart". And while Soho may be bounded by the loud and crowded thoroughfares of Oxford Street, Shaftesbury Avenue, Regent Street and Charing Cross Road, this square mile of narrow streets and alleyways has an atmosphere all of its own, one which feels intimate and welcoming. Coffee shops, cosy restaurants and chic nightspots characterise the rebirth of an area which has cleaned up its act. The former red-light district has shaken off most of the sleazy trappings of yesteryear to present itself as a vibrant and contemporary enclave, with Old Compton Street's lively bars and cafés remaining central to London's gay culture. Music fans may regret the bulldozing of various legendary rock venues in and around Wardour Street, although the Ship pub, which could tell a tale or two, is still open for business, and the world-famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club continues in Frith Street. The old and the new co-exist comfortably around the streets and squares of the Soho community. The film industry maintains a traditional presence, the old Berwick Street market is as bustling and colourful as ever, and Chinatown keeps pulling in the crowds with its vivid street scenery and bargain prices.
