The area
Neighbourhood: Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

I really liked exploring here. So many independent shops and boutiques to come and explore. Kingly Court has many independent restaurants. Please come and visit when in London.

Loved the buzz and busy atmosphere. Visited in the evening so the place was well lit up. A British institution.

Went in December & the decorations are brilliant. The shops were not as I expected, but then again we are not in the sixties anymore, so I don't know what I was expecting. Nice place to have a look around though

Whist Carnaby Street is full of over-priced, hipster shops, it has the best outdoor Christmas light display in London. For that alone, Carnaby Street is worth a vist.

When I last went here it was full of small independent retailers selling quirky stuff........now just another shopping street with the usual retailers. Not an attraction any more.
