Soho is full of interesting streets and places. Although some of these look a tad drab by day, they really do change as the night draws in. Generally a friendly crowd (some drunkenness can cause problems, but not often)

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
