What makes this tour special

Explore the quaint yet uniquely vibrant streets of Soho, Covent Garden, and Chinatown, in the heart of London's West End, on this private walking tour of central London’s arts, music, shopping, gourmet, and theatre scene. 

On your private tour you will:


Soho is bursting with fascinating history, architectural curiosities and one of England’s most vibrant entertainment scenes. This colourful neighbourhood continues to be at the epicentre of British counterculture, the arts, and the LGBTQ community. 

Home to the beautiful theatres of the West End, the area is full of actors, musicians and artists of all stripes, and consequentially is a hub of gourmet restaurants and fabulous bars too. 

Walk around the colourful Chinatown with its deliciously mouth-watering aromas, and learn all about its fascinating history; get lost down the cobbled alleys around the magnificent Seven Dials; move away from the tourist traps on Oxford Circus and wander down the glittering Carnaby Street, stop in at Liberty, a famous shopping emporium, with the famous black and white Tudor architecture. 

You’ll pass several historic places, including the Dog & Duck on Bateman Street, a pub from the mid-1700s, Royalty House - formerly Miss Kelly’s theatre, and where Charles Dickens worked as a stagehand, and Quo Vadis - the building where Karl Marx’s family lived in the mid 19th century, and where Engles and Marx worked together on the Communist Manifesto! 

Admire the seamless blend of traditional old pubs, with modern clothes and music shops. Learn all about the people that made the area so special from rock stars to actors, political figures to writers.
