WALKING TOURS

Sordid Soho and Covent Garden

 

Built after the Great Fire of 1666, Soho has always been the home of the homeless, a place where immigrants have flocked into the warren of alleyways from all over the world. Today it is a buzzing and hyper-active zone of fun where it is hard to resist eating, drinking, flirting and flaunting as you get sucked into the maze that is Soho. Nearby is Covent Garden, home to Eliza Doolittle and the Old Flower Market. This is one of the most charming of central London’s shopping areas rich in history dating back to Anglo Saxon period.

“I came to London. It has become the centre of my world and I had worked hard to come to it. And I was lost.”
