About The Event
Meet your guide outside Piccadilly Circus, by Boots the Chemist, underneath the famous neon lights. If you are coming by London Underground, take EXIT 1 from Piccadilly Circus Station.
Never quiet, always fun, and attracting a wide mix of people from all over the world, Soho’s atmosphere and history make it a must for any tourist (or locals!) visiting London. See the spot where the eradication of cholera began, where the Huguenots buried their dead, where Henry VIII built a royal park and be led along the avenues described in the 18th century as “a notorious place of ill-fame!” It's where Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin got their start. Combining the best nightlife in London, amazing food and a diverse array of live entertainment.
we take a minute to relax in Soho Square, browse the windows of countless off-beat shops, and tread in the footsteps of some of the biggest names to ever come through London. We will wander down alleyways and cobbled streets, passing by the old stomping grounds of people such as the dashingly amorous Cassanova, the brilliant and bizarre Amadeus Mozart, the revolutionary Karl Marx, and the record breaking Beatles.

- Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll
