When it comes to the most famous and fashionable districts in London, nothing screams “sex, drugs and rock & roll” like the sparkling district of Soho, which has been a popular area for musicians, writers, and bohemians since the mid-19th century. Join us on our Soho Walking Tour to find out more about this fascinating neighbourhood!

No other place in the world has influenced Pop culture as much as this tiny, strange, busy hectic, mad area in Central London. Hear more about the likes of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, and their relevance to Soho, but also cover taboo topics like prostitution, and the history of the sex industry. 

So whether you’re interested in hearing more about musicians and celebrities in London, or if you’re a history of politics buff, come join us in our Free Soho Walking Tour to see for yourself why this is a neighbourhood where legacies are born.

Soho Walking Tour Highlights

  • Visit the Palladium, where the The Beatles had their first ever gig in London and the term “beatlemania” was coined.
  • Walk through Carnaby Street, the second most popular tourist attraction in London in the 1960’s, and the place where the first miniskirt was made.
  • See the house where Karl Marx and Friedich Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto, a piece of political writing so powerful that it split the world in two!

Well Done Strawberry Tours

5 out of 5

A huge Thank You to Carlton for his knowledgeable, and very interesting, tour of Soho. I was surprised as to the range of history and cultural relevance of the area and he delivered it with flare and enthusiasm. I would certainly recommend this tour and will definitely return to complete others. Well Done Strawberry Tours

Yes! As this is England, if we didn’t run the tour on rainy days it would hardly operate at all. Just make sure to have suitable clothing and consider bringing an umbrella if necessary.

Go to the meeting point and look for the tour guide carrying a red umbrella. If you have any problems finding the location please send us an email at: london@strawberrytours.com

Due to the high demand for tours you can only join the tour if you have made a reservation. So please make a reservation: it is absolutely free, it takes less than one minute. Please note that we can't take groups of 8 people or more on our regular tours, for larger groups, please contact us previously.

All our tours are free. That means that at the end of the tour, you can choose to reward the guide if you wish so, according to your enjoyment and your possibilities. A part of that goes towards covering our marketing and operational costs. This system ensures great quality in the tours, extremely high client satisfaction, and last but not least, that absolutely everyone can come on our tours, regardless of their budget.
