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!

Soho Tour Review

5 out of 5

Glenn provided an excellent tour of the Soho area relaying his knowledge and enthusiasm for this area of London. Through Glenn's passion for the Soho area, the tour allowed myself to be embraced in its culture and community which was a different experience than the more tourist attraction free tours.

5 out of 5

Joel was an amazing tour guide! It was a very interesting funny tour and wouldn't want to miss out on this great experience. Going through Soho with a guide makes you realize how many stories the walls have to tell you and the feeling you get when you know these facts are overwhelming when you walk through the lanes. You'd like to turn back time! Joel did an amazing job. He was very funny and ambitious. You see that he is an artist and also wants to know all about the history. Thank you soooo much!!!

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 our guide carrying a Strawberry Umbrella.

Due to the high demand of our 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, and it helps us make sure that we have enough guides there to cover the demand. Help us make your Strawberry Tour experience unforgettable! Please note that we can't take groups of 8 people or more on our regular tours, instead, please get in touch with us here to enquire about a private tour.

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.
