Free Soho Walking Tour*
Where: Leicester Square
Language: English & Spanish
Duration: 2 hours
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.
During the Christmas & NYE period our schedule might be slightly altered with some additional departures and other days where we are running fewer tours. Please check our live tour calendar here to double check when the tour is running.

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

Tour guide Alex was absolutely wonderful! So enthusiastic and had so much knowledge to share. I went on the Soho walking tour and it was a great way to explore the city. The pay what you like idea is great as I was a traveller on a tight budget.

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.
