Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Piccadilly Circus to meet your guide for your 2.5-hour walking tour. Your guide shares entertaining and informative commentary about the people and places of Soho, one of London's most famous entertainment districts.

During your walking tour, you'll explore parts of Soho where music legends such as Jimi Hendrix played legendary gigs, and where classical music genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his first symphony. Follow your guide around London’s former red light district and hear about the 'English Hugh Hefner.' Continue by strolling through Chinatown, St Anne’s Church and the French House, a pub where writers, painters and world leaders have gathered for decades. Find out where Karl Marx lived when writing Das Capital, at a spot just steps away from the pub where George Orwell wrote 1984.

Take in colorful and quirky street art, then stop for a look around Soho Square — considered the United Kingdom’s most cosmopolitan location and home to large media businesses including Paul McCartney's holding company.

Your Soho walking tour wraps up at a bar made famous by John Lennon and Eric Clapton. Get the inside scoop on why the bar banned Keith Moon (the drummer for The Who) and hear other fascinating stories before making your own way to your next destination.

My husband and I had a great time on this pub tour. Jack, our guide, was quite a character and was so knowledgeable. We even revisited a couple of the pubs later on our own.

Really enjoyed the pub tour - Harley was a great guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had lovely people in our group - it was a joy chatting to them. The pubs were fascinating - tried some 'different' lagers. Had a fab time - thoroughly recommend it.

This tour was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.It was the day after the Pride parade so all of Soho was looking a bit hungover!! We saw some great old pubs (had a drink in each of them) and learnt a lot about the history of Soho. Our guide Theo was friendly and informative and we had a great time.

Great introduction to Soho

Linton really gave us a well-rounded view of Soho. Complete historical survey from the industrial revolution to the rockin 60s and 70s. Good recommendations on pubs/beers/things to do in the area and other activities around London. Followed his advice for the rest of my trip and it didn't lead me astray. Bonus: made it quite easy to find the tour group in busy Piccadilly Circus and clever with the jokes.
