Free Rock and Roll Soho Tour*
Free Rock & Roll Soho Tour*
Dickens described it as the place of “smoke and song”, little has changed. We call it London's home of Rock and Roll. Soho is where you go for a good night out. It's where you go to let your hair down and be a little bit naughty.
In its long and varied history, Soho has seen it all; secret meetings of the Communist Party (under Karl Marx himself), virtuoso performance by an 8 year old Mozart, the home of the world's most famous lover, Casanova, a cholera outbreak that threatened to end life in London, and of course, it's had more than its fair share of alcohol induced scandal.
See where the Beatles played their first and last gig in London, and where Beatlemania was born. Join us as we visit some of the top music venues from the 1960's that helped to launch the careers of The Who, The Rolling Stones and many more. We will saunter into what is left of the old red light district and take a stroll down the one and only Carnaby Street, the hub of swinging 60's fashion and the birthplace of the miniskirt.
This tiny district has left an indelible mark on pop culture and has risen from being a seedy dangerous realm thirty years ago to become one of the most famous and fashionable parts of the capital today.
But if you're looking for something more magical, why not try our Harry Potter Tour!

Meeting Point - Golden Square in Soho
We begin in Golden Square, just around the corner from Piccadilly Circus underground station. The station is on the Bakerloo and Piccadilly line, and around a 10 minute walk from Leicester Square and Oxford Street.
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the tour starts, it gives you plenty of time to meet the guide and grab a coffee or ice cream!
