    What to Expect
    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.
