If there’s a location in London that’s synonymous with fashion, lifestyle and entertainment we’d have to say it’s Soho. There’s a reason why it’s considered an entertainment district and that’s because it boasts one of the most active hubs of activity in the entirety of the UK. Now we’re sure that you know this already, but this region was also famed for its expansive sex industry. Although a lot has changed since the early 20th Century, there’s still plenty to see and do here.
