To lose yourself in London's most artistic and creative district is a must. The Beatles did it in their day.

Soho

"We all live in a yellow submarine…"

Theatre, sex and tradition are how this popular central suburb is defined in London. And the thing is, since at least a century ago, the most important theatres in this area coexist with the most scandalous showcases - a curious mix that's going to make you hop from one place to the next while you visit these interesting streets. Since the middle of the 19th century, a multitude of artists and intellectuals found a suburb that was originally aristocratic and characterized more and more by a certain lack of morality; a place where you can establish yourself and let your creativity rein free. As you walk around this place, you feel that art emerging from its galleries, shops or late night bars in which Eric Clapton or the Beatles have been in a thousand times. Here is where the Sex Pistols used to live and record and where the Rolling Stones held their first concert. Although it has suffered a light renovation and several cultural places have been replaced by businesses at present, the artistic history it holds doesn't go unnoticed. To finish the walk, don't forget to go to the small and inviting Soho Square which is a park to the north near Oxford Street in which you can relax, look at the facades around you and if you're lucky, you might get to listen to the piano that they take out for public use, if the weather allows it.
