London Walking Tours    with Joanna Moncrieff

Soho – A Foodie History & Cocktail Bar Tour

Discover Soho’s food and drink heritage together with its hidden cocktail bar scene on this Saturday afternoon walk. Discover how Soho’s colourful history has made it what it is today – a place with a vibrant night life and myriad food and drink emporiums. Hear about the raucous parties that took place in the 18th Century and also the shenanigans in the private drinking clubs of more recent times.Soho is still a great place to visit and some of London’s best speakeasy type cocktail bars can be found in the area (that is if you know where to look). Many of these bars have no discernible entrance; a door that looks like it needs a coat of paint, an entrance to a block of flats – all is not what it seems.

You will have a halfway stop in a suitably hidden cocktail bar and finish in a gin bar with 180 to choose from some of which are served in what look like paint tins!

The walk starts close to Leicester Square tube and finishes near to Piccadilly Circus tube. It lasts approximately 2.5 hours which includes a halfway 45 minute stop.

Please note: due to the nature of this walk it is not suitable for under 18s
