Turn a corner and you might find yourself in Chinatown, where red lanterns flutter overhead and the sounds and smells of Asia waft from every doorway
From fashion to festivals, culture to culinary delights, Soho is London’s buzzing, vibrant heart.
Soho is all about seeing and being seen: socialising from dusk until dawn in the capital’s most fashionable streets.
Quirky, unique, and certainly never boring, Soho has bags of personality. Bring your bold fashion statements and be completely yourself.
The area is also home to some of London’s best shopping, with stores you wont find anywhere else.
Bustling restaurants with diners spilling out onto the pavements are packed cheek-by-jowl with some of the most desirable shopping brands in the world.
Once the sun goes down, Soho is full of possibilities. Eat, drink and be merry and see where the night takes you.
The Wingate was constructed in 1958 by renowned architects Sir John Burnet, Tait and Partners. It was an exemplar modernist office and leisure building then, and remains so today.

Nearly every narrow road in Soho is world famous. But arguably none more so than Carnaby Street, which, in the ‘60s, earned its reputation as a vibrant cultural centre for music, film and theatre’s biggest stars.
The rich, famous and exotic animals – owner and designer of Carnaby Street boutique Tom Cat, Irvine Sellar, drafted in Casino Royale actress Christine Spooner to promote its opening in 1966.
The hazy glow of neon lights from bars and theatres crowd both sides of Soho’s tight streets, making it a night-out like no other.
Though more popular today for dining and entertainment, Soho in the 19th century was the home of some famous faces. Including Karl Marx, who lived at 28 Dean Street.
Opened a year after The Wingate’s construction, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club has hosted some of the world’s most talented jazz musicians, including Stan Getz (pictured) and Jimi Hendrix’s last public performance.
Narrow alleyways, bustling pubs, characterful restaurants and word-class theatres – Soho is the vibrant home of London’s creative scene. One of the capital’s most iconic neighbourhoods, its messy grid of streets buzz with a constant flow of entertainment, making it a lively and exciting place to work.
