The area, which boasts both Brick Lane and Liverpool Street National Rail and underground station close by, has always been a melting pot for newcomers.
SOHO, London, probably got its name pre-1666, (the year of the Great Fire of London) when the area was mostly fields and used for hunting. SOHO was apparently the hunting cry.

Shoppers flock to Carnaby, Oxford and Regent Street and the iconic Liberty’s of London which first opened in the 1870’s is close by. The Dean, Frith, Beak and Old Compton streets of London SOHO have always been lively both day and night as they attract theatre and music fans to famous haunts such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.
