Best traditional pubs in Soho
Although Soho is in the centre of Central London it somehow has the atmosphere of a village. Bound by Oxford Street to the north, Charing Cross Road and Regent Street to the east and west and Shaftesbury Avenue to the south, Soho is famous for its sex shops and infamous for its gangland past, but it also contains some of the best pubs in the capital. As interesting as the pubs are the people who drink in them and Soho is full of characters and well-known personalities. Wardour and its adjacent streets continue to have a connection with the creative industries, film production and music studios, fashion and advertising agencies, still have a foothold in Soho.
