Discover bohemian Soho and posh Mayfair, in one tour. 

Hear stories about Paul McCartney, who has his offices on Soho Square, and the famous cockney jazz legend Ronnie Scott’s. See places where Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon spent their long boozy evenings mingling with the literary intellectual bums.

Our guide Patricia will entertain us with stories of BOHO SOHO and explain why Soho became the red light district of London and now the mecca for gay and queer London.

We will encounter a world of total contrast after eventually crossing  Regent Street with architect John Nash’s grand Regency houses and discover Mayfair, an area of the super-wealthy and well-heeled.

This tour is full of stories of scandals that took place in both worlds, the world of super-wealthy Londoners of the leased land of Mayfair and the Bohemian, arty crowds who frequented vibrant Soho during the post-war period.

We will start at Soho Square and finish at a nice pub in Mayfair.


When : Sunday 12 June 2022 - 2pm sharp
