5 Things To Do In Soho
Booking a bed and breakfast in Gower Street may be just the thing if you prefer peace and quiet. However, if you find yourself craving for some action, Soho is just some nine minutes travel away from your quiet little corner.
In Soho, you can do anything. During the day, it is a shopping paradise for fashionistas. At night, it’s a party jungle for party animals. However, other than shopping and partying, there are several things you can also do in this famous fashion and entertainment district. If you are wondering what you can do in a place like Soho, here are some activities that are worth giving a try.
Experience the Soho Party Scene
A Soho vacation is never complete without a taste of its exciting nightlife scene. If you want to dance the night away to live music, head over to Club 49 and sweat it out on it’s tightly packed dance floor. If you want to take it slow first with a few rounds of delicious cocktails, head upstairs to the club’s bar and VIP room. If you really love basement parties, Bar Rumba is just the place to be trendy and cool. For lesbians on a night out, C U Next Tuesday is an excellent place to grind to hiphop and r&b.
Take Instagram Photos of Piccadilly Circus
Despite its name, Piccadilly Circus is not actually a giant tent where you can watch all sorts of death-defying acts and awe-inspiring acrobatics. It is, in fact, one of the busiest squares in London and one of the most popular tourist destinations. Piccadilly Circus can easily visited while residing at hotels in Covent Garden London.
With its many iconic landmarks, Piccadilly Circus is indeed a sight to behold. For Instagram-crazy travelers, Piccadilly Circus makes a lovely photography subject. Take a selfie under the statue of Eros or a snapshot of Piccadilly Circus at night
