The Wild and Wonderful Women of Soho

Join Michael as he looks at how women helped make Soho what it is today. 

We'll meet Casanova's lover, a bigamous duchess and controversial club owners.  We'll also discover the strange story of Britain's first famous transvestite.

There will be dark stories of exploitation, and this being Soho there will be sex, brothels, parties, nudity, drunkenness and foul language.

But there will also be inspiration, humour and hope. Three hundred years of Soho history and the women who helped shape London's most bohemian quarter.

Given the content of the walk it's unsuitable for younger children.

The walk starts at Piccadilly Circus Underground (meet outside the Criterion Brasserie - take the Shaftesbury Avenue/Eros exit, and ends in the heart of China Town.  Please check travel arrangements on the day at Transport for London's Journey Planner site.

5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterdayNEW

This walk lasts about one hour and forty minutes and celebrates the famous, infamous and sometimes little-known characters who make Soho's history so fascinating. 

From pioneers and entrepreneurs to prostitutes and night club owners, it takes in many seedy, glamorous and sometimes scandalous lives and stories as told by excellent guide Michael Duncan. The informality of a small group (we were seven) works well and our questions were answered with more anecdotes and a couple of unscheduled stops, too. 

Perfect for tourists but also for Londoners who want to rediscover their city. An inspiring way to spend a Sunday morning, and well worth £12.

Had a very enjoyable walk with a charming guide, Michael who has an easy manner and an obvious passion for his subject. He is very knowledgable about Savile Row, gentlemen's tailoring and the history of the area. I throughly recommend this leisurely walking tour with Michael and thank him for keeping pace with all my questions.
