Soho is a quirky and vibrant area of London’s West End, and it is known as one of London’s top entertainment districts. Over the last few decades, however, it has become an increasingly popular business district, especially with media, film and advertising agencies. The area is bound by Oxford Street to the north, Regent Street to the west, Leicester Square to the south and Charing Cross Road to the east – a truly central location with all amenities within the immediate vicinity. The area also comprises Chinatown, which is a major tourist hub with a buzzing atmosphere at night as well as during the day.

Soho is an ideal business setting, due to its central location and proximity to local transport links and amenities.

Some of the notable roads in the area include Dean Street, Wardour Street and Shaftesbury Avenue – which are home to many different types of business, as well as some well-known restaurants and bars.
