Soho Area Guide
3 Reasons why Soho makes a Great Business Location
The vibrant streets of Soho, in the trendy West End, feature a unique mix of dining, independent shops, markets and entertainment. Soho has always been one of London’s most famous districts, especially known for its rich cultural history and entertainment, and is now the beating heart of Central London.
3 reasons why you should consider moving your office to Soho:
1. Endless food choice
Wherever you are in Soho you’re probably never more than 10 feet away from the next coffee shop, bar or restaurant. Whether you’re looking for an informal team lunch or an address to impress a client, you can find everything from Swiss fondue, to tasty Venetian tapas and hefty Turkish gözlem.
Soho’s also full of markets and independent shops, which give the area its unique and quirky touch.
One of our favourite places, Kingly Court, a three-tiered complex has a funky mix of established chains, independents, vintage and gift shops to offer.
You can also grab a bite to eat in your lunch break at Soho’s famous Berwick Street Market, situated on the stretch of Berwick Street between Walker’s Court and Yauatcha restaurant. It offers a mix of several fruit and vegetable stalls, Mexican-inspired burritos, salad bars and the oldest flower market stall in London.
2. Rich history
Once you got off the tube at Oxford Circus you’re already surrounded by iconic buildings full of history, which give the whole area its very distinctive character.
Straight down Argyll street, located on Great Marlborough Street, stands Liberty, one of the West End’s most eccentric buildings. Even though it is widely known as a department store for luxury goods, it is much more than that. During the times of development of various artistic styles, such as the arts and craft movement it played a critical role, contributing to its enduring connection with art and design.
On Argyll Street, you can also find the London Palladium, which is possibly one of the most famous theatres in London and the UK, especially known for the musical variety show.
Just behind Liberty, the Carnaby district spans over 14 unique and lively streets. Even though Carnaby is a quite famous area, few people know about its rich and fascinating music history – from 1930s jazz clubs such as the Nest and the Florence Hills Social Parlour to the introduction of Ska to the UK at the Roaring Twenties Club in the 1960s – the area was home to a wide range of nightclubs, record companies, magazines and music shops.
3. Transportation links
We believe location is everything. Not only does Soho have a very unique history but also the perfect transportation links, as Victoria, Charing Cross and Oxford Circus Station create a very accessible place. Moreover, you benefit from a direct connection to Heathrow airport, created by the Piccadilly line – offering a great deal of flexibility for client meetings and commuting.
Finally, Soho portrays freedom and presents the opportunity to take full advantage of the capital’s rich cultural and recreational offerings and its high quality of life.
