Originally Soho was a hunting ground during mediaeval times, legend has it that Soho got its name from the hunters who cyring out "So Ho" as they rode through the fields. The area was built up as a destination for the rich, althought they cleared out when Soho was hit by a cholera outbreak in 1854. Cheap rents made it a haven for pubs, brothels and artists; and writers came soon after. I remember attending the world famous Ronnie Scott's jazz club here during the early 1960s. Soho made history during 1999 when a neo-Nazi party detonated a nail bomb in the Admiral Duncan pub on Old Compton Street, killing three people.

Can anyone tell me if there are basketball courts in Soho? Or near Soho? I'm at a loss to find anything.

hello,im francis,i looking for a room/flatshare in soho london or around tat area,i got 3 person 2gether looking for the room,we find the room already such a time...hope any1 can help me up n contact me...thanks so much...
I am an English artist living and working in a very nice
part of London(NW3).
I have a small split-level room that was my son's room.
It just needs a little decorating.
I am looking for a person to do some simple work,
helping me with cleaning, decorating and tidying in the
studio. Perhaps 2 or 3 days a week.
(Officially you can be a student for 15+ hours a week
and work for up to 20 hours)
I can offer the room, some food and spending money
to the right person.
If you are interested, tell me about yourself and your situation.
If you want to know more about me, or what I am offering please ask.
Who ever that bloke that said its South Holborn is either daft or american (its not south of houston or any of that rubbish). Holborn is a stretch from Soho and certainly not south of it. That bit between the City and Soho that you think of as Holborn today would have been fields , slums (people who could not live within the City walls) and marsh around the time Soho was a hunting ground.
im looking to buy a nightlcub in soho. i dont want to spend a fortune tho! any ideas???

I need to leave where I am asap.. if any guys out there has any ideas/contacts or vacancies please give me a buzz ********5 or email
There is a brand new laundrette in a side street just off Peter Street which runs past Somerfield supermarket. To find it-, come out of the supermarket, look to your right and you see a little passage way called Walkers court- to the right of this- parallel to it is another little side street ( It doesn't seem to have a name in my A to Z !!)- very easy to find.
No you are wrong, Marzio is partly right. Any history book of London will confirm it. Soho is a corruption of 'So-Hoe' dating from the 17th Century. The Earl of Monmouth, who lived there, used 'So-ho!' as a battle cry at the battle of Sedgmoor in 1685. Soho is a good mile WEST of Holborn anyway.
Marzio, Im affraid your wrong about Soho. The meaning of the name is not so creative!
Soho got its name from its location... its an abreviation of South Holborn.
Hope that helps.

I am looking for a reasonably priced dress maker in the local area to make a formal dress. They would need to be able to cut a pattern from a photograph and create. I will supply fabric.
Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?
Check out the Oasis - outdoor and indoor pools, plus gym, squash courts etc.
Just off soho sq, there is a doctors surgery, walk in centre, which also has a dentistry floor for residents.
Steer clear of all mini cabs round there - too dodgy. Instead book one with Addison Lee - ********8. there cheap and totally reliable - they even have satallite navigation systems.
If you cross over Oxford st into Newman st and walk up into cleveland st, there is a launderette on the right. Also there are a couple of taylors, plus a great little cobblers. It's about a brisk 10 min walk from where I live in dean st.
Would anyone know somewhere that does walk-in eybrow waxes so I can get my eyebrows done on my lunch break without an appointment?
The one on Frith street is always easy to get an appointment. You have to be able to prove you live here though!
I've lived here for well over a year now, seen the ads for the soho ball (the next one is fast approaching) and thought it was for old and stuffy peeps!. Anyone living here who attends?
guys, I have a spare room in Soho and I don't really want to flat mate. I want to use my spare room as a way to make friends internationally by renting it out like a B&B and charge a reasonable B&B rate. Firstly where can I advertise and secondly what is a fare rate to charge.
Does anyone know where the nearest coin-operated laundrette is in the Soho area?

Can anyone suggest a bar/club in Soho or surrounding areas which will hold approx 40 of my friends plus still be pumping atmosphere. For Next Sat night 6/12. Preferably not an entirely gay bar please....
Soho is great to live in. With all the bars and restaurants, theatres cinemas and markets there is a really nice atmosphere here. We have a room going in our flat! 550/month exclusive. Call fran ********9 or Peter ********2
There's a cafe called Essence on Dean street (I think) and it's entirely staffed by Polish people.
There is no way you pay 215 yearly in soho. The minimum amount for 2003/04 is 380 GBP for Band A and can go all the way up to 1000+GBP.
There are numerous bars in Soho. Most are small and very crowded though. There is the O'Bar and Bar Soho which are among the most popular. The famous Admiral Duncan and Comptons in Compton Street Soho's gay quarter. Most bars in Soho and the West End will refuse entry to single males and have strict door policies. Smart casual dress is the most common door policy. Wear a button up shirt with a collar, trousers and polished shoes for smarter bars and go in groups if you don't want to be refused entry by the doormen. Tiger Tiger just outside Soho on the Haymarket is the largest and busiest bar in the area, but the drinks are expensive. For the really scruffy though there is the Intrepid Fox on Wardour street whose clientel consists of bikers, punks and gothics.
Beware of hostess basement bars there though. Don't go in them at all you will get ripped off.
I think it's something relationated with the fox hunting.
Soho was a former hunting field. People cried "so-hooo"
when the fox appeared. Perhaps "so-hoo" meant "saw". The fox, of course.
Hi! I`m an Italian guy 20 yo working in London.. Lots of interest looking for more friends and maybe someone who`s having the same experience (doesn`t care if british or not)...

Do you really have to be minted to live in Soho/cov grdm/westend central london?? Are there any ways of getting somewhere central without paying a grand a month!! working in media and having a great 'scene' I think it would a superb place to live!
advice or ideas!!!
feel free to email ta. x
Of course hardly anyone lives in Soho. If like me you live there and work elsewhre then you will find that the trains are a joy. Empty stations - everyone heading the opposite way to you, fantastic.
There is a GP on Greek Street (or Frith Street?), can't remember, anyway ,it's at the southern end of Soho Square. Probably the best GP ever because they have walk-in appointments every day until lunch and so you will never have to wait fo a doctor again!
any work- soho, london
Yes, Sainsbury's, Tescos, Somerfield and Marks & Sparks is pretty close too.
Mines about 215 a year. Westminster has pretty much the lowest council tax.
You can save on tube fare, especially if you work nearby. Pretty much EVERYTHING is within walking distance. Being the film/media capitol of London, it's quite exciting living here.
The YMCA in Tottenham Court Road is probably the best gym in the area- fantastic facilities and really friendly. Costs about £35- 40 per month.
