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.

Would this suit?

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.

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.

Fri Aug 19

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.

Sun Jul 17


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.

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 loads of bars in Soho

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.

Mon Oct 20

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.

Tue Oct 07

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.

Thu Apr 10

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!

Everything within walking distance

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.

Fri Feb 07

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.
