Covering around a square mile between Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Tottenham Court Road, this neighbourhood crams a lot into its narrow, winding streets. Bacon butties are a cheap and delicious British way to start the day. But the people at Dishoom have gone one better, and come up with an Indian twist on this classic British staple. I give you: the bacon naan. The bacon is ethically sourced and dry-cured for five days with rock salt and Demerara sugar.
And just to prove it, the owner put a sign on the front door saying:. The sign was put up, as you might have guessed, to stop people confusing his house with a brothel, and still remains there today. A wonderfully quirky little attraction that is worth hunting down.
Never thought you could get excited about a water pump? Well, think again. The pump itself is nothing special — a pretty old Victorian pump — but in the middle of the 19 th century it became the scene of one of the biggest breakthroughs in modern medicine when the physician John Snow realised that an outbreak of cholera in Soho was geographically centred around the public water pump.
This led to the discovery that water could be a carrier of disease, and had a huge impact on public health and waste management. London geek fact: most of the neon sex signs around Soho were designed by artist Chris Bracey. Keep your eyes peeled when walking around Soho and you might just spot a life-sized nose poking out of one of the buildings.
The tiny sculptures appeared during the 90s, and since it took over a decade for artist Rick Buckley to come forward and claim responsibility they were apparently a protest at the growing amount of CCTV in London , a huge number of urban myths surround the noses to this day.
