Like Britain’s famous agent, James Bond, this neighbourhood leads a double life: Soho’s grungy streets are home to clean-cut record shops and fashionable galleries.

Soho’s red-light roots and beatnik bastions have steadily transformed into hip public houses, all-night coffee shops, and vintage boutiques that welcome the 24-hour clamour of this cobblestoned neighbourhood.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
