The Sondheim comedy musical by Marianne Elliot is an absolute must. Elliot's genius is stamped on this show. Sharp, witty, imaginatively staged. This will be this seasons show to see. Whilst Rosalie Craig & Patti Lupone are immense Jonathon Bailey steels the show. Sondheim at...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

It depends on which theatre you will be attending, we went to the Aldwich, which is near Convent Garden or Aldwich stops, but you would find that most of it is walkable even if you get a wrong stop. Hope this is helpful.

Whilst cabs are easily available London is a safe city and walking around even late at night is not a problem. I accept there are isolated incidents but these are very rare. Street crime generally in the UK is uncommon.
