The local area
Shaftesbury Avenue is one of the major roads that runs through Soho and often marked as the hub of the West End thanks to its four prominent musical theatres. Named for the seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, the street is a hotspot for tourists and home to several well-known restaurant and bar brands. Take any of the side streets running off it, however, and you’ll find yourself in a much more urban, quieter side of Soho, where flagstone paths lead to independent cafes and alternative shops overlook high end restaurants.
Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Charing Cross stations are all less than a five minute walk away and the river embankment can be reached on foot. For more cultural pursuits, a visit to nearby Trafalgar Square wouldn’t go amiss – it’s bordered by the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, both of which house some of the most famous paintings in the world. With more restaurants, museums, theatres and bars than it’s possible to count, our long stay serviced apartments in Soho connect residents with one of the most exciting areas in London.
