The ultimate guide for a day out in Soho


Typically, Soho is an area in London that people like to visit in the evening as more bars, shops and restaurants are open and the area is vibrantly lit up.

While you may want to visit when the sun sets, that’s not to say that there isn’t plenty to do in Soho during the day.

If you’d prefer to explore the city in the lighter hours, read on for our recommendations of great places to visit in Soho while staying at the Montcalm Hotel Marble Arch.
