Neighbourhoods don’t come more central than this. Perfectly positioned between Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Soho, Chinatown is literally at the centre of it all, a 24/7 melting pot of culture and diversity. With so many sounds, sights and scents, Chinatown is a treat for the senses, but also one of the West End’s most well connected enclaves.
From Original, to Oriental
Soho came into being after the Great Fire of London, the first houses of the post-fire regeneration being built along the newly created Gerrard Street around 1685, so the street really was the birth of Soho. However it wasn’t until the 1950’s that the Chinese community started to populate the area, relocating after the war from London’s original Chinatown in the East End.
