What to Expect

Since the arrest of a "lewd woman" in Soho Fields for a "breach of the peace" in 1641, Soho has been synonymous with vice and its constant companion, crime.

Soho's gangland heydey was the 1920s to the 1970s and is explored in fascinating detail on this two-hour tour.

Do you think taking drugs in nightclubs is a recent phenomenon? Think again! It was all going on in the 1920s.

The people that made the real money were the pornographers and pimps, The Messinas, Bernie Silver, Jimmy Humphries and Paul Raymond were all helped along by corrupt Metropolitan Police officers and an eager paying public.

We'll discover what the "superstar" criminals were up to, including: The Krays, The Richardsons, "Mad" Frankie Fraser, and some you might not know: The Sabinis, The Whites, Jack "Spot" Comer, Billy Hill, Alfred "Italian Jock" Dimes and Ronnie Knight.

We start the tour at Goodge Street Station, our lovely tour goes ahead whatever the weather, so see you there!
