Soho is Open!

Lockdown Soho My Soho Times
Empty streets of Soho during lockdown | Old Compton Street

Soho is almost unrecognisable during the COVID-19 lockdown. A district which on any given day is heaving with people, suddenly resembles a ghost town… However if there’s any sense of normality, it’s due to the small independent businesses which continue to stay open to serve our community with essential items. They’ve given us a reason to step outside and stretch our legs for a short stroll to pick up groceries (and see a familiar friendly face!). They’ve made Soho a destination for daily exercise limits for those outside the its perimeters.
