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 have stayed 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. They’ve made Soho a destination for daily exercise limits for those outside the its perimeters.
We’ve updated our spring issue (yes – we finally went to print, look out for your copy!) to include some of the local businesses open in Soho. As lockdown restrictions ease and more businesses open, we’ll use this page to keep you updated.
