Soho Square, London

3.6
#5 of 11 in Wildlife in London
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Relax and take in the quaint garden atmosphere of Soho Square, a tranquil spot in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood. The center of this small park dates back to 1681 and the times of Charles II, commemorated in the statue that overlooks the square. Do as the locals do and have a picnic, play table tennis, or listen to open-air free concerts in the summer. Deep under the square extend wide catacombs that belong to St. Patrick's Church, and historical buildings surround the park.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
