Did you know that Soho was once called the French Colony? That is what we'll find out along the walk.
London’s Soho area is now famous for its nightlife, but in the 19th century was known as the “French Quarter”, since large numbers of Huguenots settled there to escape persecution in France.
We will meet on Soho Square in front of the French Protestant Church. Then we will walk and allude to certain French places as French House, a Huguenot Chapel, various historical shops and we'll be ending in the West End with Covent Garden and Notre Dame de France. Be aware that we won't go inside the buildings.
This stroll is a refreshing opportunity to find out more about the French presence in London through centuries.
