Soho is one of the most fascinating areas of London with its wealth of landmarks and hedonistic history. It’s often a place overlooked for tourists however, which is something Soho Stories aims to stop.

Coming from Britain’s conservation organization, The National Trust, Soho Stories offers a fantastic audio tour of the area, narrated by veteran Soho entertainer Barry Cryer. Alongside that are stories from various ‘Sohoites’ such as Molly Parkin looking at artist Francis Bacon’s drinking ways and Janet Street Porter’s analysis of the Groucho club. A darker look at Soho comes from Frankie Fraser with the history of the rise of the gangster.

The app isn’t quite for the family to listen to with some references to sex and violence, as well as strong language, but it provides a great piece of social history of an iconic area of London.

GPS functionality means that Soho Stories tracks the user’s location and provides relevant stories, but it’s possible to listen away from Soho and choosing pieces of audio individually.

For social historians and tourists alike, Soho Stories should prove a fascinating source of information.
