Soho is one of the hubs of London in my opinion, with so many shops, restaurants, bars and hidden gems to explore, I always seem to find myself in Soho when I travel up. If you live further away, there are countless hotels in Soho to choose from to make your stay extra special.
WHERE TO EAT
Choosing somewhere to eat in Soho is challenging as there are so many well-loved and unique cuisines to choose from. I wanted to choose something I had never tried before, and Casita Andina was perfect for that. Peruvian food is something I had never tried before, and the photos on their website sold the food to me. I wasn’t disappointed! There is a great selection of meat and meat-free dishes to choose from making it hard to choose what to have. I would 100% recommend the Corn Fritters and Chicharrón pork bites from the selection of dishes I chose. Eating healthily doesn’t have to be boring, and I feel Casita Andina achieve this extremely well.
WHERE TO BREAK A SWEAT
There are many different kinds of fitness studios in Soho so you won’t be spoilt for choice. Head to Third Space to use their boxing ring, climbing wall or 130 classes every week. Another_Space offers various classes including HIIT, yoga and spinning. If you a lover of spin classes, you won’t want to miss out on visiting Psycle. Sweaty Betty at Carnaby Street offer fitness classes, activewear and a healthy cafe all under one roof. If you fancy something a little less intense, Triyoga offers yoga and pilates alongside various workshops. As you can see, you are guaranteed to find something that suits your preferred style of workout in Soho.
WHERE TO SHOP
Are you a lover of activewear? I already have a pretty extensive gym wear collection but can’t resist adding to it. If you are like me, you will love the variety of different shops to add to your gym wardrobe including Sweaty Betty, Lulu Lemon, Adidas, Puma and Nike.
WHERE TO TAKE A COFFEE BREAK
Being half-Swedish, when I saw the Nordic Baker I had to go in there for a coffee and sweet treat. If there is one thing that reminds me of Sweden, it is Cinnamon Buns. If you are a fan of home-made style baked goods, you have to visit Nordic Baker. I visited here after my lunch at Casita Andina and it was the perfect sweet treat before catching my train home.
