60 years of Bohemian Soho is brought vividly to life in this unique audio tour, narrated by veteran Soho entertainer Barry Cryer.

Soho Stories knows where you are, what street you’re on, and whispers its hedonistic history in your ear.

With stories from celebrity ‘Sohoites’ such as

- Molly Parkin on boozing with artist Francis Bacon
- Janet Street Porter on the Groucho club
- Frankie Fraser on the rise of the gangster
- Wee Willie Harris on the birth of rock n’ roll

With music to score your journey by Brian Eno and others, and readings by Felix Dennis and Maggie O’Farrell.

Stay tuned for an extended version coming in the next few months.

WARNING: some stories contain strong language and references to sex and violence.

    I tried this or on my last trip to London and really enjoyed it. The mix of music, background noises (I turned round a couple of times to see who was behind me only to realize it was the app!), and stories are wonderful. A great way to spend an hour or so

    This is a great App and I can't wait to use it on my next visit to Soho and London. Also, ignore what Joseph said as the guy who posted the three-star review has a valid point about how it should be able to be installed on external memory.

    Excellent app. Ignore the person who rated it low based on file size without using the app

    Yet to test this out but on first impressions, poor that it's been designed as a 50Mb app. Why not have it as, for instance, a 5Mb app that installs to the phone with 45Mb of content that's stored on external storage, like other apps do?
