‘Cholera and Casanova’, Tour of Soho in the footsteps of Dr John Snow

One of London’s most famous and infamous neighbourhoods. The unassuming Dr John Snow is famous for controlling the terrible outbreak of Cholera in Soho in 1854 by having the handle removed from the Broad Street pump. We will follow in his footsteps and explore the rich history of Soho and learn of its denizens in the charming Soho Square and neighbouring streets. The tour will explore in depth the work of John Snow and include the streets where the cholera outbreak occurred, ending up at the John Snow pub. We will come across Mozart and Casanova and many others and see the site of one of the world’s first nightclubs!
