Page 185. " and Soho "

Soho is a vibrant area in the West End of London.

Traditionally, it has been associated with entertainment and film, and the sex industry (strip-clubs, brothels and sex shops). Today, the sex-related industries have declined somewhat, but it is still the location of many media-related businesses as well as a large number of up-market restaurants.

Since the 1970s, Gerrard Street in Soho has become the centre of London's Chinatown.
