The center of the LGBTQ community in London, this road in Soho features many gay bars, restaurants, boutiques, sex shops (Clonezone, Soho Original Books and Janus), tea rooms, bakeries and cafés. In 1999, the Admiral Duncan pub had a neo-nazi bomb attack aimed at its gay customers, leaving three dead and many injured. The pub was reopened painted in pink and purple and flying a large rainbow flag. Down the road, the Prince Edward Theatre has attracted crowds for years with musicals like Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins and Miss Saigon.
