It was here in Soho that the Huguenots (French Protestants) settled to be near the Royal Court when they left France and sought sanctuary in England. They were skilled craftsmen and brought with them new techniques, materials and styles that made them the most sought after luxury goods that you could buy. Silversmiths, glass blowers, hatters, tailors, jewellers, peri-wig makers, gun makers as well as men of science, letters and medicine. On this walk you will hear about their skills, why they came to Soho, where they lived and where they worshipped as well as some of the other French that chose to settle in Soho.
