Old Compton Street
Old Compton Street is a road that runs east–west through Soho in the West End of London. Over the years, Old Compton Street has given refuge to many minorities and subcultures, from the Huguenots in the 1680s to the British rock ’n’ rollers in the ’50s. Today it’s one of London’s main LGBT+ hubs. It features several gay bars, gay-friendly restaurants, cafés and specialist gay shops. It is also where the Soho Pride festival one weekend each year. The street holds a dramatic history of having survived a terrorist attack on one of its pubs, but now its located some of the "quirkiest" places in London.
