    A few streets off Regent Street, this is a nice, quiet square to leave the hustle and bustle behind and stop for a few minutes or a snack. There are a couple of coffee shops and a giant metal shoe.

    They are currently restoring the statue of king George II in the center of the square. You can actually see mortar damage from the bombs in WW2

    Busy and bustling, lots of statues and ping pong tables! A variety of food and great coffee, and sometimes some freebies about!

    A nice place to sit on a bench and have lunch, and they have ping pong tables if you fancy playing a game. Nicely maintained area in the centre of London

    Coffee from Vida. Sandwiches from EAT. Drinks from Graphic. And if you don't want to sit in the sun - lunch at Bob Bob Ricard just on the corner. Fab.

    Virgin Radio used to be here in the days when Chris Evans ran the breakfast show. Soho on his doorstep, what a playground!

    It gets rammed in the summer at lunch time, get there early to find a spot in the sun.
