  • Visitor Information

Walking from Gerrard Street to Shaftesbury Avenue in the Chinatown area of Soho you'll come across the pedestrianised Horse & Dolphin Yard which gets its name from the Horse & Dolphin coaching inn which was built in 1685. Though the 17th century inn is no longer there, a pub - the De Hems Dutch cafe bar - now stands where the Horse & Dolphin once did, just off Shaftesbury Avenue.
