The Noses of Soho


The soho noses are a bunch of noses poking out of walls dotted all over the west end in odd places. I’m not going to tell you where all of them are because you have to find them for yourself, and there’s even one ear.

Become rich

Legend has it that if you find all 7 of them you will become very rich indeed.

My favourite of the soho noses is the one on Admiralty arch because it was said that it was put there as a snub to Napoleon but the truth is that the soho noses are actually a work of art by Rick Buckley who wanted to make a statement about all the cctv cameras everywhere.

If you want to tweak the nose you have to be very careful because it’s high up and you can get hit by a car.
