Carnaby Street

Established as a popular shopping street with mods and hippies in the 1960s, Carnaby street has been an iconic Mecca for both Londoners and tourists alike for decades. From Mary Quant and Kleptomania in the swinging sixties to Size? And Skinny Dip in the present day, the street has always been synonymous with high fashion and culture. A haunt for celebrities, artists and fashionistas alike, Carnaby Street is a London landmark not to be missed.

Since Carnaby Street first became popular the area has widened and now the surrounding 14 streets including Kingly Street, Ganton Street, Poland Street and Broadwick Street are known as the 'Carnaby' area. Situated a quick walk between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus, and easily accessible from Kings Cross and Liverpool Street a myriad of shops, bars and restaurants await you.

Some highlights of the area include; Too Faced, a make up lover’s dream selling deliciously smelling cosmetics; Irregular Choice, home to the most fabulous and original footwear; Scotch & Soda for the latest fashions from the Amsterdam based designer; Choccywoccydoodah for stunningly decorated cakes that you can’t eat enough of; Cinnamon Soho for a delectable fusion of British and Indian cuisine in a fun and friendly atmosphere and Rum Kitchen, a Caribbean soul food bar/restaurant where you can enjoy a meal, snacks or just sample the most delicious cocktails.
