    Just off the ultra busy/crowded Oxford street is a cute little street that offers unique boutiques, cool shops, and a more sane shopping environment that is Carnaby Street.

    Shopping for all. Coffees and Teas, cafes and restaurant. Just a short 15 minute walk from any of my apartments or a few minutes tube ride.

    Carnaby Street is the epitome of London cool. Check out big name brands along side quirky boutiques.

    There are plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants nearby as well - top pick is The Diner for American grub.

    Great for tourists, bit of a nightmare for long-serving Londoners! ~The streets are rammed with shops and boutiques, and places to eat. It's also very close to the theatre district so it's an excellent choice for any first time visitor!

    Carnaby Street is fantastic if you're looking to do some shopping and maybe pop into a pub. The best part is: no traffic. The street is pedestrians only and as a result is always quite lively.

    I just loved walking around saying to myself, "Hey, I'm on Carnaby Street!" It's such an iconic image from my past, Twiggy, the Beatles and the fashion world of the sixties. There are some neat little shops, and when I was there a unicycle riding juggler. You might like that, or perhaps not.

    What to say about Carnaby Street: a concentrate of strange shops and very original people. The first time I went I saw a boy with a rat, keeping it as a domestic animal. It is a must go in London.

    Carnaby Street is a great place to stroll and good for those looking for street style, retailers include Converse, G-Star and Levis to name a few, if you're looking for sneakers this is a good place to start. There's a great American Diner on this strip too, worth checking out for Americana style and great atmosphere.

    We strolled Carnaby Street while exploring London's primary shopping areas. It appears that Carnaby's heyday is long gone. However, it fun to imagine what it was like in the "old days". Are any you old enough to remember those comical Carnaby Street fashions? Along with the Beatles, I wore some of those suits!

    I LOVE THE STREET. There are many unique and cute stores, it's really fun to walk around, and of course to shop.

    I often forget about this area of london but there are lots of cool shops. Teenagers would enjoy shopping here. If you like groovy clothes and funky home goods. This is worth putting on your list.

    Once the epicenter of all things cool in the 1960's, Soho's Carnaby street now embodies a much more retail philosophy, lined with boutiques from some of the most iconic English and American Brands. Worth a stroll, and don't be afraid to venture through the side streets in the area, where the real gems are today.

    Very shabby looking street now which is rather trading on its past from the 1960's

Description

Swinging London, the term tied with the youth-led cultural movement of the 60s, was centered at fashionable areas like Carnaby Street where Mod and miniskirts were popularized. Today, some of the world’s largest clothing retailers feature shops along the pedestrian mall. Numerous cafes and restaurants serve the artistic and hip clientele that frequent the iconic neighborhood.
