From the early 19th Century the Carnaby area was known as the place where hip, theatre lovers hung out. Its proximity to London’s West End, theatres, galleries and Savile Row theatres is largely responsible for turning Carnaby street into the place for creative bohemians.
Carnaby Street is located in Westminster in the Soho district near Oxford Street and Regent Street. Today it is home to numerous fashion and lifestyle retailers as well as several independent fashion boutiques. You’ll also find health and beauty stores like M.A.C and Boots here, besides several spas and beauty salons too.
You’ll also find several food and drink outlets on the street including Carnaby Burger Co, Masala Zone, Polpo, Wright Brothers Soho and more.
