Carnaby Street in Soho, London W1F 7DN

Soho is by far one of London’s most lively and vibrant areas, due in part to its variety of entertainment and eclectic mix of people, - media professionals, thesps, diners and theatre goers.

Featuring exciting nightspots, arts and cultural venues, as well as a number of popular attractions, the area is, not surprisingly, a tourist hotspot.  Soho is often the first port of call for fashionistas, eager to locate that unique find in one of the many quirky boutiques and vintage shops, or to pick up an item from a well known British brand. For this, they head straight to Carnaby Street.

This cool, laid-back pedestrianised area in north Soho, just behind Regent Street, is instantly identifiable by its iconic ‘Welcome to Carnaby Street’ arch, positioned across the main thoroughfare. Carnaby Street is located just a five-minute walk away from Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus Tube stations in the heart of London’s West End.

Popular all year round, but especially busy during the summer months, crowds descend on the area to enjoy great shopping and al fresco eating. 

With more than 50 independent bars, cafes and restaurants, theatres, pop-up shops, boutiques and brands, such as, Ben Sherman, Paul Smith and Barbour Heritage, to name a few, this famous street remains popular all year round, but especially during the summer months; crowds descend on the area to enjoy great shopping and al fresco eating.
