Neighborhood Shopping
Home to a slew of independent, local boutiques, Carnaby Street has offered leisurely shopping on a pedestrian-only thoroughfare since the 1940s. In 1967, the location was satirized in the film "Smashing Time" where fashionistas promenaded up and down the street in high style. Brand-name retailers of fashion and lifestyle products, local boutiques, cafes, and restaurants line the street. Put Carnaby Street into our London family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in London.

  • I love carnaby street. Been here many times and is a Mecca for trendy shoppers. My favourite shoe shop in the world is here. Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • This is probably one of the most iconic downtown streets in London, where there is always a theme or something going on, it has its own charm and you must pass by it while in London!  more »
  • Got lost and accidentally found Carnaby street, in the end loved all the shops there and even had a dinner in the restaurant near! Nice find  more »

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
