The streets that make up the Carnaby Street area are known for unique boutiques and international flagship brands making it one of London’s most popular and distinctive shopping destinations.
You will find great shopping here alongside a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and bars offering cuisines from around the world. Kingly Court is a three storey shopping, food and dining destination located around a central courtyard which is open during the warmer weather and covered in winter. The area often hosts shopping events, live music gigs and one-off pop up shops.
During the 1960s, Carnaby Street was popular with followers of both the Mod and hippie styles. Bands such as The Who and the Rolling Stones frequented the area making it one of the coolest spots of the time.
Located just a five minute walk from Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus tube stations, Carnaby Street can be easily reached from any of our London vacation rentals.
