Carnaby Street, Soho

One of the famous streets in London - Carnaby Street in Soho. You can find everything here from fashion and lifestyle retailers, including a large number of independent fashion boutiques, to pubs and restaurants and even our lovely Lomography Gallery Store Central London is very close.

This street got international awareness because it landed on the cover of an issue of Time Magazine in 1966. The included article extolled this street’s role:
“Perhaps nothing illustrates the new swinging London better than narrow, three-block-long Carnaby Street, which is crammed with a cluster of the ‘gear’ boutiques where the girls and boys buy each other clothing…” Wow!

It’s a beautiful, colorful place and even more beautiful when it’s dressed up for Christmas! Enjoy all these crazy decorations and lights!
