Carnaby StreetThe name Carnaby Street is synonymous with 1960s "Swinging London" - a phrase coined by Time magazine. Nowadays the area has gone through something of a revival and is once again boasting cutting-edge designer talents and trendy streetware.

With over 140 shops, bars and restaurants to choose from in the area, it's definitely worth a visit. Shoppers will find ad hoc collections like those at The Dispensary which stocks everything from John Smedley to Elspeth Gibson for the girls. There are also a couple of stores (notably Diesel and Animal) owned by multinational clothing corporations posing as urban clothing outlets.

Carnaby Street is a fantstic place to buy footwear, but there's also great vinyl to be had at Deal Real records or Phonica, a number of fine cosmetics shops and a few boutiques selling vintage mod clothing - The Face is probably the best.

There is a short-cut from Carnaby Street to Kingly Court, which hosts three floors of one-off 'concept' shops set around an open courtyard. This is the place to go if you want to find items not sold anywhere else in London.
