Carnaby Street. Joiner created by Mark Murfitt © 2014 . All rights reserved.

Carnaby Street, London

Carnaby street was the center of London fashion during the swinging sixties, and still retains a strong, independent fashion presence. However walking down the street you get the feeling it’s all a little ‘orchistrated’, with the big arch over the road at one end pronouncing to all and sundry where you are…as if you didn’t know. It feels like it’s been cleaned up for the tourists, where I’m sure the tourists would have better appreciated the street had it been left alone and allowed to ‘evolve’ like so many others in London.

However, it’s still an iconic area of London, and great to have a wander should you find yourself in the area with nothing to do..
