An enclave of only 14 streets in the north west corner of Soho, yet Carnaby is very much a neighbourhood in its own right. Carnaby Street is world renowned as the epicentre of Swinging London in the 1960’s, and has continued its association with fashion and youth culture to this day.

Peerless Heritage, Modern Charm

Carnaby’s history is key to its charm, playing a significant role in London’s music and fashion scenes since Vince, London’s first menswear boutique, kick-started everything in the 1950’s. Music followed fashion in the 60’s with everyone from Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles to icons Brigitte Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor all being Carnaby regulars.

Nowadays, an array of boutiques showcase both established brands and emerging independents, with everything from classic Mod fashion to cutting-edge streetwear, with the iconic Carnaby Street sign a perfect backdrop for Insta-worthy moments.

Why Carnaby?

From the punks of the 70’s to the 80’s New Romantics, Carnaby is synonymous with youth counter culture, but a modern focus on sustainability and inclusivity has created a real sense of community, with the neighbourhood’s stakeholders, commercial operators and residents spearheading several West End initiatives around environmental and humanitarian issues.

Cobbled Streets & Vivid Colours

The area has benefitted from huge investment in recent years, yet remained faithful to its heritage as a creative destination for lovers of music, fashion & culture. Quaint cobbled streets such as Newburgh Street and Marlborough Court showcase attractive period architecture, with vivid colours the backdrop to an endless flow of visitors giving the whole neighbourhood a constant buzz and sense of fun.

Covent Garden

One of London’s most iconic and recognisable destinations, perhaps from the outsider’s perspective nothing more than a hub for tourists, shoppers, theatre goers or opera aficionados, but scratch the surface and there is so much more to discover about this thriving community…

Seven Dials

Seven Dials is a charm-packed lifestyle & gastronomy hub connecting Covent Garden with Soho, defined by seven characterful cobbled streets radiating from the unmistakable sundial dating from the 1690’s.


Soho is surely the epitome of London life, the beating heart of the West End, a vibrant enclave where history, creativity and a sense of rebellion collide to create a truly original and unrivalled neighbourhood. Globally recognised for its bohemian spirit, Soho has been a haunt for artists, writers, poets and musicians for centuries. Modern Soho is a paradise for creatives, culture vultures, foodies and night owls.


Chinatown is a vibrant enclave where East meets West, nestled between Soho, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden. A captivating oasis of Asian cuisine and culture, adorned with ornate Chinese gates and colorful lanterns.

St. Martin’s & Strand

St. Martin’s Lane is Covent Garden’s western border, a bustling thoroughfare linking Seven Dials with Trafalgar Square and a gateway to the wider West End. Strand is the southern boundary of Covent Garden running parallel to the River Thames and linking the cities of London & Westminster. A neighbourhood that offers everything from river views and world class theatres, to green open space and village vibes.


Bloomsbury is a little slice of bohemian paradise in the heart of London, historic streets lined with handsome Georgian townhouses, leafy garden squares and a vibe that oozes culture & creativity.

Holborn & St. Giles

Holborn is the gateway from the City of London to the West End and home to the UK’s legal profession. Situated around the grand garden square of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, it’s home to many top law firms, barrister’s chambers and the London School of Economics & Political Science.
