The Carnaby Street that we know today started life in 1957 when John Stephen opened up a men’s clothing boutique. It soon attracted like-minded businesses, and within a decade the street was full of fashionable shops selling outrageous outfits.

  • bobby – “I was very disappointed with carnaby street. Maybe it was good once, in the 1960s, but now it is just the same as any other street with the same kind of shops which you would never normally go in.

Craig’s review of Leicester Square Everybody looks wrecked in the morning but I'm the middle-aged kind of wrecked, where you roll out of bed feeling like you've only had five minutes kip. These sleeping kids in Leicester Square are the other type: they look like they're at the tail-end of a long night out that still hasn't ended yet. I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore -- I much prefer Leicester Square during th… continued
Craig’s review of London Buses I'm fifth in line behind three beer bottles and a half-eaten hamburger in a sauce-splattered carton. The other guy standing here is trying to peel the pages of his rain-sodden newspaper apart while we're waiting for the bus to loom out of the morning mist. There's a stream of headlights approaching down the road but by the time they arrive they have revealed themselves to be cars… continued
