Carnaby Street is a famous shopping street located in London. It is found parallel to Regent Street, and you can easily walk from Piccadilly Circus to Carnaby. There are a lot of people, especially on Saturday and Sunday, so many that you might have trouble walking. In the Middle Ages, Carnaby was a merchant area, built with low wooden houses. In 1958, the first clothing store opened. It was a store of designer clothes, typically English, that its visitors loved. Many more stores followed, until now when there are three parallel and some perpendicular streets filled with little shops. It is a place that was very hippie in the 60s, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones walked around and worked there, and so for this the area became famous.
