Carnaby Street: 1960 – 2010

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.


Still a byword for swinging London, Carnaby Street is celebrated at the Carnaby Street: 1960 – 2010 exhibition, which runs fromFriday February 26th 2010.

Taking place at the 38 Carnaby Street gallery, the exhibition will apparently put into context the history of Carnaby from its earliest origins in the 16th Century to the present day, but will of course have much of its emphasis on the 1960s. As well as the exhibition, there will also be a limited edition book of the same name, featuring images from photographer Philip Townsend (like the one above) and exclusive interviews with people who have lived and worked in Carnaby including The Who’s Pete Townsend.

The exhibition will be open 7 days a week at 38 Carnaby Street, London W1. That's also where you'll find the book.
