iconic destinations Carnaby Street tonight the festive season is well under way the build
up to Christmas here in London and tonight Carnaby Street is switching on its festive
Christmas lights so I’am going to take a look at those and take you guys along with me this
years theme for their Christmas lights is it is inspired by a Victoria and Albert museum
installation called So you wan’t a revolution I had to think there SO you wan’t a revolution
records and rebels of the nineteen sixty’s and nineteen seventies which is kind of apt
for this year the street shot to fame initially in the nineteen sixty’s as the home of a place
to buy fashion and for the fashionable to be seen and come and enjoy themselves that
was the swinging sixty’s and ever since it has been evolving like fashion people say
it has changed but at the heart of it it still does exactly what it used to do and that is
sell fashion clothing beauty less music these days that has evolved too to the young and
fashionable so yeah we will come and check that out it is the home of global brands and
this years certainly here in Britain and more recently in the States has been well the public
have said they wan’t a revolution first of all the referendum on EU membership here and
then in the States voting for Donald J Trump here we go we are just at one end of Carnaby
Street it looks like the party has already started so the Christmas lights are on check

  1. Another great video of Christmas in Robert's London! I love that street as well and hope it never losses that charm. Like others mentioned for some reason the sound,speed and video was all out of sync! Cheers!

  2. Oh…we are very impressed by your "very English" look today πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–P.S. We are Russian Germans from Kazakhstan who live in UK 10 years now and the same look as yours today was shown to us on TV as "English" when we used to live there 😊😊😊

  3. An exciting little street, those lights aren't so much Xmassy in that it wouldn't be out of place to have them up all year round.

  5. Cool video! Didn't know about Kingley Court. Will definitely visit next time I'm on Carnaby Street. Thanks! Australia doesn't have ANYTHING like this.

  6. Great vid. I miss the London build up to Christmas. Never 'feels' like Christmas here in Brisbane with 35degree 14hrs of sunshine!!
