Best known for being the epicentre of “Swinging London” in the 1960s, Carnaby Street has long been a home for urban bohemians, from the Mods in the Sixties, to the punks of the Seventies and Eighties. Still a bustling centre of fashion and culture, Carnaby Street today plays host to some of the most stylish boutiques, cafés and bars in London.
See the home of the Knights Templar. Temple Church was constructed in the 12th century by the Knights Templar – a powerful order of crusading monks made famous by Dan Brown in The Da Vinci Code. The building was originally used for Templar initiation ceremonies, and today, visitors can see marble effigies of medieval knights buried on the grounds.
