Finding out information on Neal Street is like looking up earth in the Hitchhikers Guide. Not quite ‘Mostly Harmless’, but almost as brief. Neal Street is a bustling shopping road, mostly pedestrianised, linking Shaftesbury Avenue to Covent Garden in the London Borough of Camden. Many of the shops along it sell modern fashion items mostly aimed at the modern, young and fashion conscious.

However, there are a number of other shops on Neal Street that, unlike a number of the clothing shops that come and go with the seasons, have remained in place for quite some time. These include the Kite Store at 48 Neal Street, and Neals Yard which sells a vast range of health food products. At the top of Neal Street (actually in Monmoth Street) is a good second hand jazz record shop.

Naturally it is risky listing the shops, pubs and restaurants in any London street, and Neal Street is no different. They tend to move on and change, making any effort to tell you what is there now hopelessly difficult. Neal Street is worth a stroll down, a browse along, as at least this is still one place in London which has yet to be dominated by the monotony of urban chain stores.

In the holiday season Neal Street can become very crowded, and even more so during the sales season.
