A great street to enjoy historic buildings with incredible stores and restaurants to ensure you don’t go hungry while buying cool stuff we don’t find at home.

I walked baker street and there are many shops that are interesting. There are 2nd hand ships on Baker too. There are also a lot of restaurants that offer quite a variety. The bakery offered gluten free, vegetarian, and regular food. It was very good.
