A guide to shopping in London

There is no two ways about it, London is one of the shopping capitals of the world. If you’re looking to indulge in a spot of retail therapy during your time in London, you’ll find it virtually impossible not to find an independent boutique, a luxury department store or a market stall to suit your taste.

Below is a list of some of the best locations for shopping in London:

Oxford Street
Arguably the first shopping district that most tourists think of when it comes to shopping in the capital, Oxford Street is a haven for affordable, high street chains. With a handful of bars, pubs and restaurants, it’s possible to spend a whole day here!

Harrods
Situated in the heart of plush Knightsbridge, Harrods is one of the world’s most luxurious department stores. It really has to be seen to be believed – don’t worry about what you can get, as there’s literally nothing you can’t get at Harrods!

Selfridges
A more contemporary alternative to Harrods, Selfridges stands proudly on Oxford Street, offering the complete shopping experience. From live music events and cooking demos to fashion launches, Selfridges is a luxury retail store with the wow factor.

Camden & Borough Markets
Situated either side of the Thames, Camden’s bustling street markets are in the heart of trendy north London and the cosmopolitan markets can be found to the south, just moments from London Bridge. If you like to experience the hustle and bustle and enjoy a grittier side to London, a day out to a market is a must. With a relaxed atmosphere seven days a week, you’re sure to bag a bargain!

Independents
Although it might appear that London’s streets are overflowing with high street brands, it’s actually quite the opposite. London is oozing with eccentric, independent boutiques that thrive alongside the mega brands simply because they offer something unique. Keep your eyes peeled on every street and you’re sure to find a friendly independent to duck into and explore!
