Best Shopping Destinations in London

When you want to spend a day hitting the highstreet for some serious retail therapy, it’s no secret that London has some of the top shopping destinations to cater to every need. Whether you are looking for big name brands, small boutiques that partner with the latest names in fashion, or even quirky little vintage spots, you’ll find it all here – and more.

Westfield

If you want to get some worthwhile shopping hours in without traversing a wider locale, Westfield shopping centres in White City and Stratford are two of the largest shopping malls to be found in Europe. It has the top highstreet names like Marks & Spencer alongside luxury brands like Jimmy Choo and Ted Baker – but there are also more unique labels like Monki to be found without having to stray off the beaten track.

 

Oxford Street

As one of the most famous shopping streets in the whole of London, it would be a travesty not to stop by and experience all that Oxford Street has to offer. While it may seem like a small area to really get your teeth stuck into, you’ll find 300 stores comprising high-street stores, designer outlets and even landmark shops that won’t leave anything to the imagination.

 

Regent Street

In the very unlikely instance that Oxford Street doesn’t have exactly what you need, you can take a short trip across to Regent Street. Here you’ll find some more affordable chains right up against London’s most iconic historical names like Hamleys toy store, but there’s so much more to see and do if you want to rest your tired feet and take a break.

 

Knightsbridge and Belgravia

If you are a self-proclaimed fashionista, you may want to make Knightsbridge and Belgravia your next shopping destination. There are a host of prestigious brands to be found here, with a focus on providing the top trends synonymous with the fashion elite.

 

Bond Street and Mayfair

When you are looking to splash some cash, Mayfair shopping at Bond Street and Mayfair will make your day. This is where you’re most likely to brush shoulders with celebrities in London’s most exclusive spots; you’ll have access to Burberry, Louis Vuitton and even the flagship Tiffany & Co. store. If you’re hoping to find something a little different to designer clothing, you could get lost in Grays Antiques at Davies Street instead.

 

Camden

If you are a dark soul at heart, Camden is undoubtedly the number one iconic spot for all things alternative. Goth and punk fashion are the passion and you’ll find everything from top brands like Cyberdog to handcrafted jewellery, homewares and more at Camden Market. You can even get a tattoo, eat at a great restaurant, buy quirky personalised gifts, or indulge in one of the top sustainable retail spots in the whole of London right here.

As London is a melting pot of culture, you’ll find that it really does have its finger on the pulse to bring you the latest trends, high fashion, affordable highstreet brands and much, much more.
