Shopping in London – High streets and markets in London

What to buy in London?

Some of the most cherished objects from London are the typical souvenirs, such as bags, t-shirts, miniature versions of red telephone booths, double-decker buses or black cabs.

But for those who are planning to renew their wardrobe, you have a wide range of options for all different types of tastes in clothes and accessories, from more classic cuts, to authentic vintage outfits.

English tea is a highly sought-after product when visiting London. The most popular types of tea include Earl Grey, with a slight citric taste, Darjeeling tea, Black tea with a floral aroma, Assam tea, strong black tea, and the famous English Breakfast tea (combination of Assam and Ceylon tea).

Although there are an infinite number of shops in London that sell tea, we recommend the same shop where Queen Elizabeth buys her tea; Fortnum & Mason. This is the largest tea shop in the city. It opened in 1707 and it offers over 60 kinds of tea. You will find it on Piccadilly circus.   

Where to go shopping in London?

We recommend six alternative shopping destinations in London for different types of public:

  • Oxford Street: Probably the most famous shopping street in London. Here, you’ll be able to find the most popular shops and department stores.
  • Covent Garden: One of the liveliest areas of London. Inside the market and in its adjacent streets you’ll find clothes, accessories and souvenir shops.
  • Knightsbridge: A retail district in central London, with famous department stores like Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
  • Brick Lane: With a famous vintage market open at the weekend, and great vintage stores all week round, on Brick Lane you’re sure to find something different.
  • Bond Street: The ideal place for those looking for high-end boutiques. Channel, Armani or Versace are some of the designer stores found on this street.
  • Regent Street: Full of fashionable clothes shops, Regent Street is one of the most popular retail streets in London. It is also worth mentioning the oldest toy shop in the world, Hamleys, a wonderland for both children and adults and comparable to the recently closed FAO Schwarz toy store in New York.

In this guide, I will help you to navigate the most famous shopping streets in London and tell you why they have become so remarkable from a recovering shopaholic.

If this is your first time in London, you might want to check out my London Travel Guide. This city can be tricky to navigate at first, but it’s worth the effort.

Besides the wonderful shops lining the pavements, why are these streets so famous? Let’s dive into this jammed packed list of must-see stops and uncover why they’re on the map.

Shopping Streets London, High Street Shops & More

Okay, so the entire world knows that London has some of the best shopping districts in the country.

From Oxford Street with its bougie fashion designers to Old Compton Street with its incredible Pride Parades, London certainly has something for everyone.

Oxford Street

Let’s kick off with the most obvious street on the list of must-see shopping spots. This street is mostly known for its famed 300 designer boutiques and fansē shops, welcoming up to half a million visitors daily.

However, fascinating that may be, Oxford Street is also known for its mentions in the novels of Charles Dickens.

Fans of Dickens flock to this road in drones with little to no interest in designer scarves and barrettes.

This street has made a name for itself among the classic literature niche areas, unlike any other street in history. This excludes the fictional Baker Street featured in Sherlock Holmes, of course.

Covent Garden

This famous shopping area in London is a hub for entertainment and bargain hunting for locals and tourists alike.

Located in London’s West End, this area is a vehicle-free piazza of the senses for foodies and artists.

This spot is famous for its upscale performing arts venue, The Royal Opera House, and the occasional art exhibition by internationally renowned artists like Banksy.

An exhibition by this anonymous artist is due to open its doors to the public in May 2021.

Knightsbridge

A top Google search query for the term Knightsbridge is “Is Knightsbridge posh?” It is safe to say the answer is yes – very much so.

I worked in the famous Harrods in Knightsbridge, during university and yes, it is as posh or even posher than you could ever dream. I have served royals and Mr 007 himself Pierce Brosnan.

He is even more handsome in person, plus he worked in Harrods when he was younger. 

This part of London has Belgravia, Kensington and Hyde Park as its neighbours, which attract a popular and fashionable crowd.

The residents of Knightsbridge include pop stars, barons and media moguls. 

However, savvy shoppers know that there is more to Knightsbridge than meets the eye. From high-end boutiques to bespoke tailors, this area of London cannot be missed.

Just be on the lookout for your favourite member of the royal family while you’re out and about and pack a travel camera.

Brick Lane

This funky area in East London is an incredible mixture of old-world England and new generation London.

Whether you’re looking for colourful street art, one-of-a-kind fashion items or some of the best curry in the city, Brick Lane is the place for you. 

This area is known in modern-day London as an art gallery for the everyday person or a quirky shopping spot for the adventurous, but there’s more to the story. 

Brick Lane was also the hunting ground for Jack the Ripper from 1888. Tourists flock the streets annually just to take a Ripper tour and experience Brick Lane like it was in the 1800s.

Bond Street

Bond Street is synonymous with brands like Cartier, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and many more.

Designer goods and fine jewellery can be found on every street corner. This central London shopping district is the stomping ground for the rich and famous.  

The most notable sites in Bond Street are The Academy of Art and Sotheby’s Auction House, who holds multiple world records in the multi-million-dollar art trade.

Regent Street

This famous shopping street in London is located in the heart of the West End and is known for its host of flagship stores. Brands like Burberry and Coach found their feet in this area of the city which has become a world-renowned shopping destination.

Regent Street vendors host yearly events like the Summer Streets and the annual iconic lighting of the Christmas lights in November.

Portobello Road Market

This lively market in London consists of multiple vendors, all selling their wares in one location.

The main day for this market is a Saturday when locals and tourists haggle and dig among the carefully curated selection of antiques, jewellery and cuisine.

Photo author, Getty Images

A new variant of the virus has been found in Britain, strict restrictions are being imposed in London from Wednesday in Germany are preparing to go to extreme measures, and the first stage of vaccination has begun in the United States. This and other news about the development of the situation with Covid-19 in the world – in our daily review.

According to Johns Hopkins University, at the moment the number of people infected with coronavirus in the world is 72.3 million people, 1.6 million have died.

New strain in Britain – it may be more contagious

British doctors have identified a new variant of the coronavirus, which may be transmitted faster from person to person, Health Minister Matt Hancock said in a speech in parliament.

According to him, infections with this new strain of coronavirus are noted in hospitals in 60 districts of Britain. Now, according to him, the strain is being studied in the military laboratory of Porton Down, near Salisbury. The World Health Organization has already been warned about the new strain, the minister added.

At the same time, as Hancock said, experts believe that promising vaccines against coronavirus will also work successfully on the new strain.

“We have identified about a thousand cases of this variant, mainly in the south of England,” he said.

The prevalence of the new virus strain may be due to the fact that it spreads faster between people, Hancock added. However, for now, experts cannot say for sure. Also, according to him, there is no indication yet that those infected with the new strain will have a more severe disease.

“Regardless of the reasons, we must quickly take decisive action. Unfortunately, this is absolutely necessary in order to keep this deadly disease under control,” the minister said.

This is how the center of London looks like in recent days

London was assigned the third (highest) category of epidemiological threat due to a sharp jump in the incidence in the British capital. The decision was made after a briefing by the country’s health minister, Matt Hancock.

He warned that the situation in the city was rapidly deteriorating, and urged the government not to wait for Wednesday, which was scheduled to regularly review the classification of the country’s districts. Together with London, some areas of Essex and Hertfordshire also fell into the third category.

Since the end of the recent lockdown on December 2, Britain has been divided into three categories: Medium Threat, High Threat and Highest Threat. Based on this, restrictive measures of varying severity were retained in different regions.

Then London was in the second category: people could meet in pubs and restaurants, a significant part of shops and establishments were open. An increase in the level of threat means the closure of catering establishments, they will continue to work only for take-out or through delivery services.

It will be possible to meet in open spaces with companies not exceeding six people. You cannot host guests. Previously, the authorities wanted to leave the so-called “Christmas window” between December 23-27, so that the British could celebrate the holidays with family and friends.Now these plans will have to be abandoned.

Mass vaccination has begun in several countries around the world. The government of France invited other EU countries to jointly donate 5% of the purchased vaccine doses to countries that do not have the financial ability to purchase it.

According to a project called COVAX, supervised by WHO, by the end of 2021, it is planned to allocate 2 billion doses to vaccinate 20% of the poorest segments of the population in developing countries. If the EU supports the French proposal, the donation will amount to 65 million doses.

Lockdown will last until January 10, but this deadline may be extended.

Severe shortage of beds and medical staff in Sweden

For the first time since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, schools in Sweden’s capital Stockholm are switching to online education, the measure will affect children older 13 years.Students over the age of 16 switched to distance learning throughout the country a week ago. More measures are needed to contain the virus on Christmas Eve, authorities said.

Bloomberg recently reported that Sweden also faced massive voluntary layoffs of medical staff.Sineva Ribeiro, chairman of the Swedish Association of Medical Professionals, believes this is due to extremely congested hospital schedules.

A shortage of medical personnel, especially nurses and nurses, was felt in the country even before the pandemic. With the influx of covid patients, people almost stopped taking vacations and weekends, and the only opportunity for them to rest is to simply quit, the newspaper writes.

Scandinavian neighbors – Finland and Norway – offered Stockholm any assistance they could, including medical staff, equipment and, in some cases, transportation of patients.But the Swedish authorities say that so far they are coping on their own.

Worldwide: new anti-records and vaccinations

In US begins the first phase of the largest vaccination campaign in the history of the country. The first three million doses of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine have been sent nationwide from a warehouse in Michigan. Last week, a special US regulator approved the vaccine for mass use.

The first doses of the vaccine are distributed evenly among all 50 American states.

The first vaccines will be given to healthcare workers and the elderly over a certain age. Earlier it was reported that members of the Donald Trump administration would also be among the first, but later the president said that this decision had been revised.

Singapore has also been approved by Pfizer-BioNTech. The authorities expect that the first batch of vaccine will reach the country by the end of December.

In UAE also began to vaccinate the population, but in this country they decided to use a Chinese-made vaccine created by the pharmaceutical giant Sinopharm. In the first phase, vaccinations will be offered at 45 clinics and hospitals in the capital, Abu Dhabi.

Residents of the city can order vaccinations free of charge through district polyclinics. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 186 thousand people have been infected with the coronavirus in the UAE during the entire epidemic, 618 died.

The authorities of South Korea tighten restrictive measures in Seoul and the surrounding area, after the daily rate of new cases exceeded a thousand.Schools in the region are switching back to online learning at least until the end of December.

A number of enterprises will be closed. South Korea is going through the most difficult stage in the development of the epidemic. Morbidity and mortality rates have exceeded the previous maximum observed in February this year.

In Japan for the first time since the beginning of the epidemic, more than three thousand cases were registered in one day. In total, according to Johns Hopkins University, 181.6 thousand people fell ill in the country, 2.5 thousand died.Compared to many countries in the world, these indicators are considered favorable, but the Japanese economy has been hit hard.

New rules for passengers

In the coming weeks, a number of major airlines, including United, JetBlue and Lufthansa, are planning to introduce a new CommonPass smartphone app. With its help, it will be possible to track the history of passing tests for Covid-19 of each passenger on an international flight, their results, as well as in the future, possibly, the history of vaccinations.

CommonPass will notify users of the flight rules of a particular airline, for example, to show negative test results.

Construction of the Pimlico district began in 1835, its main task was to provide the wealthy population with neoclassical houses, with gorgeous views of the squares and gardens. Green areas are pleasing to the eyes of residents to this day.

The Pimlico area attracts people who often have to fly abroad – there is a high-speed train from Victoria Station to Gatwick Airport, and it is also not far from Heathrow Airport. Real estate prices in Pimliko are growing rapidly due to significant positive changes in the area.One of the main attractions of the area can be called the Tate Gallery on Millbank, it covers 5 centuries of the development of art in Great Britain.

Politicians liked Pimlico due to its proximity to Parliament in Westminster. In addition, many famous personalities lived here, the designer Laura Ashley, the actor Laurence Olivier and Winston Churchill himself.

35. Belgravia (Belgravia)

Belgravia is the most prestigious and expensive area of ​​London.

Active development in Belgravia began in 1825 by the 35-year-old architect Thomas Cubitt.And lasted until 1855, until the death of Thomas Cubit, the construction of Belgravia – his famous and monumental project. Thanks to his creations, Eaton Square and Belgrave Square were filled with stately and elegant buildings. Today, the buildings on Belgrave Square are for the most part the residences of the ambassadors of the leading countries of the world.

Prosperity is felt here in everything. This is a completely different life – the flow of life seems to be in slow motion, the squares and the adjacent streets are always in perfect order, which is a great rarity for such a big city like London.

An expensive car with a chauffeur is always parked at each front entrance, waiting for rich ladies who will go shopping in London’s elite boutiques or to a dinner party.

Property prices in Belgravia have always been very high. For example, buying a house in Belgravia for £ 10 million is perfectly fine. And recently, Russians are increasingly interested in real estate in Belgravia, and some well-known Russian oligarchs have already bought real estate here.The number of transactions for the purchase of real estate is extremely small, due to the extremely limited supply and, of course, the size of the value of such objects.

36. Westminster (Westminster)

Office district, many government agencies, ministerial buildings and after the end of the working day there are almost no people on the streets – this was until recently the Westminster district (not to be confused with the municipality of the same name, which includes most of central London).

But over the past 10 years, Westminster’s housing stock has been actively expanding, mainly thanks to the “state houses”, converted into modern apartments. Due to its close proximity to Parliament, Westminster attracted politicians, parliamentarians and ministerial officials. And thanks to the well-developed transport links, many businessmen also live here.

Westminster has 4 tube stations and all kinds of bus routes, and there is a high-speed train to Gatwick International Airport from Victoria Station every 15 minutes.

The infrastructure of Westminster has also been actively developing over the years – restaurants, bars, department stores, fitness centers, etc. have appeared in large numbers.

The beauty of architecture is striking houses made in the Georgian and Victorian styles, located away from the main streets, and despite the fact that the area is located in the center of London, it is always quiet and peaceful here.

Property prices in Westminster are quite reasonable for central London, especially when compared to prices in the neighboring Belgravia area.

37. Kensington

Kensington has a truly English atmosphere. And in the architecture, a mixture of Victorian and Georgian styles is clearly expressed – mansions made of red brick are adjacent to houses with stucco on the facades.

In recent years, both the popularity of the area and property prices have grown significantly. Large private mansions are most often passed down from generation to generation; such objects are rarely sold. And if such a house appears on the open market, then the buyer will not even bargain and pay the asking price so as not to miss out on the object so desired by everyone.

Residential compounds are popular with foreign buyers, they are relatively new and there are only a few of them, so the demand for them is also quite high.

    HARRODS Department Store

    In 1824, Charles Henry Harrod opened a small grocery store.After 25 years, Harrod acquired a small store on Bromton Road. And 31 years later, in 1880, the grocery store turned into a large store, employing more than 100 people. In 1883, the building was completely destroyed by fire. However, after a very short time, bailing out huge money from Christmas sales, Harrods department store opened its doors again. In the late 19th century, the store was the first in Britain to launch an escalator.

    The department store was sold in 1922, but continued to bear the name of Charles Henry Harrod.In 1985, the Egyptian billionaire Muhammad al-Fayed bought the Harrods department store, on whose instructions the famous “Egyptian elevator” with the figures of the sphinxes was installed, and the memorial fountain of Dodi and Diana was installed. The fountain is adorned with their bronze figures, frozen in dance – this added an even greater spirit of surrealism to the entire department store. Harrods was later sold to the Qatar Investment Fund.

    Harrods – “aristocrat department store”. A gigantic seven-story building that spans an entire block.

    Outside is a masterpiece of Edwardian architecture, beautifully illuminated in the evenings by a few thousand small lamps. Inside there is a luxury museum with exquisite interiors, designer furniture, exclusive and expensive goods. At the entrance there is a strict doorman in livery, letting in only neatly dressed people – this is the policy of the department store – no sportswear, torn or dirty things, beach shoes. The appearance of the visitors should correspond to the aristocratic luxury of the shopping center.

    Any purchase from this department store becomes a great event for ordinary Londoners – a sign of closeness to the highest circles. They are even proud of the branded bags from Harrods, regardless of what exactly was bought. After all, any product in this shopping center is automatically considered the best. Harrods does not sell anything ordinary: only designer clothes, only luxury jewelry, only luxury cosmetics.

    300 departments work in the department store – clothing, sporting goods, footwear, accessories, household goods, liquor stores, furniture, pet stores, antiques, souvenirs.Londoners say that everything can be found in Harrods, without exaggeration. Need a sophisticated royal horse racing hat? Need to order a 10-tier wedding cake? Would you like to buy an antique porcelain service for 300 persons? Or a bag made of crocodile skin caught in Cambodia? Multilingual store employees are not surprised at anything, they just ask clarifying questions and show the right thing.

    Whole days can be spent at Harrods. The department store has grocery stores, a library, dry cleaning and laundry facilities, ticket offices, hairdressers, spas and beauty salons, and even ordering points for church ceremonies! And also several dozen restaurants and bars with prices ranging from reasonable to very high.

    A separate attraction at Harrods is the luxury toilets. There is no other epithet to describe these spacious, tastefully decorated boudoirs where doormen greet visitors (women work in ladies’ toilets). The floors are tiled with mosaics, the doors are made of solid wood, the fittings are gilded. You will be taken to a free booth, the door will be opened politely. And on the dressing tables in front of the mirrors there are bottles of eau de toilette – several different fragrances.

    You can stroll through the halls of the Harrods department store like in a museum. Each room is uniquely decorated in the spirit of antiquity. Intricately decorated ceilings with huge chandeliers, imposing illuminated columns, paintings in gilded frames … A real royal palace. Especially interesting is the Egyptian hall with statues of pharaohs and walls painted with hieroglyphs.

    Harrods to this day remains one of the most luxurious, noisy, glamorous department stores in the world.Harrods Department Store has a huge capacity for conferences and events. In 2012, the year of the Summer Olympics in London, meetings of the members of the Council of the International Olympic Committee were held there. Harrods has a unique VIP shopping experience, with privatizations and personal assistants.

    Harrods is located in Knightsbridge, south of Hyde Park, near Kensington Palace, on Brompton Road. Knightsbridge Tube Station is a five-minute walk away.It is not recommended to visit Harrods on sales days twice a year, when crowds of Londoners and tourists literally attack the building – at such a time the aristocratic gloss of the department store is lost.
