Each shopping districts/streets in London have their own vibe and specialties so read below to see where is the best shopping in London for your personal shopping experience.

 

 


Oxford Street

Oxford Street is considered the centre of London’s shopping world.

Holding well over 300 shops, 4 underground stations, as well as flagship stores for numerous companies, Oxford Street is not only the busiest shopping location in London it’s the largest shopping district in existence.

Here you will find shops known around the world: Topshop, Selfridge’s, Debenhams, H&M, and Uni Qlo and the largest Primark in the world just to name a few.

http://oxfordstreet.co.uk/shopping/ Underground Stations: [East to West] Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus, Bond Street & Marble Arch

Once you’ve finished shopping, you’ll definitely be ready for a bite to eat (and maybe a cheeky drink or two), or perhaps you’d like to have some tasty treats in the morning and walk it off with some shopping afterwards!


Bond Street

Bond Street is all about luxury! If you’re looking for designer labels, this is where to go, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, Michael Koors…the list goes on.

Bond Street also holds the only Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie & Fitch in the U.K.

 

 

If your budget won’t stretch to Bond Street, it is worth just walking down the road to peek into some of the most glamorous window displays in town.

Underground Stations: Bond Street, Piccadilly Circus


Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus is famous the world over for its’ vibrant, flashing lights and the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain (the incorrectly dubbed “statue of Eros”).

But, in addition to being a traffic hub, it’s also surrounded by great shopping.

To the north of Piccadilly Circus is Regent Street – as we’ve detailed already.

It also edges on Soho which is full of funky independent shops, fascinating stores, vintage fabric and clothing, as well as great nightlife.

 

 

To the West, is the street of Piccadilly itself, which is home to the stunning Fortnum & Mason’s – one of London’s first department stores, erected in 1707, as well as Waterstones, one of the largest bookstores in Europe.

If you’d like to find out more about Piccadilly Circus and this beautiful part of town, make sure to join our Soho, Piccadilly Circus, and Chinatown Tour or our Rock n’ Roll Tour!

Regent Street

Perhaps the most atheistically pleasing of all the shopping districts listed here, Regent Street was designed by master architect Sir John Nash in the 19th century.

With huge sweeping vistas and different decorations throughout the year (including impressive Christmas displays), Regent Street is a picturesque place to spend your pennies.

Located here are range from the top end (Liberty of London and Ferrari) to fun and affordable.

 

 

Keep an eye out for Hamleys – the largest toy store in London and a must-visit destination for those traveling with children!

Often it is possible to visit Barbie, Captain John Sparrow and the like standing outside the shop and visiting is a sensory experience for people of all ages.

Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street was the heart of swinging London in the 1960s and still offers quirky and glam shops, international brands, and unique one-of-a-kinds.

Boasting over 150 different shops and over 50 restaurants and bars, Carnaby is a great place to shop off the main roads of London and is a wonderful place to get lost!

 

 

Cobbled roads, small centres, alleys, and dead ends, Carnaby Street is on the edge of Soho and is a great destination for those who like to stumble upon interesting shops and bars during their visit.  

http://www.carnaby.co.uk/ Underground Stations: Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus


Knightsbridge

Shopping in Knightsbridge is definitely not for those travelling on a budget!

Here you will find some of the most prestigious and famous retail and fashion names in the world, Prada, Gucci, Burberry, Agent Provocateur, and even Christian Louboutin – this district is all about high fashion.

Knightsbridge is also home to two of the best-known department stores in Europe: Harvey Nichols and Harrod’s.

 

 

Harrod’s is worth browsing even if guests do not have the intent to buy and goods in their food halls can oftentimes be affordable.

Underground Station: Knightsbridge

After a bit of shopping in beautiful Knightsbridge, what better way to finish your retail experience than by visiting the most luxurious department store in the world – Harrods!

Once you’ve enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings that Harrods has to offer, consider exploring the rest of Knightsbridge with our Self-Guided Knightsbridge and Chelsea Tour that will take you through some of the most glamourous neighbourhoods in town and finishes along the iconic River Thames!


King’s Road

In the heart of Chelsea lies the King’s Road – a singular stretch of eclectic shops, clothing boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

From high fashion at shops owned by names as recognisable as Vivienne Westwood to antiques at the Chelsea Antiques Market, King’s Road is a broad mix of different types of shops and stores.

A true London shopping experience, King’s Road is a destination for celebrities in London as well as locals and tourists alike.

 

 

http://www.visitlondon.com/things-to-do/place/29445369-kings-road Underground Station: Sloane Square

Not only is Chelsea a great area to celebrity-spot and shop, but it’s also a great London district for literary lovers.

Chelsea is an area jam-packed with locations associated with some of the world’s best-known writers.

We’ve composed a helpful Self-Guided Literary Tour of London that will take you not only past the shops but also through history as you check out the homes of celebrated authors from throughout history, such as Oscar Wilde, George Eliot, Mark Twain, and Bram Stoker.


Covent Garden

Covent Garden has hosted a market for centuries and it is still operating to this day.

Market stalls with handmade goods and crafts as well as cheap clothing and souvenirs, Covent Garden’s Market provides a true London market shopping experience.

 

 

However, Covent Garden is also home to recognisable shops based here permanently (Apple and The Body Shop, for example) and is filled with cobbled roads, eclectic boutiques…and even one of the finest cheese stores in London (Neal’s Yard Dairy)!

A great place to ‘get lost’ Covent Garden provides good shopping for any budget and a variety of retail ranges.

Not only is Covent Garden one of the best shopping districts in town, it also happens to be one of the best places to grab a bite to eat!

And amongst the hundreds of shops, you’ll find a hundred places to satisfy your appetite.

Since Covent Garden is a mix of authentic London restaurants, as well as restaurant tourist traps, we’ve put together a Self-Guided Food Tour of Covent Garden to help you taste the best that this neighbourhood has to offer!


The Royal Exchange

Located in the heart of London’s financial district, the Royal Exchange previously hosted the centre of commerce for the City of London.

Today, however, the Royal Exchange hosts a variety of luxury shops, Rolex, Tiffany & Co., Hermes, Gucci…just to give an idea.

 

 

Luxury restaurants and champagne bars are a great place to take a shopping break and the location of the Royal Exchange, the opposite side of town from our other shopping centres, means it is oftentimes not as busy as the better-known shopping locations of London.

Westfield

Yes, these are just regular malls. Asian and European visitors are big on Westfield although Americans aren’t bothered since we have them everywhere!)

The newest additions to the London shopping scene, London’s two Westfield malls – Shepherd’s Bush and Stratford – are two of the largest urban shopping centres in all of Europe. 

Located entirely indoors, they also make excellent places to browse and shop when the London weather isn’t too cooperative! 

Both Westfields are divided into two parts – the standard shopping areas and the luxury departments.

 

 

This means there are the standard names you’d expect to see (Marks & Spenser, House of Fraser, Debenhams, Primark) as well as top labels known the world over (Jimmy Choo, Tag Heuer, and Ted Baker). 

With over 275 shops in each, more than three dozen places to eat overall, as well as seasonal ice rinks and cinemas, the Westfields are one-stop shops for a retail day out.  

Nearest Tube Stations: Shepherd’s Bush, White City, Stratford.

London’s Bargain Markets – Tired of treading the shops? Or are you a bargain hunter who loves to haggle? Then perhaps you’d like to shop in some of the best-known markets in the world! We’ve got handy guides to help you choose which market has what you want to buy!


Camden Market 

Located in Northwest London on the bank of Regent’s Park, Camden Market is actually a series of open-air and indoor markets, along with food stalls, retail shops, bars, and restaurants.

Open every day of the year (aside from Christmas), the weekends are still the best time to visit as that is the only time to guarantee all the stalls will be open.

For those who are adventurous, off-beat, or just a little bit quirky, Camden is the place to head.

 

 

In Camden, vintage shops, piercing parlours, and tattoo artists reside alongside stalls selling food from all around the world.

Home to a thriving counter-culture community, Camden is a haven for those who are fans of the extreme and outlandish.

An explosion of colors and textures, art, and antiques, Camden Market is a bustling complex well worth a visit.


For the gastronomists among you, Borough Market is your sure fire stop for delicious and authentic London food and drink.

One of the oldest markets in London, Borough operates on a wholesale level on weekday mornings and is open to the public for commercial trade on weekday lunchtimes and all day on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Located under beautifully architected structures dating from the 19th century to the 1930s, Borough can be found in Southwark, just below the River Thames.

 

 

Originally focused on fruit and vegetables, Borough now sells nearly any kind of edible delight one can imagine, showcasing local purveyors from all over the United Kingdom and Europe.

Food is available to eat as soon as you buy it, or you can purchase a multitude of ingredients to create your own meal at home.

From bakeries to butchers, confectionaries to charcuterie, seafood to spices, dairy to drinks – whatever you choose to indulge in, I guarantee you will not leave Borough Market with an empty stomach!

Check out our self-guided Borough Market Food Tour, where you can easily what we recommend trying.


The largest antiques market in the entire world, Portobello showcases over 1,000 dealers in one localised area in the west of London.

The antique showcases at Portobello are a Saturday operation, with many stalls opening at 8:30 or 9:00 am and oftentimes packing up by 4 pm.

 

 

Easily the busiest market in London, it is best to visit Portobello first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds.

100’s of stalls, stands, shops and arcades are located along Portobello Road, providing some of the most unique antique items available in the capital.

Bric-a-brac, jewelry, art and artifacts, crystal, silver and gold, books or clothes – whatever you may be after, you are sure to find it at Portobello.

On Saturdays, there are also a number of food trucks and stalls set up so that you may refuel with delicious delights whilst you shop!

Portobello offers the opportunity to come face-to-face with some of London’s most experienced market operators who will be more than happy to haggle and bargain with anyone who is up to the task!

(Tour Guide Margaret is leading the Westminster Tour, the City of London Tour, or the All-in-One Tour with Free Tours by Foot.)


Leadenhall Market

((Just a note that we don’t visit in on the regular HP Tour, but it’s included in the Audio Guide and on our web pages so I”ve noted that at the bottom.))

Located in the City of London, Leadenhall Market is a true treasure.

Leadenhall is a covered market and the ornate rooftop, as well as the cobbled floors, were designed in 1881 and are nearly all original, although there was some redecoration done in the 1990s.

The Market is only open Monday – Friday as most of the trade here comes from the thousands of office staff who work in the offices of the City.

 

 

Most of the shops here are upscale – again, fitting in with its’ location in the financial district – but there are also affordable stores as well as great options for lunch, which makes it worth a stop.

Aside from Leadenhall’s offerings, it is also well known for playing the role of Diagon Alley in the first Harry Potter films!

If you want to know more about that, check out our page on Harry Potter in London. Our Self-Guided Audio Tour includes a stop here so make sure to download before you go!

The Audio Guide also has a bonus for those of you who are big Potter-heads who like to shop, as we will guide you to King’s Cross Station to the Platform 9 3/4 store – absolutely packed with everything Potter you can possibly imagine!

Nearest Tube Station: Monument, Aldgate, Liverpool Street


Spitalfields Market

There has been a market in Spitafields for over 300 years and the newest version is entirely covered and filled with myriad shops, stalls, and restaurants.

The Victorian structure holds a number of smaller markets within, including street food, antiques, second-hand books, and handmade goods just to name a few. This is a great place to grab a bargain and a bite all at the same time.

In the heart of the East End, Spitalfield’s has seen a lot of history, some of which you can experience if you join us on our tours!

 

 

Our East London Food Tour encapsulates the story of this vibrant section of London’s East End, as told through the amazing food and drink your guide will share with you.

The bohemian and immigrant cultures here have also led to a booming street art scene which we’d be happy to introduce you to on our Street Art and Graffiti Tour.

And for those who like things a bit darker, a number of Jack the Ripper’s victims lived and died along the nearby streets and our guides will show you where it all played out on our Jack the Ripper Tour.

Snow flurries welcome shoppers back to Oxford Street as lockdown eases

On Oxford Street some customers queued from 5.30am as major stores including Primark prepared to open their doors.

As the shutters went up at JD Sports at 7.30am a gaggle of shoppers were seen dashing into the store, keen for their first bricks and mortar retail experience since January.

Non-essential retail and outdoor hospitality is reopening today across England’s lockdown eases. Industry bosses are hoping for a £500 million spending splurge in the capital this week after the sectors were battered by Covid restrictions.

The Standard visited Oxford Street this morning, where shoppers seemed undeterred by bracing temperature as the UK experienced its coldest start to April for eight years.

Coming out of Primark, 16-year-old Maddison Courby, said: “I feel so much better now that things have opened up again because I’ve just been stuck indoors.

“I don’t really like online shopping either which is why we got up so early.”

Jeremy Selwyn

The Wandsworth based student said she had queued up since 5:30am with her friend, Millie Bourbon, 17.

Millie said: “I’m excited to be able to go out again and enjoy things with my friends.”

She revealed that she had bought a new tracksuit, while her friend had gone for a set of casual clothes.

Student Jane, 20, from south west London said: “We came out today because we just want to feel a sense of normality. We haven’t bought anything but we’ve just been in lockdown for so long – it’s just nice to feel normal again.

“I’m excited for the pubs to open too because I haven’t seen my friends in so long.

Simon, 42, a Bolt driver working in the area, said he was “excited” that shops and restaurants were opening up again because it meant a “boom in business” for his industry.

“I’ve been working since the start of the year and although I’ve been busy I know I’ll be more busy now that things have picked up again.”

Jeremy Selwyn

But the Dagenham based driver warned that it was important for people to “work as a community to avoid another lockdown.”

Jessica, 17, from South Norwood, came out of Primark holding four shopping bags.

Jeremy Selwyn

The college student told the Standard she had lined up since 6:30am to make sure she was one of the first in the store.

“It wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be if I’m honest but I’ve bought everything that I could find from bags, bras to clothes. 

“There were quite a few sales and discounts so I made sure to take advantage of those too.”

Ikea buys former Topshop Oxford Circus store in London

Ikea is buying the former flagship Topshop store on Oxford Circus for its latest city-centre shop in what the world’s largest furniture group branded a long-term vote of confidence in retail in London and the UK.

The group is paying £378 million (€448 million) for 214 Oxford Street and will have its own store with accessories, some furniture and planning studios in about a third of the 22,200 sq m space over seven floors.

“This is a top, top location and we very much believe in London and the UK in the long, long term . . . The UK is also interesting after Brexit. In the long run, we think it’s going to land in a good way here,” Krister Mattsson, managing director of Ingka Investments, the arm of Ikea buying the property, told the Financial Times.

A string of brands that once dominated Oxford Street have fallen victim to Covid-19, clearing space on London’s most famous shopping street for a new type of occupier.

Ikea is increasingly moving away from only having big-box stores on the outskirts of big cities and is experimenting with different types of city-centre outlets from kitchen-planning studios and click-and-collect points to locations holding thousands of different products such as one in Paris.

Long-term tenants

Its Oxford Circus store will not open until 2023 but will follow one in Hammersmith due to open in the next few months. The Oxford Street shop will have click-and-collect as well as click-and-deliver functions and planning studios, typically for kitchens and wardrobes, according to Mr Mattsson. Long-term tenants including Nike and Vans will continue their operations in the building.

Mr Mattsson said that despite a “quite dramatic increase” in online sales at Ikea, which rose from 7 per cent of total revenues in 2019 to 30 per cent this year, “we are still very linked to our bricks and mortar”, stressing that shops were where customers could see the full product range and gain inspiration.

“We will not switch too much into ecommerce. Oxford Street is much more accessible and is [a] way to widen the opportunities of customers to meet Ikea retail,” he added. – Copyright The Financial Times Limited 2021

London news: Hancock tells Britons to avoid Oxford St ‘Don’t come for Christmas shopping’ | UK | News

London is set to grind to a halt as Matt Hancock announced that the city will be moved into Tier 3 restrictions from December 16. The capital, along with the south west of Essex and the south of Hertfordshire, has been subjected to the change due to a “very sharp, exponential rise” in the coronavirus cases. The Health Secretary updated the House of Commons on the decision, adding that this would also affect people’s ability to shop for Christmas in stores.

Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt had asked: “Just 11 days from Christmas, lots of people will be thinking about Christmas shopping.

“From Wednesday if you live outside London will it be against the regulations to come into Oxford Street to do your Christmas shopping?

“If you live inside London will it be against the regulations to do your Christmas shopping.

“Is the only way to do your Christmas shopping legally now to go online?”

Mr Hancock replied: “The question he asks about Christmas shopping is important.

“It is recommended that people should minimise travel unless it is necessary in a Tier 3 area.

“They should also minimise travel where it is necessary to a Tier 3 area.

“And so we have taken this action to try to protect people and to try to slow the spread of this virus and that is absolutely the right thing to do.”

However the policy has sparked concern that it will lead to a huge spike in virus cases, and even potentially a third lockdown in January.

The Chief Medical Officer for England, Chris Whitty, has even strongly advised against “hugging and kissing” elderly relatives during this relaxation period.

During a Downing Street briefing, he said: “Would I want someone to see their family? Of course, that’s what Christmas is about.

“Whether people celebrate Christmas as a festival for themselves or any other belief system, it’s an opportunity for families.

“But would I encourage someone to hug and kiss their elderly relatives? No, I would not. It’s not against the law. And that’s the whole point, you can do it within the rules that are there.”

The very concept of subculture is interpreted as an element of the culture of a society that unites a group of people with a system of values, ways of behavior and self-expression, which differs from generally accepted norms and rules. The variability of subcultures is due to national, age, religious, geographic and other affiliations. One of the most striking examples of subcultures are youth informal organizations, which are full of their diversity.This is not surprising, the word informal itself means not the same as others, individual, uncommon. And young people, as the most sensitive and perceptive category of society, are the first to react to the ongoing changes. Adherents of subcultures, as a rule, have their own symbols, which are expressed in the manner of dressing, behaving in society, listening to certain music and having their own, distinctive from the generally accepted, worldview. There are such a huge number of people living in London that internal traditions, trends and dialects inevitably had to appear in it, which together constitute the phenomenon of a subculture.The role of London in the life of Great Britain is such that it has always become the center of the country’s informal youth movements. The capital of Great Britain has always become the center of the country’s informal youth movements. The Swinging London subculture began in the 1960s with the arrival of the Cultural Revolution, hedonism and optimism. This trend was reflected in music, literature, art and became a lifestyle for some. Icons of this time: -rock groups The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Ian Fleming’s literary character James Bond, Mini-Cooper car, Supermodel Twiggy – flooded London with wild popularity.Swinging London changed in the late 1960s with the entryway of a new hippie subculture that emerged from the west coast of North America. Now it is a city of contrasts and contemporary art, in which all imaginable styles are collected, young people are fuming to the Dub step, And at the Royal Opera they perform Tosca first-class.

90,000 new COVID-19 strain out of control

Another lockdown announced in London. Closed shops again and Christmas completely ruined by the coronavirus. The government explains its decision with the recently discovered new mutation of the coronavirus.

This strain turned out to be 70 percent more infectious than all the previous ones, and supposedly it was he who stole the Christmas holidays from the British like the evil Grinch.In the image of this cartoon character, users of social networks now have only one person – the head of the Cabinet of Ministers Boris Johnson, who announced the quarantine.

The government responds with statistics. Over the past week, the number of infected in England has doubled. On average, 35 thousand people a day are now infected.

“A new strain of COVID-19 is out of control and the only way to get it back under our control is to limit social contact,” says Health Secretary Matt Hancock.

New restrictions have affected London and the South of England – about 18 million people live here. Everyone is ordered to stay at home. Gyms, shopping centers, museums, cinemas are closed. This Lebanese cafe is located in central London near one of the busiest shopping streets – Oxford Street. Usually there are crowds of buyers. The Christmas period has always been considered the most profitable. Now only losses.

“For most businesses, this is death. You can survive a temporary closure once, then a second time, but who can stand it when 75 percent of his profits disappear,” said cafe manager Xavier Ramos.

New measures restrict travel outside the quarantined zone. As soon as this was announced, everyone who decided to make it before additional restrictions came into force rushed to the airports and train stations.

There were many foreigners among those who tried to slip through. And they were worried for good reason. The very next day, almost all European countries closed their borders to those arriving from Great Britain. The Eurotunnel was closed on Sunday evening. France has banned the entry of trucks from England for 48 hours.

There were already big problems at the border due to the ambiguity with Brexit. It looks like the real crisis has already arrived. The British government is meeting today for an emergency meeting. The prime minister has been accused of missing everything by stubbornly promising everyone a peaceful Christmas break.

“Once again, the Prime Minister waited until the very last moment to make this decision. Last week it was clear that the Prime Minister’s plan for an accessible Christmas holiday was too risky.Yet, instead of listening to the concerns and taking them seriously, the prime minister did what he always does – dismissed the protest, ruffled his hair and made a frivolous comment, ”Labor Party leader Kir Starmer said.

Over the long months of the pandemic, the British have already developed a habit of such fluctuations.

A new virus strain has already begun its journey from the south to the north of England. It has already been found in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
