Shopping in London is world-class. Famous department stores such as Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty along with equally well-known speciality stores such as Fortnum & Mason or Covent Garden Market shops make London an attractive shopping destination.
We usually recommend looking at shopping in London from two angles: browsing, getting inspired, even learning some historic facts and actually buying things.
It is not a secret that prices in London will most often be higher than in other fashion capitals of the world. But it is hard to compete with the choice and assortment in London stores. And London has something to offer for every wallet. And most likely there will always be something no one else has and when asked "where did you get this?", you can always proudly say "in London".
House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer, Primark, Debenhams, Topshop, Gap, Benetton, Anthropologie, H&M and so many other stores are there for you.
Oxford Street and Regent Street are the heart of London shopping. There are also several malls within about 1 hour from London and easy to reach - Bicester Village, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City. These offer a great selection and very reasonable prices.
Going to the Royal Opera House? Why not leave earlier and spend an hour at the historic Covent Garden, a covered market and a great piece of architecture? Some brands are overpriced, but you can find some great deals and value among Covent Garden shops.
Don't forget to ask at the stores if there are any discounts for international visitors (there almost always are).
Browse selection by category and plan your shopping spree in London.
