The shopping in London is among the best in the world with something to suit every budget and style. One of the most popular shopping destination in London is Oxford Street which offers something to everyone. Oxford Street is the home to the well-known Selfridges. It also offers a range of popular department stores like John Lewis.
If you have time – go for a window shopping in Bond Street and Mayfair. Great day out with an ice cream and a good place for people watching. Take a cup of latte in South Molton Street and enjoy the “relaxing London”.
My ultimate favourite is Covent Garden if I’d like to have the option to shop as well as want to be entertained. Watch the street dancers and entertainers at Coven Garden and visit the shops and restaurants in Long Acre (only few minutes walk from Covent Garden entertainment area and Apple store).
The world famous Nothing Hill (thanks to the film of the same name, Notting Hill) offers a vast variation of small, unique shops selling unusual and vintage clothing, rare antiques, quirky gifts, books and organic food. Check out the Portobello Road and Noting Hill map and visit the Portobello Road on the Saturday morning.
And lastly, Marylebone High Street. The high street has been voted best high street in London by BBC Radio 4 listeners. This high street combines high class London style with a small village feel, and is definitely worth a visit. The brands there, tend to be in the slightly higher price category, but that way you can purchase without fear of too many crowds and there are some delicious independent shops too. Once the shopping is finished, you can relax in some of the great local pubs and restaurants.
