Favourite Places to Shop in London

March 16, 2014
favourite places to shop london.jpg

First things first, Tower Bridge clearly isn’t my favourite place to shop – but it is about as iconic London as you can get…so seemed fitting. But when it comes to shopping, I am pretty lucky to be living in one of the best shopping cities in the world. London definitely doesn’t have a shortage of retail outlets, but with a city like London there’s also the opportunity to venture away from the more ‘typical’ places such as Oxford Street or the two Westfield shopping centres (FYI – Westfield Shepherds Bush is a much nicer experience in my opinion that Westfield Stratford). So I wanted to do a little whistlestop rundown of some of my favourite places to shop in London and why – then read on and find out how you can win £100 Marriott Hotel Vouchers below.

Covent Garden

Ok, so it is a massive tourist trap, not denying that – but I’ve always loved Covent Garden for a touch of shopping. Or even just for people watching. The trick is to take a left out of the tube station and head down the road next to Marks & Spencer. Instead of turning right and heading into the square. Sure, the square now houses places such as the Burberry Beauty Box alongside Chanel & Dior. Plus there’s the huge Apple store and the market – but the real gems are to be found in and around Seven Dials.

Angel, Islington

I am bias on this one as it is my local ‘hood – not that I am cool enough to use the word ‘hood. But still… but I love a wander around Angel. The main selling point for me in the Angel/Upper Street area is probably the huge amount of places to eat (including a fairly new branch of Five Guys that I’m desperate to pay a visit to), but in between there’s also a fab selection of shops. The best thing is that whilst there are some typical chain stores (H&M, Monsoon, Oasis, Fat Face, Gap etc) there’s also a big selection of unique stores or much smaller chains with more unique stuff (think Oliver Bonas). Basically you can either stick to the Angel tube end of things, mostly around Chapel market and the N1 Centre – or you can take a wander along Upper Street. I would suggest the latter as there’s loads to discover – from amazing jewellery stores to quirky shoe places and boutiques – plus there’s a Whistles and a few other more ‘mainstream’ options too.

St Christopher’s Place

This isn’t the biggest of shopping destinations, but at just a stones throw (literally) from Oxford Street (you take a turn down the tiny alley next the the H&M close to Bond St Station) but St Christopher’s Place is a gorgeous little area with pretty streets, lots of lunch options for a break from the retail therapy. Plus there are a few of my favourite shopping gems – the Mulberry store there is always much quieter than the concession in Selfridges or the flagship on Bond Street. There’s a good sized Whistles that’s also very quiet but has a big range of stock to browse – then there’s the old fashioned sweet store that I just love. I’ve actually written an article for the soon to launch Groupon blog that I shall link to when it goes live that has some more detail about this area and the fab stores you can find here.

WIN: £100 Marriott Voucher

    Camden market has to be the top of my list for shopping in London with all of it’s unique alternative stores and the wide array of things you can buy on the market itself! Also the ‘food market’ there is amazing and you always end up trying something new :)

    Oxford street. I miss it so much now i moved but i have no paticular favourite shop, its just a lovely place to buy from 😀

  • Reply susan willshee March 23, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Like you, I’m a fan of Covent Garden because I love the random entertainment I see whenever I visit. Sometimes it’s opera singers, sometimes jugglers, etc. I also love Borough Market down by Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. The only problem with that place is that I always end up buying loads and loads of fruit and veg and then struggling to carry it!

  • Reply Bonnie King March 23, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    I would love to have a mooch around Camden Market. Heard it’s brilliant for little shops etc.

  • Reply Sam Furniss March 23, 2014 at 11:40 pm

    My favourite place to shop is Neal Street and Neal’s Yard because there are lots of little shops with really different, quirky things for sale.
