July 15, 2021Mannion McGinley0

Leave extra space in your luggage to go on a little shopping spree! You’ll have the chance to shop for world-renowned brands on world-famous shopping streets and walk London with arms full of gifts and other goodies you find to bring home! Here are some of the best spots to hit across the city.


Streets to Know by Name

Oxford Street, Regents Street and Covent Garden are home to all of your favourite brands. Or travel to St. James, Bond Street and Mayfair for some beautiful shops that have luxury goods, designer brands and smaller boutiques.


Hidden Gems

Wander off the high street and head to the West End for some diamond in the rough shopping options. Hit locations like Neal’s Yard, Seven Dials and St. Christopher’s Place. Or, head to the Southbank to shop at Marylebone Village and Gabriel’s Wharf, two more hidden gems of London’s shopping scene.


Never Before Seen 

Hit Coal Drops Yard for independent brands and boutique stores. Or find original shops at Eccleston Yards, the shopping oasis.


London’s Best Markets

Visit London’s most famous market Portobello Road or go to Greenwich Market to browse gifts from local designers. If you’re a particular foodie, London chefs favour Borough Market for their ingredients, it might be fun to try the same!


Fortnum and Mason

For traditional British goods and gifts, head to Fortnum and Mason. There you will find jewellery, accessories, clothes and homeware. Or, head to the Fortnum and Mason food hall with fine tea, patisseries, and scotch eggs that are said to have been created by Mr Fortnum himself in 1738.



If you’re looking for everything designer fashion, hit Selfridges. There you will find all the designer goods you could hope for that are in season and fresh off the runway.



Looking for rare and luxury items? That’s doable at Harrod’s shopping centre. The location has 300 different department stores to get lost in and find the perfect gift. Whether it be a knickknack or a priceless item, you’ll be able to find it.


Liberty London 

Spend an afternoon exploring Liberty London and get a chance to look at some beautiful jewellery pieces and indulgent skincare products. Also, if you head over to the haberdashery area, there you’ll find the famous Liberty fabric.
