Whether you’re interested in unique boutiques, high-street brands or some classic London souvenirs, the capital is one of the top places for shopping in Europe.
With plenty of excellent cafes and restaurants scattered around the shopping districts, it’s easy to spend a full day perusing the delights of the city’s retail industry.
Plus, you can save some extra money for your spendings by opting for the coach rather than the train or your own vehicle.
With guaranteed seats, low advance fares and plenty of luggage space, book one of the many coach services available for a relaxing and hassle-free trip to the capital.
To help you plan your perfect day of retail therapy, here are four areas you simply cannot miss.
1. Regent Street
The retail utopia of Regent Street is full of some of the country’s flagship stores, ranging from the illustrious Niketown megastore to an enormous multi-floor TopShop.
All of the commercial world’s big names are present, making this the perfect spot for anyone looking for the latest trends in fashion, technology and sports.
As well as offering a stunning array of products, the stores here are designed in unique and groundbreaking ways, especially when the festive period arrives.
2. Camden Town
Offering a polar contrast to the glitz and glamour of Regent Street, Camden Town is the perfect place for unique, and sometimes strange, items.
Camden Market in particular is renowned for its cultured selection of products. With a variety of products ranging from goth-inspired clothing to Indian interior design and handcrafted garments, it’s the perfect spot for people looking for something a little different.
3. Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush
As well as its high streets, London is home to Westfield, Shepherd’s Bush - one of the country’s top indoor shopping centres.
Expect many of the world’s biggest brands, including Adidas, Hugo Boss, Cath Kidston and French Connection throughout the many halls of the development.
While many people consider the outdoor options of the capital, Westfield is an excellent alternative that is perfect no matter what the weather is like.
4. Carnaby Street
Known as one of the top destinations for 60s culture, Carnaby Street has preserved a classic atmosphere throughout the decades.
With over 13 streets making up the Carnaby area, shoppers can look forward to over 100 brands, ranging from boutiques and independent retailers to some of the world’s top designer labels.
