Hamleys, the Apple Store, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan and Tiffany & Co are some of the top brands that have made their home in this vibrant area, as have department stores such as Liberty, Selfridges, Debenhams and John Lewis.
If there is one downside, it‘s the crowds. But you can quickly take a break from them by simply stepping into one of the many side streets... you never know what you might discover!
This West London area offers almost an unlimited array of unique shops offering an even wider types of goods. It is here that the Portobello Road Market is held and where the alternative shopping scene that London is so famous for thrives.
You can also find great organic and fancy food stores such as Whole Foods in the nearby Westbourne Grove.
In fact, fashionistas will love it here. Several prestigious brands and big-name fashion designers have branches on the elegant Sloane Street while smaller scale, yet equally elegant, shops are located on Beauchamp Place and Walton Street.
Hyde Park is conveniently close by to take a breather from shopping.
Here you can find top class fashionable clothes, chic furniture and well-stocked organic food shops. If you’re visiting with children, the London Zoo is located nearby as is Regent’s Park, from where you can enjoy some of the best views across the city.
Its street markets date from the 1970s and are a major tourist attraction in themselves, especially at weekends. Here you can find alternative clothing, books, antiques and bizarre items unavailable anywhere else in the city and at the cheapest prices.
The surrounding shops are also very popular, particularly with the younger crowds, as so are the food stalls.
If you get tired of shopping, you can pay a visit to the Hawley Arms, a pub where the late singer Amy Winehouse made her name.
