As of 2019, there were no fewer than 6,830 retail stores throughout the greater London metropolitan area. Of course, the number of high-end locations is much less as these tend to cater to a niche audience. Let’s take a look at eight must-see venues if you hope to make the most out of your next visit.
Associated with well-known brands such as Gucci and Tom Ford, Sloane Street is ideal for those who wish to add to their current fashion ensembles. There are also plenty of window displays to browse if you are instead simply looking to enjoy a casual outing.
Dover Street Market
Boasting no fewer than six floors, the Dover Steet Market is found only a stone’s throw away from the National Gallery; a nice feature in terms of a day trip. The Dover Street Market places a significant amount of focus upon eastern retailers and there are many shops to explore.
While taking advantage of quality London luxury serviced apartments, why not absorb an equally luxurious experience by visiting Harrods? This retail centre is actually considered to be the largest European department store due to the fact that it is separated into no fewer than 330 individual sections.
The Royal Exchange
In terms of sheer opulence, The Royal Exchange aims to please. This shopping centre is home to high-end brands such as Jo Malone London and Paul Smith (amongst others). There is also bar and a café if you wish to sit back and relax during your visit.
This Mayfair shopping outlet is arguably one of the most famous in all of London. Bond Street is home to a host of famous names including (but not limited to) Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton and Burberry. It should also be noted that Bond Street houses the largest Louis Vuitton shop in Europe.
King’s Road is nestled between Chelsea and Fulham; making it quite easy to find even for those who are unfamiliar with the London metropolitan area. King’s Road offers plenty of luxury brands such as Peter Jones and it also provides a choice of shops devoted to the art of interior decoration.
Fortnum & Mason
