8 Favorite London Shops

London is one of the world’s great shopping cities, though not the cheapest. Tempting luxury goods can be found throughout the center, so the problem becomes narrowing down where to go.

Eliminating the stretches of luxury chains is no great sacrifice, since places like Regent Street and Old Bond Street can be found in major cities around the world. Instead, I recommend concentrating on the clusters of interesting independent stores. These sets of shops were especially fun to browse.


The bespoke suits of Savile Row remain as alluring as ever, but the well-dressed man should also consider a stroll along Chiltern Street, best known for the trendy Chiltern Firehouse restaurant and hotel. Nowadays, several attractive clothing boutiques line the street, along with a handful of other impressive independent businesses.
