Book a train ticket to London and enjoy an afternoon trawling the city’s swanky shopping districts. Refresh your wardrobe in time for the warmer months and feel glamorous throughout the year, with some of the best places to shop it the capital:
Oxford Street
With virtually every well-known high-street store imaginable – including a sizeable Selfridges – Oxford Street is the place to be to find the latest fashion trends. Get lost in your favourite shops and emerge with a handful of bags before enjoying a spot of lunch at a nearby restaurant. Located near to Oxford Circus tube line, the rest of London’s within easy access and the West End’s just two stops away!
Regent Street
Make your way from Oxford Street to Regent Street and explore some of the city’s oldest and most-loved shops. Spend hours browsing the incredibly selection of bears, puzzles and toy cars in Hamleys (the finest toy shop in the world) or check out the designer wear in Jaeger and Hugo Boss. Don’t miss Ted Baker and the other designer stores along the strip and feel like a celebrity in the Ferrari Store. The shops along Regent Street radiate class and stock quality products that should last and last – so what you waiting for?
Jermyn Street
If you like the finer things in life, head to Jermyn Street and enjoy a shopping experience to remember. With a reputation for suiting and booting gentlemen, Jermyn Street is world-famous for its shirt makers and is a great place to buy high-quality attire. There’s also an impressive range or women’s clothes available and a remarkable selection of beautiful jewellery. Two arcades can be found just off the street and both house wonderful, small boutiques.
Burlington Arcade
Buy a weekend return train ticket to London and head to the wonderfully historic Burlington Arcade – Britain’s very first shopping centre. Walk through the longest covered shopping street in England and browse some of the most luxurious clothes and accessories in the world. Treat yourself to some glittering jewels or purchase a high-quality leather watch. If you fancy a bite to eat, The Ritz is nearby, so you could always pop in for afternoon tea (if you still have cash to spare).
The shopping place of the rich and famous, Knightsbridge is one of London’s most famous shopping districts. Home to world-famous stores including Harvey Nichols and Harrods, this classy part of the city offers a unique shopping experience. Beautiful, old-fashioned buildings decorate the area and the shops are lined with high-quality goods. You could spend an entire day strolling around this wealthy area, so make sure you leave plenty of time to explore properly.
Whether you prefer high street stores or quality boutiques, London has something for you.

My favourite place to shop was the Camden Market area. I bought some really cool one of a kind places. I think I spent the most money there hehe.
