Shopping in London is an exciting experience and offers something for everyone. Here are the best streets and areas for shopping in the city. A stroll in any of these streets will introduce you to dozens of exciting shops with unique items that range from cheap to high end.

Oxford Street and Regent Street are the most well-known and popular shopping streets of the English capital, offering a range of well-known shops. H&M, Zara, Primark are only some of the huge stores you can find in both streets, alongside local brands.

Bond Street offers a posh selection of designers and luxury stores. If you can’t afford a new Fendi bag, looking at the store windows will be a great experience.

If you are a mall enthusiast, the Westfield Mall has 300 stores and two branches in the London area you should definitely check out.

In the fashionable Shoreditch neighborhood of East London, you will find unconventional fashion. This is a particularly cool neighborhood with unique boutiques and shops. Walking from north to south, you should start at the intersection where Shoreditch High Street and Old Street meet.

Look for excellent stores like “Religion and Aida” (Clothing and Home Goods). Calvert Avenue is home to “Oliver Spencer’s” menswear store and the recommended “Luna & Curious” children’s store.

Further down the road, do not miss Redchurch Street where you can find boutiques alongside well-known brands (like “APC”), and south of it, you will find the Boxpark complex (on Bethnal Green Road) with a variety of small and unique shops.
