The Harrods Shopping Experience

Harrods in Knightsbridge is definitely a unique shopping experience - exclusive range of products, amazing food hall but you will need very deep pockets to buy anything. Definitely worth a browse for a couple of hours though!

Head to historic Greenwich - shop in the great market, open mostly Wednesday through Sundays, where you can buy unique arts and crafts, antiques and collectibles as interesting souvenirs to bring home!

market shopping in London

Hang out in Merton Abbey Mills market for a relaxing weekend in South London and have a look at the handmade goods, antiques, jewellery and crafts. In the old watermill they still have a working pottery.It's lovely to visit for unusual presents! There's even a little textile museum attached recording the site's history...

Brick Lane Market

If you want the real London, go down to the famous Brick Lane market, in London's East End! There's a lively atmosphere where stores and all kinds of stalls sell second-hand goods amongst Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants and trendy bars. Sadly, it's only on Sundays!

Marylebone High Street, London

Marylebone High Street is a great street running north and south from the Euston Road down to Oxford Street in London. The north end is accessed from the Euston road, between Baker street and Regent's Park tube stations-it has character (and you can avoid tourist traps at Baker Street)-sit in the church park amongst the gravestones and have a coffee, visit a pub for lunch or just stay away from Oxford Street and shop in trendy places the locals go.
