• Broadway market London
  • Before a community group of volunteers resuscitated the fortunes of this ailing east London street back in 2004, Broadway Market was home to a lone fruit and vegetable seller. Since then, it has grown exponentially to become one of London’s most popular weekly markets. Primarily famous for its food, the narrow street is lined with stalls selling anything from salt beef bagels and Vietnamese banh mi, to fine cheeses and traditional British pies… More info

  • Search & rescue  London
  • When three friends decided to take over a fledgling lifestyle shop in the heart of Stoke Newington, they immediately bought into the mission statement that doubles as the name. Much of the store’s product is a result of this noble pursuit of searching out old, forgotten pieces and rescuing them in the hope of giving them another life – hence, Search & Rescue. Through the door, the first thing you’ll notice is the amazing smell, which comes… More info

  • Aida London
  • Located in Shoreditch, an area becoming as famous for independent fashion as it is for nightlife, Aida is a spacious, modern, multi-concept store. Not content to stick to men’s and women’s fashion, you’ll find vintage furniture, coffee, cake and an in-house hair and makeup salon to go along with a range of regular in-store events, exhibitions and community projects.

  • Cadenhead's whiskey shop & tasting room London
  • Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop and Tasting Rooms fits right in with the first-rate boutiques and restaurants that line the backstreets of Marylebone. A regal, family-owned Scottish company, Cadenhead’s began as a distillery in 1828. In 1842 it expanded as a bottler, but it wouldn’t be until a boozy lunch in Charing Cross’ legendary Gordon’s Wine Bar that the decision to open its first London shop in 1995 came about. Packed into its small ground floor… More info

  • Stanfords London
  • Curious day-trippers, confused tourists, open-minded holidaymakers and fearless explorers have been providing a footfall of loyal patrons to Stanfords since its establishment in 1853. Starting out with cartographic services (mapmaking and printing), the store’s current collection has expanded to weave in all things related to travel. Mapping still plays a large part in the multi-level store, and famous customers to have utilized its services… More info

  • Nook London
  • Put simply, Nook, established in 2012 by three friends, is a collection of “the things they like.” Fortunately for Stoke Newington Church Street, the things they like happen to be a covetable collection of lifestyle products from Kaweco fountain pens to HAY flower pots. With backgrounds in styling, retail management and PR, owners Jack, Kate and Gemma launched Nook to become the shop that the area was missing. Popular with the creative… More info

  • Peter harrington London
  • Are you proud of your bookshelves or could they do with a little pimping out? Something to the tune of a Harry Potter first edition or a super-rare copy of Helmut Newton’s first monograph could do just the trick. This is where Peter Harrington, one of London’s finest rare and antiquarian booksellers, comes in. With locations in Mayfair and Kensington, the two classically-styled stores deal in a range of literature and artists’ books. “Our aim is… More info

  • Toybox London
  • Most of us can probably remember our favorite toy store growing up (hopefully it wasn’t Toys R Us), which is part of the thrill of visiting Toybox in Victoria Park Village. Staunchly independent since 2009, the small Hackney children’s store is a true neighborhood gem. Piled high with all sorts of goods both classic and resolutely contemporary (think marbles juxtaposed with superhero Legos), the shop offers nostalgic memories for you and, more… More info
