Where To Go Shopping In London

 

One of the most visited cities in the world, London is home to tourist sites such as Big Ben, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square, and many more. However, its array of shops is equally as impressive, ranging from tiny independent shoemakers and crammed vintage shops to spacious boutiques and beautifully arranged design stores - even the most obscure item can be found. All scattered around Oxford Street, Covent Garden, Brick Lane and Camden, and many other popular shopping areas. Give yourself a little direction and check out our list of the top stores in the city.
