London shopping trips incorporate everything from the world’s most exclusive designer stores – think the boutiques of Mayfair – to grabbing a bargain in a market stall on Brick Lane.
For upmarket shopping in chic surroundings, head to Knightsbridge, home to Harrods, Europe’s biggest department store. This enormous shopping landmark occupies over five acres of space with its many departments and opulent décor, offering the perfect shopping excursion all under one roof. No shopping experience in London would be complete without a visit to Oxford Street, which has been London’s most famous shopping thoroughfare for over a century. It’s lined with flagship branches of major British brands, like Topshop, Marks and Spencers and Selfridges.
Royal Academy and Luxury London Shopping
Start your day off in the grand surroundings of The Wolseley where you can breakfast on anything from a caviar omelette to healthy birchermüesli. After breakfast, cross over the road to the Royal Academy of Arts and spend the morning exploring the acclaimed gallery’s latest art exhibition. Exit the Royal Academy and cross back over Piccadilly to Fortnum & Mason. This glorious food emporium stocks the finest delicacies from around the world.
Afternoon – From food to fashion, explore the very best boutiques London has to offer along Bond Street, Burlington Street and the Royal Arcades. All are located in close proximity to one another and are home to many world-famous designers. Then, fully refreshed, head to nearby Jermyn Street where you’ll find some of the finest gentlemen’s outfitters around, including Dunhill and John Lobb.
Evening – For something completely different, head to Floridita in the heart of Soho. Here you can enjoy a selection of Latin American classics, mouth-watering steaks and delicious cocktails while you enjoy live music.
Champagne on the London Eye
In the morning, head to the Petrichor restaurant at The Cavendish Hotel for a truly indulgent British breakfast. The hot and cold buffet includes everything from cereals to Scottish salmon, and the chef will freshly prepare many more dishes according to your preferences.
Hail a black cab and head over to Tate Modern, where you can take a special guided tour for two with an expert guide (tours should be booked two weeks in advance). Then take a ride on the iconic London Eye. Hire your own private Champagne Tasting Capsule to enjoy the spectacular 30-minute ’flight’ in style.
Stroll along the River Thames, taking in the city skyline, and head to your lunchtime destination, Le Pont de La Tour. Located right on the river, the restaurant has panoramic views and serves delicious modern French cuisine.
Afternoon – Lounge in comfort at Harrods while a team of experts scours the prestigious store on your behalf, arranges one-to-one designer appointments and caters to your every need. Once you have sent your purchases back to your hotel, make your way to one of London’s most fashionable and colorful districts, Notting Hill.
In the evening – make your way to Babylon for a unique dining experience. Perched on the seventh floor, it offers a spectacular views over London’s skyline and access to three beautiful rooftop gardens – complete with trees, wildlife and flowing stream.
