Even if I love food, wine and cocktails, I also love to shop. Shopping is something that I always do when I´m traveling outside Sweden. Walk around the town I visit and shop between breakfast and lunch and after lunch on my way back to the hotel for change cloths before dinner. Here is some tips from me for shopping.
Oxford Street is a street that is very popular and long, but after many turns on this street I have got a little bit extra attached with a place that is called; House of Fraser. This place have all I need. A whole floor for just me as man and they have brands like HUGO BOSS, Replay, Tommy Hilfiger, Ted Baker of London ( my favorite ), and many others. They have womens floor, kids, sport, shoes, perfume, handbags, restaurants, The Tea Terrace and so many more things.
Regent Street is a street that is a side street to Oxford Street and more brands stores, so the HUGO BOSS, Tommy Hilfiger, Ted Baker of London and so on is much bigger then the parts the brands gets in the House of Fraser building. On the side streets here you have Heddon Street with Gordan Ramsey restaurant, 28-50 wine workshop & Kitchen, Pollen Street Social. Also when you walk down Regent Street you find your self at Piccadilly Circus after a while. Is a very nice shopping street.
Bond Street is an other side street to Oxford Street and here is the more expensive brands stores. Here you see more wealth and elegants, but I think is a street that have things for everybody. Depends on what you are looking for.
Bicester Village is a outlet village about 40 min train from Victoria Station. Here is also all the big brands and they have big shops, almost so every brands have it´s own house in 2 floors. If you go here, you have to plan for the whole day. They have restaurants and coffee shops and everything you need to be able to stay for a full day of shopping. But you should visit it.
I enjoy London a lot, and I looking forward to every new trip to London because I know I will have a great time on so many different levels.
