4x Shopping in London

© Lonely Planet 4x Shopping in London

Are you spending a weekend in London and would you like to not only enjoy all the sights, but also enjoy shopping? We give tips for nice addresses!

Foyles Bookshop

This established name on Charing Cross Road used to be known as vast, but kafkaesque. The selection is still impressive and now the store is well-arranged too. You will find specific books about London, both non-fiction and fiction, such as NW by Zadie Smith. foyles.co.uk

The MONUmini models of Another Studio, also available in the London Design Museum, exist made of stainless steel parts that you can fold and snap together. Try a small Battersea Power Station or Tower Bridge. another-studio.com

Tatty Devine

Handmade jewelery with striking designs are the main focus of the Brick Lane and Seven Dials locations. There are also laser-cut acrylic chains, for example in the form of a red bus on Route 15 Heritage - the last to use the old Routemasters. tattydevine.com

Climatologists may say that less rain falls annually in London than Paris, Rome, New York or Sydney, but that does not affect the business model of James Smith & Sons, makers of quality umbrellas since 1830. The store is two blocks away from the British Museum, where a rainy day attracts many visitors. james-smith.co.uk
