Shopping in London is an exciting experience. But if you usually shop at high street stores and larger department stores, why not change your habits next time? After you’ve checked into your central London hotel, check out some of these shops.
If you love doing your bit for Mother Earth, you’ll love Unpackaged. Unpackaged takes eco-friendly shopping one step beyond the extra mile. Their fair trade and organic food shop does exactly what it says on the label - they sell everything without a label - or a package! Bring in your own jars, bags, or other containers and only buy what you need, and there’s no waste or packaging to throw away.
Looking for clothes? Merchant Archive, located on Kilburn Lane, offers beautiful vintage fashion, and is known to be a hot spot for celebrities and fashion designers. Find high quality vintage dresses, skirts, shoes, jewellery, lingerie, jackets, capes, and more.
Do you love to read? If so, you need to visit Foyles, located on Charring Cross Road, not far from where the famous book shop (of Helene Hanff fame) once stood at number 84. There’s also a cafe inside, and a selection of antiquarian books.
For geeky toys and gadgets, you’ll want to check out Playlounge on Beak Street. From anime to comics, and from science fiction to children's literature, here you’ll find books, plush toys, action figures, key rings, and more.
While you’re in the city, stay in one of our luxurious central London hotels for easy access to many unique shops. We offer London bars in several of our hotels, and also have conference facilities in London.
