Shopping in London

IMG_3406

 

In between visits to cultural institutions, watching Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (amazing) and a few too many visits to the pub, while on holiday in London I have been shopping. And not just a run of the mill trip to the mall shopping, I have been luxury shopping. Well, luxury window shopping for the most part.

These are three of my favourite places to visit in London and I think you might like them too.

 

Burberry Regent Street Flagship

Not only can you shop the British heritage brand’s largest store, you can also dine at Thomas’s,  Burberry’s own cafe. Named for Thomas Burberry, Thomas’s uses all British produce to create a quintessentially British menu. The store is filled with accessories, clothes, scarves and beauty, spread over multiple levels ready for you to get lost in.

Dover Street Market

We have told you all about Dover Street Market in our Leiden shopping guide and it is really worth a visit if you are London. Every level reveals wonders from J.W Anderson to Vetements, Gucci to Simone Rocha, jewellery to cool stuff for your home. We spent almost two hours combing the store from top to bottom and we could have stayed even longer.

Liberty

Housed in a stunning mock-Tudor building on Regent street, Liberty London, is a department store of dreams. Liberty is perhaps most famous for it’s fabrics (the fabric section of the store is incredible) but what amazed me most was the architecture of the store. Each level is broken up into smaller rooms, some even with fireplaces and stained glass windows, all to create the atmosphere of a home. The store is packed with cult beauty brands, luxury fashion, vintage designer pieces, homewares, furniture and more. We came away with a Kenzo tee and an adorable tumbler with a kitten on.

Emma Batchelor

Emma Batchelor

As well as a near obsessive interest in fashion, Emma is a former scientist, occasional contemporary dancer, avid reader and self-confessed cat lady (she has three). Emma lived in Leiden in the Netherlands as a baby and Leiden ought to have been her middle name had her mother thought of it at the time and not chosen Louise instead.
