Michael Jackson - Shopping in London. [1] [2] [3] [4]

 

 

Being the capital of England, London has plenty of places for you to enjoy some retail therapy—shop ‘til you drop!

 

 

 

Oxford Street

 

 

Home to the most famous names in shopping, along Oxford Street you can find every shop imaginable. Visit Topshop and Mango, or head to the large department stores of John Lewis, Debenhams and Selfridges.

 

 

Bond Street

 

 

If you have still have the cash to spend after splashing out on your Michael Jackson ticket, then Bond Street is the place to go shopping when you have a fat wallet. Home to the big designer names, you can find Gucci, Chanel, DKNY, Prada and Alexander McQueen in Old Bond Street, whilst New Bond Street has Miu Miu, Russell and Bromley, Calvin Klein and Emporio Armani.

 

 

London’s Famous Stores

 

 

If you haven’t heard of Harrods then you mustn’t be shopping on this planet. The huge department store in Knightsbridge has seven floors, including a food market and pet shop. Be warned that if you want to buy more than just a small bag of sweets, you’ll have to spend an extraordinary amount of cash! Still, it’s always nice to have a look around—even the toilets are designed so elegantly, they look like those from a Harry Potter film.

 

 

Hamley’s, the greatest toy store in the world, is every child’s heaven, but it doesn’t mean adults won’t enjoy it either. Found on Regent Street, every floor of this seven storey building is dedicated to toys, toys and more toys, from Lego to Barbie to bears to china dolls. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the top floor whilst watching the miniature toy train on its journey!

 

 

Places to Visit

 

 

Trafalgar Square cannot be missed. Just down The Mall from Buckingham Palace, the Square is dominated by the 169ft Nelson’s Column, a commemoration to Lord Nelson who defeated the French and the Spanish in the Battle of Trafalgar. The fountains in the Square and the lions surrounding the Column make brilliant photograph points.

Leicester Square can be easily found from Trafalgar Square, and its not far from the shopping, being just a few roads down. This place is bustling at night, with many coming here to enjoy drinks in one of the stylish bars. You can come to Leicester Square to purchase tickets for some of the best West End shows, or catch a film at the internationally known Leicester Square Odeon cinema.

Covent Garden doesn’t seem a part of London at all, seeming more like a small village plonked in the centre of a big city. The outdoor performance artists always offer great entertainment for everyone, and both the indoor and outdoor market stalls will have something that catches your eye—from novelty key rings (of red double decker buses or telephone boxes) to fashionable jewellery such as rings and bracelets.
