London is as vibrant and attractive capital city as any other. With its variety of bars and restaurants, it has a dining culture that is one of the best in the world. However, what attracts many people to the UK capital is its reputation as a luxury shopping hotspot.
If you're planning a trip to London, you'll find that this is definitely the case. Whether you are wanting to find the perfect new outfit or something a bit more sparkly, you'll soon discover that you are spoilt for choice.
Here are three of the best luxury shopping destinations in London - no matter what you're after:
Because every killer outfit needs the perfect shoes
Shoes can make a big difference to an outfit, so they are definitely worth the investment and there are a plethora of places to spend your money wisely in London. If designer labels are your thing, then you'll feel right at home here. From Kurt Geiger to Louboutin, you can browse the latest collections from some of the best designers in the world.
For those who aren't loyal to just one name, in Selfridges Shoe Galleries you can walk among all of the masterpieces from the shoe gods in one place and browse until your heart's content.
Getting an outfit for a night on the town
London is bursting with options if you are looking to snap up a brand new designer outfit for your next night out. The iconic and illustrious Bond Street was built on names such as Christian Dior, Gucci, and Armani, and you'll be spoilt for choice no matter what your style.
However, if you don't fancy walking up and down the shops on this famous street, heading to Harrods will also give you plenty of choices for your next luxury purchase. With brands such as Dolce and Gabbana, and Valentino and Alexander McQueen filling the shelves, you may find that you don't want to leave this beautiful department store.
To find that special jewellery set
You can't say jewellery in London without thinking about Selfridges or Tiffany's, but there is much more to discover while you're here if you step away from Bond Street. From the moment you step inside Liberty London, you'll be in awe of the selection of beautiful pieces on display. If you don't want to pick something that is ready and waiting for you, there are also a number of high-end boutiques that allow you to design your own jewellery.
Whether you are looking for a watch, which they design and manufacturer themselves, earrings or rings, the jewellery specialists at Piaget will ensure you create something you love.
No matter where you go in London, you'll be spoilt when it comes to choice over luxury purchases. Our hotel, nestled in the heart of Kensington, is the perfect place to come back and relax after a hard day's shopping. Why not even treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea to round off your day?
