The best shopping streets in London
This street in the centre of London is one of the best known shopping streets in the British capital.
Regent Street is mainly famous for its upscale shops but don’t worry, there are actually shops for every budget.

Other famous shops on the street are Liberty and the Apple shop. You will also find the luxury men’s clothing store Jermyn Street in an alley perpendicular to Regent Street.
Oxford Street is another street in central London, very close to Regent Street. It has a lot of shops where shopping fans have to go (even if they don’t buy anything).
It is, without a doubt, the most famous shopping street in the world. You will find a lot of shops and the most popular brands, affordable or not, all have premises on this street.
But this is also where you will see one of the cheapest shops in London: Primark. Of course they have other brands all over the city and that’s why we advise you to check their locations because the main one, Oxford Street, is always busy and you can spend a lot of time (too much) of your time looking for what you want and queuing.
Other places you don’t want to miss on this street are Selfridges, John Lewis or Debehams.
If you come to Oxford Street to do your Christmas shopping, you can enjoy the spectacle created by the decorations that fill the street.

This street is located west of the city centre just south of Hyde Park. Even if you don’t go shopping, you’ll probably end up on this street.
Indeed, Knightsbridge is definitely one of the shopping streets you will pass through whether you are shopping or visiting.
And the shop that you can’t help whether you want to buy something there or not is Harrods, the city’s best-known large warehouses. Although the store has a reputation for being quite expensive, it is where you will find the best souvenirs in London.
Another shop for shopping lovers on this street is Harvey Nichols. They sell clothes as well as accessories and cosmetics. They have their own restaurant and food shop.
This street in the West End of central London is located in the Chelsea area. It’s a bit far from the other streets we mentioned but still a good shopping option.
