That's what London can offer you, but this is only one of hundreds of ways to visit this extraordinary town. From fashion boutiques to the big institutions like Marks & Spencer or Selfridges, to the multiclored stores of music chains HMV and Virgin, to a wide range of bookshops /mainly concentrated at the eastern end of Oxford street/Charing Cross road, to fashion stores and boutiques, to sex shops ... Indeed in London you can find anything you might wish, There is even a list of 'London's top 10 tempting stores': amond them the most glamorous grocer Fortnum & Manson (Piccadilly), Harrods (Knightsbridge), Waterstone's (Piccadilly), Europe's biggest bookshop whioch is worth a visit for its interior of the 1930s.
One cannot miss the area of Covent Garden, its market, its shops, its theatres, opera house, cafès and bars, one of the most pleasant shopping London areas. If you look for most famous European designers (like Armani or Versace) or some of the best-quality British accessories (like Mulberry's leather handbags and Church's traditional English shoes) just walk along New Bond street. Since you cannot but visit some of the many museums in town, do not forget that the shop inside the Victoria and Albert Museum (South Kensington) sells beautiful scarves in silk and organza and a stunning collection of Raku ceramics while at the Natural History Museum you can find prodcts made from recycled or raw materials. We suggest a weekend or city breaks, you can enjoy your shopping days, you can choose in many hotels in London to book your cheap or luxury room . Shopping in London is quite an experience!!!
