It may be a little early to mention the "C" word, but when it comes to Christmas shopping, it's always best to be prepared (especially in London). If you are planning a trip to London for your Christmas shopping, then we have a list of the best shopping areas and our recommended serviced apartments in London.
1. Mayfair/West End
The heart of the West End shopping district, this area features such shopping favourites as Oxford Street, Bond Street, Regents Street and Carnaby Street. Luxury and High Street shopping blend together in this area and you can find High Street favourites such as Topshop, Primark and H & M alongside luxury department stores such as Selfridges and everything in between. Kid's favourite Hamleys is a shopping hotspot on Regent Street and it's never more popular than at Christmas. Oxford Street alone is lined with over 300 shops which makes it the first stop on any shopping trip to London. The Mayfair/West End area has everything you would need from a shopping trip to London including shops, department stores, restaurants and entertainment.
2. Knightsbridge/Sloane Square
The prestigious Knightsbridge area is a very popular area for luxury shopping in London. The luxury department store, Harrods, is located in this area where you can find all the luxury and designer goods that you may need on your shopping trip. Here, you can also explore the gourmet food hall for some Christmas themed treats and perhaps take a well-earned break at the Champagne and Oyster Bar. Sloane Square is another good choice when it comes to luxury shopping with a myriad of designer boutiques to explore if you are not in any way budget conscious!
3. Bayswater, Paddington & Notting Hill
This area is a very popular area of London and it would be a great base for your Christmas shopping trip. A bustling neighbourhood, this area features many shops, restaurants and pubs. The Whiteley Shopping Centre is to be found in this area and is London's very first department store. Portabello Road Market is also huge attraction in this area and attracts both tourists and Londoners, especially on weekends. If that is not enough, the more popular Oxford Street shopping district is but a short tube ride away.
