I have spent many years trotting down Oxford streets with various shopping bags, giving my credit card a good workout. If I’m honest, I’m always in my elements when shopping anywhere in London. There no place like it.

Then you are in the right place as I will show you 4 places to shop in London that isn’t on the tour guide. These stores/malls are not normally mentioned on tour guide books, but personally, I often think they are the best place to shop.

Here is my list of 4 places to shop in London.

Borough/Greater London area malls

Shopping isn’t confined to just central London where the big stores are. You can hop on a train and explore the borough/greater London area. You will find even more choices to shops and also new places to discover. My recommendation would be to pick a spot outside of central London and go there instead.

Local Marketplace

Numbers of places do have their own local marketplace. More often on Weekend and seasonal holidays. Go visit a local marketplace and you might be surprised at what you find.

Jermyn Street

A place for men’s shopping, so this street includes a lot of tailoring independent stores. A 5 minutes’ walk and you can also stop off at Savile’s row.

Shopping Outlets

Throughout central London and in the wider area, you will find shopping outlets. Often at these places, you will find designers fashion for a cheaper price. I think they quite fun to walk around and to spot that particular bargains.


That was my list of 4 places to shop in London that won’t be in guidebooks. Do you have any to add? I hope it has been helpful and happy shopping.
