Any lover of London will know that there is a diverse mix of shops to cover during a visit to the city, so at SalesGossip we’ve designed a series of 6 London Shopping Walks to help you find your favourite shops and discover some new ones too. Each location has its own unique vibe – but what they all share is being home to the best of British design, from top designers as well as high street stores.
Easy-to-follow maps show you the route from shop to shop and when you’ve got your hands full with bags packed with bargains, we’ll even recommend where to stop for a spot of afternoon tea.
