  • Harrods

    London Shopping

    Travelling with women, three "monuments" are mandatory in London - Oxford street, Marks and Spencer and Harrods. I visited all of them (of course!) but my favorite is this one - beautiful, with nice collections, but... expensive, shortenning the time (and cost) of the visit. Very good, indeed!

    Primark is impossible to miss. It's the most prominent shop in Piccadilly Gardens, and has a massive sign proclaiming its presence on the side of the building. A weekday trip into this shop will reveal the Mancunian masses. Don't even bother trying to shop here on the weekends unless you like a challenge. Here is where you'll see a lot of scallies...

    If you have kids you have to visit Hamleys. That's not just an encouragement, you may literally have no choice. As the world's biggest toy store it's a magnet for children. It's also a potentially harrowing and costly experience for parents, but that comes with the territory, right? When I took my two year old son there, as a reward for being so...

    Oxford Shopping

    This is where I head when I'm looking for that hard-to-find recording that nowhere else seems to have. I have to say that Blackwell's Music Shop is simply not what it used to be (is anything?). The shift from vinyl records to CDs has done it no favours. The premises are much reduced in size from what they were 25 years ago, it feels cramped where...

Market days start gradually from around 5.30am...

  • Covent Garden / Jubilee Market

    London Shopping

    Possibly my favourite non-food shop in the whole of London is the shop at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. Few things symbolise London as vividly than the London Transport (LT) system, with its iconic logos, posters and maps. Whenever I think of LT, the catch phrase 'Mind the Gap' comes to mind (based on an automated announcement...

    All the local libraries in Britain have a few shelves where they sell books that are no longer required. All types of books are available and i do not know the reason why such good books are no longer required. I picked up a guide book for South America for 20 pence which is about the average price for unwanted books.

    While Harrods is often mentioned by tourists as the department store they most want to visit, I personally would recommend a trip to Selfridges above that any day. It is equally huge, almost as grand-looking, but far more practical in my view, as despite its apparent grandness it actually caters for most budgets. And while you won’t come away with...

    This is a small shop in the Camden Stables market, tucked away in a back corridor. The walls are painted red, the better to show off the sculptures.

The walls and ceiling are covered in plaques,...
