London - a world class shopping city!
Calling all fashionista’s and shopaholics alike, London offers some of the world’s best collection of shops all at your doorstep when you stay with us at Sheriff Hotel.
Here are our top picks:
Main Shopping Streets
- Oxford Street: In the heart of London with more than 300 shops, designer outlets and landmark or flagship stores. This has got to be your number 1 destination for shopping in London with everything from Primark to grab a bargain, Topshop for the latest fashion trends and Bond Street for the more upmarket shops
- Regent street: Running perpendicular to Oxford Street intersecting at Oxford Circus here you’ll find the world famous Hamley’s Toy Store, a flagship Apple store, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren and J Crew shops
- Bond Street and Mayfair: Just off Oxford Street you’ll find Bond Street leading towards Piccadilly and Mayfair. This is what we’d call extravagant retail therapy or preparing to pop the question with the flagship Tiffany store and other famous jewellers like Cartier. The majority of people here are however just window shopping!
- Carnaby Street: Just off Regent Street (its quite handy that all the major shopping streets are all so near) this street hosts over 150 brands and independent boutiques as well as restaurants and bars
- King’s Road: In case you thought that all the shops were at Oxford Street here’s another area to explore in Chelsea and only a 15 minute walk from our hotel. An eclectic mix of high street fashion, chic boutiques and independents as well as designer shops. Check out Duke of York Square with over 30 shops and cafés and there is often a market at weekends. If you’re into antiques Chelsea Antique’s Market is also house here
