GO Shopping in North London

Shopping in North London Shopping comes in a variety of types, there’s food shopping, bargain hunting, clothes shopping, window shopping…. and in north London you can indulge in all these and more.

If you’re serious about shopping in north London then head to Islington for everything from market stall bargains to exclusive high fashion boutiques.

Just round the corner from Angel tube station is N1 Islington [map], a shopping centre which features the likes of Sephora, Size? and Mambo alongside high street stalwarts such as Gap and Next. The complex is also home to bars, eateries and a cinema so if you spend your taxi fare on shoes you’ll still have plenty to keep you entertained before the last bus leaves.

Those who prefer fresh air and a little banter while they relieve themselves of cash should make their way to Camden Passage [map]. Although the name suggests that it’s in north west London’s eclectic Camden area, it is actually in Islington and has been for more than four decades.

Camden Passage is renowned for its antiques and over the years the area has become home to around 350 traders selling a wide variety of items including porcelain, prints and clocks. However there are also places to buy jewellery such as Leolinda, fashions from yester-year at Cloud Cuckoo Land and Annie’s vintage clothes and at the nearby Rockarchive Gallery you can start your collection of digital prints.

For a more conventional market experience you could try the vibrant Chapel Market [map] close to Angel tube station. Expect to find fresh fish and vegetables, African foods, clothing and plants on the stalls, as well as some bargains in the stores and junk shops nearby. The market is open Tuesday – Sunday from 9:00am.

Over in Wood Green (N22) you’ll find Shopping City, a shopping centre featuring over 100 speciality stores. The complex also plays host to a 12-screen cinema, boutique stores and a 60-stall market.

North London is also a celebrity hangout, so as you take to the shops of Broadway in Muswell Hill and Crouch End looking for Indian cushion covers in Indish [map] keep an eye for stars from the small screen!

And if you’re feeling adventurous, you could make your way to Stroud Green near Crouch End where you’ll find Roxanne (on Stroud Green Road), a store which sells French Connection and Nicole Farhi seconds. Or you could venture to Tottenham where amongst the Caribbean clothes stores you’ll find Krypton Comics one of the best comic shops in the area.
