GO Shopping in West London

Shopping in West London From high fashion to the latest bargains, there’s a range of shops to suit all pockets and tastes.

Head to Regent Street [map] for a range of flagship stores including Berketex and Nikeworld or take the kids to the world-famous Hamley’s Toy Store, which has seven floors of goodies for the young and young at heart.

Home to the most elegant and expensive shops in London Bond Street [map] is heaven to many keen shoppers. This is where you’ll find designer clothing such as Gucci and Versace, perfume, art and antiques, and more Royal Warrant holders (suppliers to the royal family) than anywhere else in London. New Bond Street is a few minutes walk from Bond Street Station, connected by pedestrian-only South Molton Street, and Old Bond Street is the short section at the southern end that joins Piccadilly.

Notting Hill is where you’ll find unusual gifts. Choose from ethnic food halls, antique warehouses, or bookshops that inspired a blockbusting British film.

If you’re hoping to bag a bargain try one of West London’s renowned markets.

Portobello Market [map], Portobello Road and Portobello Green, is the perfect place to pick up some unique jewellery or vintage and retro clothing.

The market is open Fridays and Saturdays, although some stalls remain there throughout the week.

Alternatively, head to Shepherd’s Bush [map] for its historic market that has been at the same place – Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road – since 1914. Owing much to its African and Irish communities this is the ideal place to try some new culinary treats and choose from a selection of exotic fish, meats and fresh and organic fruit and vegetables.

There are also some excellent music stalls here offering everything from Irish folk to reggae and everything in between.
