London is one of the top destinations for shopping. Contrary to what you might think, there is an infinite number of non-expensive clothes and electronic shops in central London.
London offers a variety of department stores, street markets, vintage shops and high-end boutiques, which will satisfy all tastes and budgets.
Some of the most cherished objects from London are the typical souvenirs, such as bags, t-shirts, miniature versions of red telephone booths, double-decker buses or black cabs. You can never go wrong with these types of souvenirs.
For those who are planning to renew their wardrobe, you have a wide range of options for all different types of tastes in clothes and accessories, from more classical cuts, to authentic vintage outfits.
English tea is a highly sought-after product when visiting London. The most popular types of tea include Earl Grey, with a slight citric taste, Darjeeling tea, Black tea with a floral aroma, Assam tea, strong black tea, and the famous English Breakfast tea (combination of Assam and Ceylon tea).
Although there are an infinite number of shops in London that sell tea, we recommend the same shop where Queen Elizabeth buys her tea; Fortnum & Mason. This is the largest tea shop in the city. It opened in 1707 and it offers over 60 kinds of tea. You will find it on Piccadilly.
