Whoever reads Vuela Viajes usually knows about my passion for London , a wonderful city in which I lived for almost a year and which has so much to offer that it was not enough time to discover it in its entirety. Among the many things you can do in the English capital, you should certainly not miss the opportunity to go shopping, whatever your budget.
As in any other city, in London you can buy all kinds of things and at different prices, either in luxury stores or in "normal" shops or markets. If you like shopping, you will undoubtedly be in the perfect city to unleash your passion.
There are many flea markets in London, and two of them are a must-see: Camden Town and Portobello Market . The first of them is held in Camden and is on Sundays, from very early until late afternoon. There you will find everything you can imagine, from musical instruments to clothing, accessories, jewelry, crafts … The one in Portobello is in the area of the same name, in Notting Hill. It is celebrated on Saturdays and you also find everything.
There are many department stores and shopping centers, and Harrods takes the cake. It is spectacular, the most luxurious department store I have ever been to. Just entering there is an incredible experience, and although as a general rule everything is very expensive, you will find some things at a good price to at least take a memory of having been there.
If what you like is visiting many shops while you stroll, Oxford Street is the best place for it. There you will find countless clothing stores, sports, music, toys … and even a spectacular jelly bean shop that will take your breath away. You can spend the whole day perfectly from store to store, there is even a spectacular Zara store, with several floors.
