Shop Til You Drop in London

Whether you’re a designer diva, a high street fashionista, or a trendsetter who likes to track down the latest fashions almost before they happen, you won’t find a better place to feed your retail habit than London. There are lots of great flight and train travel deals available and with over fifty locations in the capital, a Travelodge hotel is a perfect place to stay on your London shopping spree. Many of them are based right in the centre of all the retail action, meaning it’s easy to nip back to your room to drop off your bags when the strain’s getting too much for your arms.

Oxford Street
Oxford Street is jam-packed with multiple branches of all your favourite chain stores like Zara, Gap and Next. It’s also flagship heaven, featuring the biggest and the best that Primark, John Lewis, Top Shop and M&S have to offer. And don’t miss the ultimate fashion lover’s department store, Selfridges. Shoe lovers will be blown away by the Shoe Lounge, the biggest footwear department in the world! And men don’t have to feel left out – Selfridges is also home to the planet’s largest men’s shoe department too. When you’ve had enough of the crowds, head up the little lane to St Christopher’s Place for a boutique atmosphere and lots of great places to eat, drink and rest your feet.

Covent Garden
If you like a carnival atmosphere as you shop, Covent Garden is the place to head to as there are always special events and street performances going on. Avoid the crowds at Covent Garden tube station by getting off at Leicester Square instead and browsing the shops on Long Acre on the short walk. The area’s famous Piazza has recently had a makeover and is now a make-up lover’s dream come true with dedicated Burberry, Chanel and Dior beauty boutiques. Wander off the main drag down side streets like Floral Street to find boutique heaven and Ted Baker’s fab flagship store.

The King’s Road
Home of the famous Sloane Ranger, the King’s Road has its fair share of eye-wateringly expensive labels but it’s also well kitted out with all your favourite high street stores and its smaller scale often makes for a more relaxed shopping experience than elsewhere in London.  As you come out of Sloane Square tube, you’ll see Peter Jones (aka John Lewis) right in front of you at the top of the road. When you’re finished in there, check out Kate Spade, just off the square for a taste of colourful, glamorous New York designer style. Don’t miss the spacious, calm King’s Walk shopping mall for skincare guru Liz Earle’s shop and spa, Patisserie Valerie and an absolutely enormous branch of Zara.

These are just some of London’s shopping hotspots. As you’ll find out when you visit the capital, when you’re in London, you’re never more than a hop, skip and a jump away from an amazing shop or ten!
