Shopping in London

Battle Oxford Street's crowds for high-street fashion at Top Shop, buy designer labels on Bond Street and pick up a smart tailored suit from Richard James on Savile Row. Find chic boutiques in peaceful Chelsea. Camden Passage is best for antiques on Wednesday, Saturday is saved for gourmet Borough Market, and up-and-coming designers sell new fashions in Spitalfields Market on Sunday. Most shops open Monday to Saturday 9.30am-6.30pm (until 8pm Thursday) and Sunday 11am-5pm.
