Best of the year 2010: London shops
Time Out’s Shopping
Liberty won our Best Shop award in September and has had an excellent year, with exclusive ranges, clever events, guest appearances and workshops. Wandering the wood-panelled galleries makes for an oddly intimate shopping experience, like it's a creaky National Trust property – albeit with the most glamorous gift shop stock ever.
Liberty, Great Marlborough St, W1B 5AH (7734 1234/www.liberty.co.uk). Oxford Circus tube. 10am-9pm Mon-Sat; noon-6pm Sun.
