Occupying 43 acres in White City, and covering nine different postcodes, Westfield London takes the crown for Europe’s largest shopping centre. The impressive location – on the site of the 1908 Olympics – cost around £1.6 billion to create and houses some 265 shops, from House of Fraser and Marks & Spencer to luxury fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton, Armani and Mulberry. Given the mall’s vast dimensions, it would be nice to be able to rock up in a pair of good walking shoes and some trackie bottoms but, be warned, the oversized-handbag-clutching clientele tend to be smartly decked out. If you find yourself in need of respite, Michelin-starred chefs Pascal Aussignac and Vincent Labeyrie can soothe away any shopping-induced stress with gastronomic creations at Croque Gascon, in the centre’s Eat Gallery. If they don’t manage to tempt your taste buds, then one of the other 50 restaurants and cafés surely will.
