The 100 best shops in London

Going shopping in London? Plan your shopping spree with our round-up of the city’s finest retailers, from cheap vintage clothing shops to world famous department stores

Shopping in London is the best. This city might be hectic, noisy and all-too-often grimy, but, incredibly creative, it’s also a place where independent businesses can thrive. However, with street upon street rammed full of great stores, knowing where to begin can be a struggle. Happily, Time Out’s savviest spenders love to pound the pavement and have managed to argue the list of thousands down to the very best 100 shops in London. From the best department stores to dinky boutiques, beautiful homeware stores and directional fashion shops, there’s something for every shopper – no matter how deep your pockets. So go forth Londoners – shop until your feet bleed and your purse is screaming for mercy.

The 100 best shops in London: Lifestyle

The Conran Shop - Marylebone

Best for: Haute homewares

Modernist pioneer Terence Conran has always had an impressively sharp eye for the decorative, and nowhere is this more evident than at his Fulham Road flagship store. The Conran Shop presents a knowledgeable edit of investment pieces like Jacobsen and Eames chairs alongside an unusual and beautiful collection of decorative wares from international designers.

Marylebone

Cycle Lab and Juice Bar

Best for: Reliably good bike repairs

Cycle snobbery is rife in bike retailers across the capital, but that’s not the case at Cycle Lab and Juice Bar. As its name would suggest, the Pitfield Street premises combines a shop with a repair centre and café. Along with nerd-pleasing brands like Ritte and Argon, expect eccentric accessories and solid road bikes for novices. True aficionados will happily while away the hours watching the experts at play in the workshop – repairs start at the £30 mark.

Daunt Books - Marylebone

Best for: A vast array of travel tomes

One of London’s most charming bookshops, Daunt’s Marylebone flagship is pretty as a picture. The Edwardian building is literally packed to the rafters with books. From the vaulted ceiling to the William Morris accent walls and stained-glass window, the store’s fixtures and fittings are pleasingly old-fashioned. Particularly worthy of a browse is the vast travel section: ordered by country, it’s enough to induce wanderlust in the most homely of homebodies.

Marylebone

Floris

Best for: Old-style perfume

Enterprising young Spaniard Juan Floris set up his St James’s perfumery in 1730, and one imagines not too much has changed since then. Glorious scents are placed behind glass cabinets and oak panelled counters, lending the feel of an old-fashioned apothecary. The two-hour fragrance customisation sessions are the stuff of perfectly perfumed dreams: the end result is a 100ml vial of your own bespoke eau de parfum.

Foyles Charing Cross Road

Best for: A vast range of books and great service

News that Foyles was moving up the road to flash new premises was greeted with dismay by legions of bibliophiles. But with eight levels packed with more than 200,000 books, a capacious art space and a floor dedicated to events, it’s hard to fault this glossy, well-lit store. In the age of the e-reader, it’s a gutsy statement in favour of ink and paper.

Gill Wing

Best for: Envy-inducing cookwear

For anyone in a normal-sized (i.e. tiny) London flat, Gill Wing Cook Shop is a nightmare. Within seconds of entering you're convinced that you have space for six cast-iron ramekins and a new, state-of-the-art lemon juicer. It stocks the staples as well as the frivolous – on days when even Amazon Prime can't save your dinner party crisis, Gill Wing is there to provide an extra pair of wine glasses or those crucial fondue forks. It's a cave of kitchen wonders.

Barnsbury

Honeyjam

Best for: Nostalgic toys

This independent toy shop in Notting Hill is a veritable treasure trove. Owners Jasmine Guinness and Honey Bowdrey have seven children between them, so have experienced more than their fair share of playtimes. The carefully picked stock has a vintage slant, from pirate ships to old-fashioned dolls, but there are plenty of pocket-money delights and party-bag goodies too. Look out for the made-to-order toy Aga – this is Notting Hill, after all.

Ladbroke Grove

House of Hackney

Best for: Future classics for your home

Britishness runs through every stitch and paintbrush swirl at House of Hackney’s flagship. The store flicks two fingers at minimalism; it’s decked out in the deliberately over-the-top juxtapositions of print-on-print-on-print that have made the brand’s name. From the dusky gothic Dalston Rose to the heady '70s Palmeral, all of HoH’s beautiful prints are here, on everything from armchairs to oven gloves. Look out for the collaboration with the estate of their aesthetic forefather and fellow East Londoner, William Morris.

Isambard’s Cycles

Best for: Beautiful bikes

After three years in its dinky premises on Bethnal Green Road, this independent bike store can now stretch out its spokes. Round the corner on Brick Lane, its new location is a beautiful space. With bits of bike hanging from the ceiling and plenty of plants around, you feel like you’re in a cycling nut’s living room rather than a shop. Though it does sell a few off-the-peg bikes, it’s the custom builds that make is such a special spot. And if you already own your dream wheels, it also offers repairs and servicing.

Shoreditch

JJ Fox

Best for: Posh smokes

If you’ve got money to burn in every possible sense, there’s no better place to do so than Mayfair’s JJ Fox. Of all London’s cigar shops, this is the grandest and most storied: past patrons include Winston Churchill and Oscar Wilde (who died owing money here). From Cuban Bolivar Belicosos to Dominican Ashtons, only the finest brands (with unimpeachable provenance) are stocked. One for the seriously discerning (and seriously monied) smoker.

Borough Wines

Best for: Little-known vineyards

Starting life as a stall in the drool-inducing Borough market, this independent wine shop is testament to London’s boozy ways, having grown to seven full-on shops in the capital in the space of 15 years. In the same vein this postbox-sized outpost of the brilliant wine shop carries an excellent edit of plonk from smaller producers and family firms, plus refillable glass bottles – it’s also very handily situated on the 38 bus route.

Islington

Clapton Craft

Best for: Niche craft beer

‘Bottle shop'? Is that not just a fancy new term for an off-licence? Well, step through the door of this dedicated beer shop and you'll be forced to admit that 'off-licence' doesn't quite cut it. As well as an enormous selection of bottles and cans of beer from London, the UK and beyond there are eight taps dispensing draught beer to take away in bottles – the biggest selection in the city. Which could be overwhelming, but the staff are always there to guide you through it. Quite simply the best place to buy beer for miles.

RECOMMENDED: Find a bottle shop in your area

Hackney

Hop Burns & Black

Best for: Niche local brews

Hop Burns & Black on East Dulwich Road sells three things: beer, hot sauce and vinyl, with the former available to carry out in one-litre flagons (what similar operations call a ‘growler’, inevitably with a bit of puerile nudge-winkery). Thanks to a nifty counter-pressure filling machine, the grog stays fresh for weeks – although with breweries on offer including London’s finest, US legends and Kiwi trailblazers like Yeastie Boys, you’ll do well not to see it off in a single sitting.

Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

Best for: Treats for big kids of all ages

Purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind, this little curiosity shop is just the ticket for vampires, werewolves and humans on the prowl for a box of Cubed Earwax (fudge – £5) or a pot of Tinned Fear (boiled sweets – £8) containing short stories by the likes of David Nicholls, Nick Hornby and Zadie Smith. Proceeds support the Ministry of Stories – an initiative that sees professional writers mentor young people in the art of story writing.

Hoxton

Milroy's of Soho

Best for: Rare whiskies

There’s an Old World charm to London’s oldest whisky shop, and the small, low-lit space is lined with enough bottles of the glorious amber stuff to make you feel a bit sozzled just by entering. There are fabulously rare and fiendishly expensive bottles, but there's also a big selection of more affordable options, perfect for a posh, boozy gift. Somehow they've squeezed a couple of bars in – one in the main shop that functions during opening hours and one swish, speakeasy-styled basement bar, Vault, serving cocktails in the evenings.

Neal's Yard Dairy

Best for: Top quality cheese

If Neal’s Yard Dairy hadn’t existed, you might never have heard the term ‘artisanal British cheese.’ It began championing small cheesemakers when the shop opened in 1979, and has been central to creating a huge community of high-quality cheesemakers in Britain and Ireland. Like Monmouth Coffee, NYD has larger branches in Borough and Bermondsey, but this tiny, fragrant nook wins hands-down on character. When they offer taste after taste, don’t say no!

Phoenicia

Best for: An excellent array of Mediterranean delicacies

We took a Very Famous Cookery Writer to visit Phoenicia. Afterwards they said: ‘I usually go to the Middle Eastern supermarkets in Edgware Road, but this is just as good.’ It isn’t size but quality that matters, and a comprehensive range from nuts and olives to fresh produce and meat (order a whole sheep, if you need one). All the quality is high except for the huge range of baklava. There the quality is off the scale.

Kentish Town

Salvino

Best for: Italian delicacies

Salvino is the best Italian deli in its area by far, and in north-west London only Giacobazzi’s (NW3) can compete. Expect great quality at reasonable prices, with the tiny cheese/salume/antipasti display star of the show. Inexpensive olive oils are of fine quality, homemade fresh sausages exemplary. And the staff are characters, always eager to persuade you to buy an extra cheese or tub of olives – in the nicest possible way, of course.

Kentish Town

Uto Beer

Best for: Specialist beer

Doesn’t matter if you don’t get this specialist booze shop’s pun-tastic name (as in ‘Utopia’) – you’ll definitely appreciate their impeccably chosen range of craft IPAs, specialist lagers, funky porters, trappist brews and basically any beverage that’s ever been within a mile of a hop. Their Borough Market stall’s been promoting tasteful brews since before the UK craft beer revolution was even a thing (1999, fact fans) and their 700-strong selection makes them the capital’s most comprehensive beer stockist.

Design Museum Shop

Best for: Design-conscious souvenirs, gifts and gadgets

‘Oh god, my light bulbs aren’t stylish enough!’ Don’t worry, that’s normal. Everyone has that reaction after visiting the Design Museum Shop. This isn’t a bog standard museum add-on to try to coax you out of an extra few quid. As well as stocking souvenirs from the current exhibition, the Design Museum Shop carries all sorts of ingenious gadgets and sleek homeware from top designers, including foldable plug adapters, the award-winning ‘Plumen’ light bulb and something called a ‘Juicy Salif’ (Google it).

Fee Fee La Fou HQ

Recommended

Best for: Unique yet affordable gifts

If a ringmaster retired in order to fulfil a lifelong ambition of owning a gift shop, he’d probably open somewhere a lot like Fee Fee La Fou HQ. Part gallery, part shop, almost everything on display here is available to buy, from the artfully mismatched wallpaper down to the eccentric poodle lamps. Packed full of everything you could possibly want and nothing that you strictly need it’s the perfect place to pick up presents, or to escape from grey London for a bit.

Fortnum & Mason

Best for: Luxe foodie hampers

With its stylish eau de nil and copper-clad façade, ultra-opulent interiors and numerous royal warrants, Fortnum’s makes a serious play for the title of world’s poshest department store. No trip to 181 Piccadilly is complete without meandering through the fragrant food halls, where you can fill luxury hampers with delicacies beyond a gastronome’s wildest dreams. After a revamp earlier this year, the second-floor beauty emporium stocks exclusives from a clutch of niche fragrance brands, and is home to a Bamford Haybarn spa.

The Goodhood Store

Best for: Streetwear with a sense of humour

After seven years of quiet success, game-changing concept shop The Goodhood Store super-sized to a brand new Curtain Road premises in summer 2014. Spread over two floors, the interior boasts little exhibition spaces, a basement café and a gnarly log cabin. The upscale, leftfield stock is hand-picked for Goodhood’s very East End customers, from hand-carved skateboards to to cheap-as-chips mugs, badges and stickers. A very good ‘hood, indeed.

The Hackney Shop

Best for: Discounted designer wonders

Each week, this unassuming Hackney premises hosts a local designer and his or her fashionable wares, completely rent-free. Once the seven days are up, another young brand moves in. Considering that Hackney is a London fashion hotspot, home to the likes of Jonathan Saunders, House of Holland and Roksanda, you’re likely to find incredible catwalk clothes on the rails at heavily discounted rates – or you might chance upon an amazing local newbie given retail floorspace for the first time.

Harrods

Best for: Extravagant style under one roof

Yes, it’s unashamedly ostentatious, but Harrods is a spectacular shop and a London institution. Once you’ve dodged the tourists taking selfies outside, the elegantly tiled food halls on the ground floor are heaven for foodies, while the beauty halls boast a wealth of luxury exclusives. Other highlights include the gargantuan Shoe Heaven and fragrant Salon de Parfums showcase. Little ones can be kept occupied for hours in the Toy Kingdom, which sells everything from posh dressing-up gear to mini Mercedes G-Wagons for the aspirational tot.

A one-stop shop for everything luxury, it’s especially strong when it comes to fashion and beauty. Managing to avoid being fusty, its menswear space has a super cool barbershop and rotating pop-up space while its graceful beauty floor is full of new and innovative products.

Liberty

Best for: Eccentric English style and classic floral prints

There is no more gorgeous a shop in London – possibly the world – than Liberty. With its eccentric best-of-British jumble of haberdashery fabrics, brilliant homewares and vintage jewels, wandering through the wood-panelled rooms is a little like exploring a stately home – albeit one that’s home to a lovingly curated selection of cutting-edge international fashion and beauty brands.

Selfridges

Best for: EVERYTHING

Selfridges was never intended to be just a store – the emphasis was always on the experience of shopping – but we doubt that even the visionary Mr Harry Selfridge could have foreseen a talking water fountain in the foodhall. The sheer scale of the operation means that it can accommodate a breadth of brands that span all price points – from Primark to Prada, it’s all here. Selfridges doesn’t measure itself against other department stores, it only competes with its own past successes, and this attitude ensures that it remains ahead of the curve.

Laughing in the face of rainbow rubbers and giant pencils, the Tate Modern’s gift shop is full of lovely things that you would actually want: David Shrigley dominoes and Guerrilla Girls tea towels. Plus, from the Yinka Shinobare crockery and Grayson Perry’s silk scarves and jigsaws, to its ongoing collaboration with Ally Capellino, a good chunk of its stock is exclusive. Artfully positioned at the museum’s entrance you don’t even need to pretend to be interested in the art to shop there.

Best for: The most beautiful fashion on the high street

Since its launch in 2013 & Other Stories has been, without a doubt, one of the best places to shop on the high street. Its elegant, fashion-forward stock is refreshed regularly, there are frequent collaborations with interesting creatives, like Shoplifter – a NYC-based visual artist – and their pricing is fair. Spacious and airy, Its Oxford Street branch is as lovely as the original – with three floors of ready-to-wear (including collabs), beauty, jewellery, accessories, bags and shoes, plus the covetable beauty and cosmetics range he only issue you’ll find in this shop is wanting to leave with everything.

Alexander McQueen

Best for: Theatrical designer womenswear

The late, great showman of London’s fashion scene, Alexander McQueen’s Bond Street shop has an appropriately theatrical feel. The baroque panelling, expanses of marble and gilded mirrors remind you that this is indeed a very posh shop. But as with all things McQueen, the devil is very much is the detail. Chairs and tables are rounded off with claws and hooves, while gargoyles grimace in amongst the fauna of the moulded plaster panels.

Under the corrugated metal roof (like a hipster Anderson shelter), you’ll find a careful edit of understated styles from brands like YMC, Edwin and Nixon. Tucked round the corner is the beautifully arranged shoe room, stocking an impressive array of trainers that’s almost too pretty to shop from. Almost.

Home to a mind-boggling 1,000 pairs of vintage shoes, the basement is well worth a careful rummage: the knowledgeable staff will help you pinpoint the perfect decade.

Best for: Beautifully curated designer fashion

It was already one of our capital’s favourite fashion boutiques – with the founder Mrs Burnstein being one of first to support Alexander McQueen and Christopher – but following its acquisition by Farfetch it has been reinvigorated. Serious investment has given it a much bigger buying team and a CEO who cut her teeth under Natalie Massenet at Net-a-Porter. With 70 new brands in stock since last year the new team has been bloody busy – worth it though when they have a rollcall that includes Vetements, Simone Rocha and Marques Almeida.

Truly consumer first, it’s Regent Street flagship store is an all-mod-conned ‘brand experience’ complete with interactive magic mirrors, a 38 square-metre video display unit and even digital rain showers.

The best shop in London is in Chiswick w4 the cancer research uk charity shop. This is the one at the quieter end (there are two) which does vintage and designer labels. The manageress is a lot of fun and really knows her stuff. It's more of an experience than a shop. I got Jimmy choos in there for a snap!

Definitely the best shop I have visited in London is RACHEL VOSPER CANDLES. Hand made candles right in Belgravia, poured by Rachel herself. A truly unique experience in a beautiful mews moments from the chaos ofKnightsbridge. They offer candle making courses as well. But the absolute best thing is the BESPOKE service they offer, filling any vessel you bring them with a fragrance of your choice. AND its next door to a pub- should keep everyone happy! Address is : 69 Kinnerton Street SW1X

I've never been to London before, but it is my dream to go there. Most people don't want to go cause of the weather. But it seems like a very nice place. It's historical. And very educational. The stores seem very unique and interesting. I hope to go to London and go shopping one day. Since I live all the way in the United States.
