The best Black Friday shops in London

Black Friday deals wait for no shopper! Start planning your bargain buys now – but only at the best shops in London, okay?

By Danielle Goldstein

Bargain hunters and anyone with access to even the most rudimentary of modern technology will probably know that Friday November 24 is Black Friday – that US import where retailers invite everyone to indulge in a mad scramble for discounted products. Every year there’s a load of tat on sale, often from iffy-looking websites youve never heard of. So where can you go to get some great deals from places you know and trust? The Time Out list of London’s best shops, of course.

We’ve pulled together those shops on the list that are doing the Black Friday thing, so you can begin plotting your shopping now. And of course you can go and join the pushing and shoving in the queues but if you want to purchase from the comfort of your pants, you can do so merely by clicking a button or two. Happy shopping.

The best shops in London for Black Friday deals

Celia Muñoz’s beautifully neat and bright children’s shop, full of exquisite clothes and accessories for ages 0-7. On Black Friday there’ll be a 25 percent discount on all items.

Best buy: Girl Mary Janes. Was £49, now £36.75Buy them here.

Foyles Charing Cross Road

It was a bit of a shock when this iconic bookshop moved but its new location is lightyears away from the dusty nooks and crannies of the old building, and a bold visual statement of Foyles’s ambition and new image. For Black Friday expect some very decent literary discounts.

Best buy: Signed exclusive Foyles edition of ‘The Sparsholt Affair’. Was £20, now £10. Buy it here.


Harvey Nichols

An iconic London shop with a worthy clutch of unique brands over its eight floors of beauty, fashion, food and home products. They’ll be offering 25 percent off fashion, accessories, sunglasses and shoes, plus ten percent off beauty products.

Best buy: Cecilie Copenhagen indigo cotton jacquard skirt. Was £70, now £42.50. Buy it here.

River Island

You can’t go wrong with this high street mainstay, offering contemporary fashion at pocket-friendly prices. And on Black Friday those prices will become even more pally, with up to 50 percent off a whole load of items.

Best buy: Tan warm lined lace-up boots. Was £50, now £30Buy them here.



Kickslove is the fully realised dream of committed sneakerhead Lisa Barlow-Weber (who earned her stripes at Size? and Nike). She had a clear aim: to set up a sneaker destination for like-minded girls to nerd out in. Mission accomplished. On Black Friday they’re offering between 50 and 70 percent on sale items as well as selected AW17 styles across all the brands. 

Best buy: F-13 by Fila trainers. Was £65, now £32.50Buy them here.

Topshop is nearish the top of Time Out’s 100 best shops list. While the chain itself has struggled to retain its retail crown with fashion usurpers such as Zara and Cos snapping at its heels, the Oxford Circus megabranch of toppers has no rival on the street, or anywhere else in London for that matter. There’ll be plenty of Black Friday discounts on November 24.

Best buy: Sequin cold shoulder crop top. Was £49, now £25. Buy it here.
