Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We might be biased, but we think London is pretty ace for shopping. Fashion hunters travel from all over the world to buy threads in our capital, but it’s not just designers that are causing a stir – shopping in London’s vintage stores is a way of tapping into trends from across the ages in one of the world’s most fashionable cities.
Plus, there’s plenty of reasons to favour second-hand clothes to new garbs. They’re more affordable, more eco-friendly AND you’re less likely to rock up to a party wearing the same frock as someone else. The downside? It can take a little more time to rummage through the rails – but we’ve helped with that by pulling together the best vintage and retro shops from across London. From carefully curated boutiques to piles of vintage denim waiting to be plundered, here are the best vintage shops in London.
