Best 5 Shopping Malls in London
A lot of people definitely come to London to shop, but, as with many things in the increasingly quirky capital of the UK, biggest isn’t always best. If you’re looking for the top shopping malls in the metropolis, look no further than this list and don’t believe the hype.
- Westfield-OK, so the biggest one is the best. In all seriousness, it has to be seen from the inside to be believed. It’s like it’s own self-contained town in there, complete with a high-end designer store zone known simply as ‘The Village’.
- Brent Cross-This seemed colossal before the Westfield revolution, but that’s not the only reason this North London giant makes an appearance on this list. Other reasons include its vast parking lot and the pancakes in department store John Lewis’ The Place to Eat restaurant.
- Whiteleys-We finally take a drop in size, but not in quality. Whiteleys has always been elegant, with its fountains and twirling staircases, but it’s become even more sophisticated now that a variety of delicatessens and sepcialist food stalls run down the middle of the ground floor concord.
- The Whitgift in East Croydon has reached legendary proportions and is now happily celebrating its 40th anniversary celebrations. Go there to discover department stores and lesser known chains that you might not find so easily in more central areas of London.
- King’s Mall-Ah, I may still have a soft spot for this from my school days, but there’s something small but perfectly formed about this L-shaped shopping precinct. It’s ridiculously easy to find what you want and all the hot food outlets are in one place.
Woohoo! Monsoon and Accessorize Sample Sale!
You heard it here first! Friday 3rd December in Central London, right here. 8.30am-7.00pm. Entrance is a quid but it’s worth it for the bargains. But only if you get there early. I’ve been to one quite early and one really late-at the early one, I bought as much stuff as I could physically carry because it was all so good. When I was late, I was literally walking around the room looking for something I actually wanted to buy to justify my paying to get in. I’m not making that mistake again. See you there!
