Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.Where is the new centre of London's fashion industry? Where are the funkiest retro shops? Which streets are best if you want to escape from the chain stores? What's the best way to experience the retail of madness of Oxford Street? What's happening to London's traditional tailors and gentleman's outfitters that you should know about?The mp3cityguides guide to shopping in London is a new and easy to use guide to London's shops. We start in Notting Hill by telling you how best to explore the market and where to find antiques, food and second hand clothes.We then tell you the history of the King's Road from Mary Quant's Bazaar to the arrival of the Sex Pistols and point out where you can still find interesting shops amongst the chains. Knightsbridge might be choked with traffic but the mp3cityguides' London Shopping Guide will show you where you can window shop in peace. We then move onto the West End and pick out the best individual shops. Savile Row is changing with traditional tailors becoming more open to new customers and funky new tailors opening shops on the Row. We'll also show you where you can get the best shirts in Jermyn Street. The market and the Piazza are what most people think of if you say Covent Garden but the best places to shop in Covent Garden are not the most well known. The shops in Neal Street and Seven Dials offer cutting edge design and are great if you're looking for labels, clothes and accessories that are out of the ordinary. Bermondsey and the area around the Oxo Tower are also great places to find interesting and exciting new designers and retailers - we'll tell you which ones to look out for and show you where they are with our unique edit-it-yourself pdf London shopping guide.
