With Christmas lights starting to be switched on in towns and cities across the country it is probably time we started thinking about Christmas and in particular our Christmas shopping as we approach the start of December.
As Christmas is a time for giving, the team here at Parkers have put together our recommendations of the best places to go Christmas shopping in London.
Oxford & Regent Street
These two famous London streets are a haven for shoppers all year round, but during the winter months, they are lit up with spectacular Christmas lights.
You will find a wide variety of different shops to suit all budgets and tastes, with department stores as well as independent designers and other shops available.
Plus you can slip into one of the side streets to escape the crowds and enjoy something to eat and drink.
Knightsbridge is the ideal area to enjoy some luxury London Christmas shopping. Here you’ll find many of the most exclusive designer brands in the world.
Harrods is transformed into a magical world during Christmas time and is lit up by more than 12,000 lightbulbs.
Explore the store’s giant Christmas shop, filled with luxury decorations, posh crackers and ornaments from top designers. You can also hunt for presents for family and friends in the 300-plus departments on the other floors.
Westfield Shopping Centre
The Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford is the largest shopping and leisure destination in Europe, making it the perfect place for your Christmas shopping.
With 1,905,542 square feet of shop floor and more than 350 shops and restaurants, you’ll struggle not to spend your savings here.
The mall primarily houses big-name brands that range from Primark to H&M, Zara, Adidas, Apple and even luxury brands such as Breitling and Mulberry.
Thinking of making a day of it?
If you are planning a day out Christmas shopping then let Parkers take the hassle out of your journey. We can get you to and from your destination in comfort or you can hire one of our drivers for the whole day meaning you can stop for off for lunch or afternoon tea without the worry of getting home.
