With the dear old British Pound dropping like a stone against other currencies, there has seldom been a better time to come and get value for your Dollars, Euros, and Yen etc, in London’s shops.
Here at Mikro Tours we provide sight-seeing tours of London for independently-minded visitors in both small and larger groups. And, alongside these tours we are forever being asked where are the best places to shop.
Many of you would have heard about the splendours to be found in London’s most famous department store- Harrods, in Knightsbridge.
But London boasts several other notable department stores, not least Harrods’ Knightsbridge neighbour, Harvey Nichols, a favourite of the late Princess Diana.
Whilst back on Oxford Street, you can spend hours of fun wandering through the Edwardian splendour of Selfridges, founded by American, Gordon Selfridge just over a century ago.
And bordering Oxford Street is to be found the famous boutiques and shops of Bond Street- London’s equivalent of Rodeo Drive, where the designer names jostle for attention, from Chanel to Armani, and jewellers like Tiffany sparkle.
So if you are looking to add to what Santa might bring you this Christmas, London offers you an affordable option.
Until next time,
Michael Gerrard, Mikro Tours
