An image of shopping bags full of purchases Aside from the great food, history and culture you’ll encounter on your visit to London, another advantage of coming here to study on a corporate training course is the fantastic access you’ll have to the world’s finest shopping destinations. If spending is your thing to do during your downtime, then you’ll certainly be coming to the right place. Whether you’re after a bargain or want an experience you’re unlikely to get anywhere else, here are our top suggestions on where to go to splash the cash.

Regent Street

Offering everything from Primark to Barbour, Karl Lagerfeld and Tommy Hilfiger, this famous shopping street should be your first destination. Regardless of what your budget or tastes are, there is something for everyone here – including those who simply wish to wander up and down the street, indulging in a bit of window shopping. Don’t forget to stop by Hamleys before you leave to pick something up for the children!

Carnaby Street

Not too far from Regent Street is Carnaby Street, perhaps best associated with London’s swinging 60s scene. These days, its home to countless boutique clothing stores and is a real fashion hub. Having featured in countless films, music videos and even theatre productions, this is a great destination for anyone who wishes to mix up their shopping with a bit of 20th century British culture.

Camden Market

Head here for all things bohemian! If you want to pick up something a bit different and have a go at grabbing a bargain, get yourself down to Camden Market. The market itself actually refers to a series of markets scattered across Camden Town, meaning you should give yourself plenty of time to explore, while taking in the sights and sounds. While this part of the capital isn’t as ‘alternative’ as it used to be, there’s still plenty of surprises to uncover and is well worth a visit.

Harrods

The mother of all luxury department stores, you could spend days in Harrods and still not see everything. Located in the upmarket area of Knightsbridge, make sure you stop by the Food Hall and Egyptian Room when you come. One thing to remember is that you’ll have to bring everything you buy back home with you – so watch those baggage allowances!
