You know how much I love London. It’s one of my favourite places in the world. It’s not just full of history and culture, it’s also a great place to shop till you drop. With its famous shopping miles it’s popular with Brits and tourists alike and that’s not all that London has to offer for fashionistas and shopping fans.
The London Designer Outlet, a seven-storey shopping paradise just a stone throw away from Wembley Stadium houses 50 shops, 20 restaurants & coffee shops and offers the best of designer clothing in the UK. From fashion and lifestyle through to gadgets and gifts, you’ll find some of the best deals from top high street retailers and a 9 screen cinema and play park will keep husbands, dads and kids entertained while you shop for the latest trends and bargains or recharge your empty batteries over peaceful lunch in one of the outlets’ restaurants.
For some reason, I had never heard of the London Designer Outlet before, probably because I’ve got two big outlet centres reasonably close to me, but I would love to go for a girly trip with my sister. We’d leave Bristol on a Friday morning, arrive in London for lunch and then start the big city adventure. We’re both massive history fans, so there’d be sightseeing galore all weekend, lovely food in Soho and maybe a West End musical to make the weekend an extra special treat. Sunday however would be reserved for a massive shopping trip and the London Designer Outlet actually sounds like the perfect place to go.
It has all the brands you find on the high street under one roof, which is super handy because you don’t have to squeeze through masses of tourists on Oxford Street and can completely ignore the weather. I know this sounds like a stupid argument, but have you ever tried holding up an umbrella with half a dozen of shopping bags hanging from your arms? Believe me, it’s not much fun, so whenever I can I head for places that allow me to shop for everything I need in just one place. They also offer free parking when you spend £30 in store, plus there’s a Prezzo! What’s not to like?
Which shop would you pop into first?
