What are the popular shops in London(UK)?

If you are going to visit the UK for the first time, you might be wondering what the main shops or departmental stores are. Here's a quick guide:

  • John Lewis
  • Harvey Nichols
  • Fenwick
  • Barker's
  • Selfridges
  • Harrods
  • Peter Jones

High/Mid-Range (but excellent quality)
  • Debenhams
  • House of Fraser
  • Marks and Spencer

  • Primark
  • TK Maxx
  • TJ Hughes
  • BHS

Stylish and Trendy
  • River Island
  • Zara
  • Mango
  • New Look
  • French Connection
  • Oasis
  • Top Shop/Top Man
  • Morgan
  • Jane Norman
  • Monsoon

Great cosmetics , essentials and OTC drugs
  • Superdrug
  • Boots
There are lots of other excellent stores to explore, but this is just a snapshot of the most popular. Caveat: the terms 'high end' and 'mid-range' could be considered subjective. They are used here in relative terms, or how they are generally considered in the UK. In other words, what is considered 'mid-range' in London could be considered in 'high-end' or even 'budget' in another city.
