“When I visit London one of my favourite things to do is shopping! I really enjoy hunting around for interesting things in the sales, buying something new to wear out on a Saturday night. Or a bit of window-shopping – it doesn’t cost a penny. Sometimes I’ll spend hours just walking around a market having a chat with my friends.
There are lots of different places to go shopping in London. If you’re looking for ‘high street’ shops – the kind of shops you will find in most towns, you can go to Oxford Street, but it gets too busy sometimes; it can be difficult to get anywhere! For a less crowded, more relaxing shopping experience, go to Covent Garden – you can have an expensive cappuccino, and watch some (free) street theatre at the same time.
Some people like shopping in department stores. The most famous one in London is ‘Harrods’ in Knightsbridge, but for me, it’s not modern enough, and too expensive, the sort of place your parents do their shopping. The best of all the big department stores is ‘Selfridges’ in Oxford Street, it’s a shoppers’ paradise, nice clothes but very high prices. Well I can look, can’t I?
For the ‘day out walking around a market’ experience, try ‘Camden’. It’s exciting, fashionable, and there are lots of lovely things at attractive prices! You can buy cheap jeans and cool second hand clothes in the morning and then get a tattoo and a body piercing later on! If all that shopping is too tiring, you can get some Chinese or Thai food for ‡2 or 3, sit by the canal and relax. What could be better?
If you think you need to experience more of London’s ‘culture’, you might prefer a trip to Greenwich. This is a much more relaxing day out. You can have a walk round the market and shops, and then take in a bit of London’s history – it was the birthplace of Henry VIII, Queen Mary and Elizabeth I. There’s also the park, the ‘Cutty Sark’ (an old ship that was used for transporting tea), and the old observatory ... so much to do, but don’t forget the shopping!”
