The last article on London spoke about Camden Town market. And if we do not go there exclusively for shopping, today I talk about some hotspots that worth a look: Covent Garden and Carnaby Street.
Covent Garden of London is just as Les Halles in Paris (1st district). This is an old market or rather old halls that have been rehabilitated to accommodate shops and restaurants. You can browse the shops on several floors and all under a canopy. Note that there is a craft market on Saturday morning.
Always like the Halles of Paris, there is a high concentration of shops around Covent Garden. There are many shopping streets with nice shops all around Convent Garden like this huge building for Urban Outfitter.

Another very nice hotspot, it’s Carnaby Street. What I like the most is the pedestrian street. But beyond that, there are of course some nice shops.

And I can not talk about shopping hotspots without remembering you that Oxford Street is definitely the ultimate shopping street in London. There are all the major brands: Primark (note: there are 2 at the ends of the street), H & M, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Zara, etc… And it’s sometimes surprising.
