Modern shopping in traditional London

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

Regent Street is located between trendy SoHo and upmarket Mayfair, which kind of makes it middle of the road.

That’s only as far as prices go, however. Regent Street is the perfect location for some serious and up to the minute shopping without having to pay through the nose for it.

Regent Street is the place to find popular stores such as Burberry, Guess, Banana Republic and BOSE, as well as a plethora of restaurants, cafes and pubs so you can find the perfect place to relax if the shopping becomes just a little exhausting.

The aesthetic appeal of Regent Street is all down to the fact that local law demands that it retains a uniform appearance that lends a sense of history to the area. This means that you can do your up to the minute shopping while feeling that you have stepped back in time and experiencing the London of another era.
