Specialty shops Shopping

Maison Assouline

Bookworms and mere magazine skimmers alike will enjoy a trip to this publishing house on Piccadilly.


A little Marc Jacobs for you to get even the least bookish turning pages. Great books and gift items.

Labour & Wait

Kit your kitchen out with the finest retro cookware from soaps and ceramics to kettles and crackers. Everything here is as beautiful as it is functional.

Hope & Greenwood

Nostalgic treats and old-school sweets are the order of the day at this Enid Blyton-esque sweet shop.


The country’s finest stationary and classiest leather goods can be found at Smythson, where travellers and those in possession of an old school ink pot flock in equal numbers.

James Smith & Sons Umbrellas

It’s raining, it’s pouring, and whilst the old man goes on snoring, Londoners have found a stylish way to beat off the downpours here, at a historical family-run institution.

Rough Trade

More than just a record label, and more than just a shop, Rough Trade makes some of the best compilations, sources new music for your ears, and hosts in-store gigs.


More than just a bookshop (though it’s more magazines, and a seriously excellent selection at that), it’s taken quirky design under its wing at a second location just down the street.
