Shopping & Fashion

From £60,000 jewel-encrusted shoes in Harrods to second hand books and furniture at Portobello Road market, London is a shopaholics dream.

The new Westfield Shopping Centre (not far from Bloomsbury by bus or tube) is Londons newest shopping area and Europes largest in-city shopping centre. The centre, between Kensington and Shepherds Bush, contains 265 stores, a 16-screen multiplex cinema, gym and library.
