No matter your budget, there is a wealth of retail therapy on offer in South Kensington. Shop with oligarchs in Harrods or the designer boutiques on Sloane Street or head for the more wallet friendly shops on the Kings Road and the famous Peter Jones department store on Sloane Square.
The shopping meccas of Oxford Street and Regents Street are a short tube ride away or for a less crowded experience, you can head up to Westfield, the largest mall in Europe where every brand imaginable is available, both designer and budget.
Food shopping is no less an experience and every taste imaginable is catered for. The food halls at Harrods are well worth a visit and a magical assault on the senses. But for every day grocery shopping, you will have 3 of the main supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. Supplement your staple items with delicious morsels from a variety of specialist delis. The heavy French and American presences here ensure some delicious treats are on offer while some of the shops offer the American staples craved by expats. Every Saturday, there is a farmers market where fresh from the farm produce can be bought for budget prices.
