Shops of all shapes and colours.

This area to the north of Westminster is the perfect place to see a little of everything. A walk between Regent Street and Leicester Square is enough for trying all types of shops. There, in Regent Street, we can go into Hamleys department store for example which is one of the largest toy stores in the world where you'll feel like a child again for a few moments. If you walk in front of Piccadilly Circus, sports lovers can go into Lillywhites which is possibly the cheapest sports shop in the city, as well as countless shops that open from the square and branch out towards all places. This area was also visited during the sixties by groups such as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and it still is, so if you're a music lover, you are going to feel Berwick Street calling you which is occupied by several new and second-hand music shops. For a fashion tour, go to Kings Road and Carnaby Street where you'll find well-known brands. To end your walk in a pleasant way, it's best to go to the small market on Berwick Street, which, due to its modest suburban spirit, does not appear on maps or in guides, but buying some fruit from here will make you feel as if you were another Londoner.
