Napoleon called England a nation of shopkeepers, and London proves him right. From huge malls to small, family-run shops, traditional markets to modern department stores; shopping in London has endless possibilities.

One of the best places to find a bargain is at Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill. Filled with over 2,000 stalls, this huge market sells everything, including second-hand clothes, antiques and books. On Sundays, Petticoat Lane Market in Spitalfields is the place to buy clothes, and other big street markets can be found at Camden Lock and Brick Lane.

The prettiest market in London is the Columbia Road Flower Market. This is held in Tower Hamlets every Sunday, when the streets are filled with stalls of colourful flowers and plants. Book-lovers should head for the Southbank Book Market, under Waterloo Bridge.
