Not everyone visits London to see its iconic sights. Many people come here to enjoy world-class shopping. So why not stay at one of the best hotels in North London? The 4-star Best Western Palm Hotel London will be at your disposal whilst you shop your heart out during your London visit.
Large, elegantly furnished rooms with comfortable beds will ensure restful nights. You’ll need them before you head down Oxford Street to pay visits to Selfridges or John Lewis and the House of Fraser. Then there’s Regent Street with Liberty and Hamley’s toy store, and many flagship stores for brands such as Apple, H&M, Anthropology, Superdry and the world’s largest Burberry store.
From Regent Street you can sidetrack into Carnaby Street and Kingly Court for a more idyllic shopping experience. Explore London’s quieter side streets and head south and east to get to Covent Garden.
By the time you’ve visited Covent Garden, you’ll be exhausted and will want to return to your hotel room with your new treasures. Take the Northern Line from Leicester Square to get back to Golders Green in twenty minutes. A short walk later you’ll find yourself returned to the Best Western Palm Hotel, one of the finest 4-star hotels in north London.
Enjoy some quiet time in the idyllic area, venture to Hampstead Heath on a sunny day and take in the views across London. Relax in the spacious guest lounge at the hotel and have a drink at the bar, which is open for you around the clock.
Dine at the onsite restaurant or spoil yourself with room service. Free WiFi is available in public areas and in your room, so you can research London’s shopping venues for the next day. Perhaps you want to get bespoke men’s clothing down Jermyn Street or visit Sotheby’s on Bond Street, along with its elegant designer stores of the world’s most exclusive brands. Many London visitors will venture here just to do a little window shopping.
Let’s not forget about Harrods, which you will find in Knightsbridge, only about 20 minutes on tube from hotels in north London. It’s easily combined with a visit to the museums in South Kensington. Exercise your mind at the Science Museum and afterward take the bus to Harrods, where you can indulge your guilty pleasures. That is true all along Kensington High Street.
Relaxing in your hotel room, enjoying the luxurious walk-in shower in your bathroom, you can let your mind wander and go through all available options. London is a huge city and the shopping options are seemingly endless. On a rainy day you could decide to visit the Westfield London shopping mall in Shepherd’s Bush. Or check out the Canada Place Mall in Canary Wharf, which houses the Reebok Sports Club, the largest health club in Europe.
No London visit is complete without a visit to Portobello Market in Notting Hill. Not only is it a beautiful residential area to explore, but you’ll find yourself scouring the world’s largest antique’s market with over 1000 dealers. Remember to go on a Saturday, when the main market is open.
It is worth noting that Palm Hotel London near Wembley is located very conveniently, which means it is temptingly close to the London Designer Outlet in Wembley Park. Many major brands under one roof and free parking, if you spend more than £30 on your shopping. What more could you ask for? You can get there in twenty minutes by car and shop to your heart’s content.
Of course, your car will park for free back at the hotel as well. Ask the friendly reception staff for further shopping tips around London, they’ll be happy to help.
