London’s other great shopping strip: The King’s Road

Quentin Long takes a stroll down the ‘other’ shopping street in London, away from the bright lights of Oxford Street.

You know: Oxford Street

No trip to London is complete without at least a day wandering Oxford Street and dropping in at Selfridges, Marks and Spencers, John Lewis, the Nike Store, Top Shop and Top Man and many, many more.

You should also try: King’s Road

The ‘KR’ runs from the posh Sloane Square through Chelsea and Fulham and has some of the best boutiques in the land. It was the birthplace of punk and Vivienne Westwood. As a general rule, the further you walk away from Sloane Square the more affordable the boutique. It is great for people watching.

Megan’s deli and restaurant: Beautiful little deli and restaurant with leafy courtyard; favourite with some celebs if you believe The Daily Mail.
