Mini-Guide: London

What I love about London is that there is always something new to discover, no matter how many times you have been there before.
I absolutely love sightseeing and think London’s history is so interesting that I could do the most popular tourist places again and again.

But especially when you are among English people who have seen everything multiple times and when the obvious spots are too busy during Christmas time, it is nice to just hang out in the centre and look for presents.

Here is my mini guide for a short gift shopping weekend. I hope you enjoy!


Victoria's secret
If you (like me) live in a country where Victoria’s Secret doesn’t exist, you might find it just as exciting to look for underwear, accessories and make-up here.
111 New Bond Street
Be it a present or just a treat to yourself – Charbonnel et Walker is the right shop if you like chocolate in fancy design boxes.
28 Old Bond Street
Burlington Arcade
Burlington Arcade is always a good idea if you are looking for antique jewellery, decoration and accessories.
51 Piccadilly
Sotheby's auction house
Auction house Sotheby’s displays many different artefacts from paintings to jewellery. Not that I could afford anything in there but it is nice to look around. It has a small arty book shop as well which is perfect to find very unique presents.
34-35 New Bond Street
Fortnum & Mason
Fortnum & Mason: One of the oldest department stores in England is an absolute must for me every time I go to London. It still has that old-fashioned 19th century style and gives you the opportunity to shop for delicacies, clothes, cosmetics, decoration and accessories. I like to get tea there which comes in beautiful tin boxes and is absolutely delicious.
