The glitz, glamour and lights in one of the prettiest cities at Christmas are here; the shoppers of Oxford Street are out in full. And why wouldn’t they be? It’s the most famous shopping destination in the world for a reason.

On the other hand, if you’re on the lookout for some gift inspiration and a half-day pitstop for something tasty to eat/drink in between, Noho is a fabulous choice. Get the added bonus of navigating through fewer crowds as you ponder which gift your nan would appreciate most (a cashmere throw or rhubarb and raspberry gin?)

There’s something for everyone, and this season we’re celebrating the alternative indie stores of Fitzrovia. Let’s put the fun back into Christmas shopping again!
