Shopping malls in City of London
East central London has an amazing array of places to shop til you drop. Check out the city's shopping centres, where you can find all your favourite shops under one roof. Most shopping centres also have places to stop for coffee and lunch. The larger ones may also have childcare facilities and entertainment venues such as cinemas.
The City shops service a well-paid and traditionally male population, but things are changing. For a long time, the Royal Exchange – with more than 30 high-end shops – was the only “mall” (how they would hate that term), but in 2010 the Jean Nouvel-designed One New Change opened right next to St Paul’s and immediately became known as the “Stealth Bomber” because of its smokey windows. It stocks mainly High Street brands, from Reiss to Oliver Bonas.
East central London has several distinct shopping areas and shopping streets, many of which have their own themes or specialities. Shopping in London is exciting and varied: from luxury goods to quirky finds, to large shopping centres and famous London department. You can easily spend an hour, an afternoon or a whole day browsing shops in London.
One New Change is the place to 'Play in the City' located next to St. Paul's Cathedral. It is London’s premium shopping destination, complete with cafés and restaurants from renowned chefs and flagship menswear and womens wear fashion brands, with a 6th floor Roof Terrace offering breathtaking views across London. With brands including Topshop, H&M, Banana Republic, Reiss, Hugo Boss, All Saints, Dune, Office, Links of London and Swarovski, there is something for everyone from men's and women's fashion to accessories and jewellery. Favourites Nando's, EAT, Byron and Zizzi's are joined by a concept restaurant, Barbecoa, from Jamie Oliver and Adam Perry-Lang, who also have recently launched 'Barbecoa To-Go'.
