    Hit up the markets a quick google search will show you where they are... Borough Market and Maltby St are good. Camden Market is excellent also.

      Camden market sells loads of things from clothes, handmade jewellery, food it really is excellent open 7 days a week it's right off the high street which also has loads of independent stores. Maltby St market is smaller mainly food & drink but also has a number of vintage and reclaimed stalls/shops and really is excellent but is only open at weekends. Bourough market is a permanent market open most days but best to check and is mainly food and drink... · (0 likelikes)

    Try any old supermarket - Sainsbury's has a good supply of proper English items and Little Waitrose is a bit more upmarket and also aims to get local produce into their stores. Obviously Lidl and Aldi have more european stuff

    for your local shops - if you are in london you should go to Borough Market or one of the many farmers markets that take place all over town (usually weekends).

    Hi Isa

    A random selection of places that would be great for a London gift but aren't touristy souvenir shops: Jo Malone in Covent Garden (or a few other places) has lovely fragrances, body and bath products with very English-y flower and plant scents, Paxton & Whitfield Ltd is a very old-fashioned London cheese shop with expert owners, look in the little gift shops in places like Royal Opera House or museums and galleries, and Smythsonor Aspinal of London for little luxury things like notebooks or keyrings (as well as expensive bags and purses). Cute and quirky design products (homewares and stuff) which make great gifts and often stocks British makers and designers can be found at The Conran Shop.

    The Conran ShopHope that helps!

    When you say non-tourist, John Lewis springs to mind. A UK chain of stores that has a reputation for quality and the best customer service. Another one to check out (pardon the pun) is Liberty & Co on Regent Street. It is a fantastic old building as well, so can be a little touristy. If you like books, then you can't miss Hatchards which is also a lovely building. For foodie things I would have to say Fortnum & Mason.

    The easiest answer is Harrods. They have everything. You can find unique gifts and also a ton of foodie items in the basement where they have an entire food hall. One stop shopping!

      Harrods is strictly for tourists, go to Sloane Square and Peter Jones where real Londoners shop, Bond Street is where the best and most expensive shopping can be found including Burlington Arcade. Much more interesting are borough market, Maltby street market for foodies and Broadway market · (0 likelikes)

    I like Harrods, lots of nice shops in the Knightsbridge area. Also Selfridge's is totally remodeled and very nice. Selfridges is near the Bond street area, very good shopping. Most of these stores in these areas are expensive, since our $$$ is not the best.

    Spitalfields Traders Market and Sunday Up Market. Both have unique very high quality items by artisans. Plus at Spitalfields, there's great food - Square Pie, Montezuma's Chocolates, and then the stands have plenty of great purveyors of things including the vegan Rainforest combo thing which I don't remember the name of.
