It’s not just London’s landmarks that are filled with history. The West End has been England’s top shopping destination for centuries and a handful of stores remain from some of its earliest days as the fashionable destination for fine goods.

These stores have stood the test of time, riding out the trends and honing their craft. Many of the interiors remain relatively unchanged and some are still run by the families who founded them. For a truly unique West End shopping experience that combines history and a quintessentially British experience, seek out these gems that have been serving the area for over 150 years.
