Independent Londonthe Capital’s best small shops
With the virus in our midst and the internet our escape, what is the point of a book about the best independent shops in London? Well, precisely because they are that: independent and oh-so real. These 54 owner-run shops are unique, curated and deeply personal. In a time of social distance and online shopping, going out to these havens of taste is not only satisfying, it’s socially important. Whether you are looking for chic homeware, wellcurated clothing, rare records or the best gifts, this book – packed with original photography, insider tips and interviews with the owners – will tell you exactly where to go. The guide books in the ‘opinionated’ series give our unashamed opinion about the best places to visit in London. Information is easy to come by. Reliable opinion with great photography is more precious.
