From the Londontown.com website :

"A wonderful place for shopping all year round, London in all its festive, illuminated grandeur is another experience altogether. With over 30,000 shops you are spoilt rotten for choice. In the shopping haven around Oxford Street you'll find all the usual high street outlets but elsewhere there are hordes of hidden treasures the uninitiated might miss.

"There are over 300 markets, countless out-of-sight shopping arcades and boutiques in the most curious locations. Exploring the city is a great way to spend the day, uncovering your own favourites.

"Sometimes it's hard to know where to look. There are places to find stocking fillers, presents for boys and girls, presents for Mum and presents for kiddies.

These shops - an assortment of old and new, celebrated and mysterious, large and small - house a limitless selection of festive gifts.
