Regent Street 24/7

Oxford Street is the place that seems to get the most mentions when it comes to London’s shopping scene, but I have always preferred Regent Street. It’s the place that I always make a beeline for when I head south as it houses some of my favourite stores that you simply can’t find anywhere else. So when I was approached by the Regent Street Online hub to share my favourite stores on Regent Street it was easy to accept.

The  Regent Street Online hub has everything you need to plan a trip; Check on your favourite stores, special discount days or events and restaurants located there. Get involved via Regent Street 24/7, the social media hub which groups Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and other social media activity. Just sign in with your prefered social media account and join the community!

My favourite feature has to be the community page of listed stores and each of their social media access points – find your favourite store on Pinterest and tweet them when you buy something!

I’m hoping you guys might be able to also share your favourite haunts in the area and perhaps a new find for me to stop at next week when I’m in the big smoke! So here are my must-visits on Regent Street, where are yours?

1. Top of the list – Anthropologie. I love this store and when it finally came to the UK it was worth a visit to London in itself. The interiors accessories, books and jewellery are incredible – I lose hours in there every time I step over the threshold. Fortunately there are lovely sofas for Pete to park himself on and wait. ;)

2. Zara Home. Similar in style to Anthro, but at a price point more reminiscent of its fashion sister, Zara Home is my first stop when I want a fresh take on interiors and well priced luxe or world inspired accessories.

3. Banana Republic. Now we have one in Manchester I can get a fix sooner, but for years the Regent Street store was a go-to destination for me for work wear, costume jewellery and bags.

4. With all this shopping you’re bound to work up an appetite and my first stop is always the Regent Street Food Quarter. If you’re new to London and want to meet friends or eat something more substantial for lunch than a Pret sandwich, this is the place. Along Heddon Street, this little route detours off the main drag onto a pedestrianised street lined with restaurants and bars – equally good for a post shopping cocktail. I like Tibits, but Aubaine is also a favourite and The Living Room is always a reliable choice.

5. Another brand reaching our to Regent Street from the U.S. is Coach and I love that buying a handbag here means you won’t see it on everyone’s shoulders.

6. Finally, a newcomer and a soon-coming. & Other Stories, the new store from founder’s of H&M and COS promises the former’s well priced fashion forward staples, and the latter’s streamlined aesthetic, so I’ll be checking it out next week and reporting back. And need I mention the soon-comer? J.Crew, I cannot welcome you to Regent Street soon enough. ;)

So now it’s your turn. Where’s your favourite Regent St hangout?

Love,
Rebecca

  1. I went to & Other Stories on Regent Street last week and its amazing! Was so impressed especially with the accessories (although couldnt try on the clothes as am preggo!) Definitely worth a look when you are in town! (BTW – for all you mamas – it replaced the big Mamas and Papas on the corner – not sure where mamas and papas went!)

    Cant wait for J Crew!! xxx

  2. I LOVE Zara Home! Also love the Apple store ;) But my favourite shop on Regent street is a cheat (because they also have a branch on Oxford street!! ;) ), the fabulous Uniqlo -bought an amazing pair of purple jeans in there yesterday for £14!

  3. I did not know that Zara Home existed! I also love Anthropologie, their Edinburgh store makes my all too frequent trips through to the east for work more bearable x

  4. And I fell in love with a Coach bag in Korea but it cost more there (hubby with his internet checking) although I can’t find it online in the right colour so may have to have a sneaky trip to the Coach store too! It’s the gorgeous mint Mini Tanner…
