Top 10 Berwick Street Shops

FEATURES | LONDON GUIDES | | Leave a Comment

Soho’s Berwick Street is a popular eating and shopping area, famous for its market and being a lunchtime meeting spot for London’s creative set. It also is home to several record stores and was the setting for the Oasis album cover of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?

Recently stallholders have raised concerns over the gentrification of the area and the proposed privatisation of the market, which is expected to raise rents and cause the area to lose its quirky identity. For now, it’s still a great place to eat, shop and browse the many fashion, lifestyle and music boutiques.

 

Here’s our selection of some of the best shops for fashion and accessories on Berwick Street:
