Shopping outlets in London are a great way for fashion lovers to get their fix without blowing their budget. With many shops stocking designer labels with up to 70% off the retail price (and occasionally even more), there are some real bargains to be had.
There are several outlets in London that are worth a visit if you live in the area or are planning a shopping trip. Some are located in central London, while others are a bit further afield. It’s also worth signing up to mailing lists on the brands’ official websites so that you’ll be informed straight away if there is a sample sale or stock clearance.
