London bucks the trend by confirming more shoppers during festive season

Industry: Travel

The capital’s reputation for its shopping opportunities has been further bolstered following figures published by the British Retail Consortium | LSE Vacations News

United Kingdom (PRUnderground) January 21st, 2013

London has always been a popular venue for city breaks, with millions of people from all over the world flocking to the capital for a chance to explore its many sights. One of the most famous draws is the fantastic shopping experience, with the likes of Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Knightsbridge offering some of the finest places to find yourself a new wardrobe of clothes or the latest pieces of technology. A stay in one of the many London hostels available from the LSE could offer the perfect method of exploration.

The capital’s reputation for its shopping opportunities has been further bolstered following figures published by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), which found that the number of shoppers on the streets of London rose during the Christmas period. Although the figures showed that overall numbers of shoppers across the UK dropped in December, London bucked the trend and confirmed that levels were up by 3.1%. With such a diversity of shopping establishments such as Harrods, Hamleys and Selfridges, it comes as little surprise that more people flocked to the capital in search of the perfect Christmas presents for their friends and family.

The results speak for themselves, proving that London is still a shopper’s paradise. If you are looking forward to a stay in any of the cheap London accommodation options available from the LSE, why not discover the retail experience for yourself?
