With a population of over 8.5 million people, London is Europe’s 2nd largest city (if we include Moscow). It’s a city with many strings to its bow – with an influential voice on the political stage, influential architecture and a proud history of cultural exports, as well as a vibrant domestic art scene. In short, no matter what your interests are or how niche they might be, London has something for everyone. So it’s no surprise that there is a whole host of wonderful, charming and creative businesses who operate in England’s capital city. Here’s a few of our favourites.
Alice Through The Looking Glass
Although written in 1865, the cultural phenomenon of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is just as prevalent today as it ever was. This chic boutique on Cecil St. pays tribute to everything Alice, in which you can find all sorts of art, merchandise and memorabilia related to the delightful publications from Lewis Carroll.
This novel idea is sure to appeal to those who hate anything related to washing and ironing. After a few clicks on your smartphone, ZipJet will come and pick up your laundry from your home at a time which suits you best (they’ll even wash your suits), and drop it off clean and ironed within 24 hours. With such a different approach and the wet season approaching, ZipJet will likely see some good returns from those not willing to leave their houses.
London Beatles Store
Even though they hail from the city of Liverpool, any city in the UK has a right to cherish the world wide adoration that The Beatles still receive to this day. The London Beatles store is an integral part of the famous Baker Street, and allows Fab 4 fanatics to buy literally anything you can imagine their faces or logo to be printed on, except love, money can’t buy you that.
If you like thumping techno music and flashing LED lights then Cyberdog is the place for you. Techno and rave lovers alike can kit themselves out in the finest clubbing gear. Just follow the sound of dance music and you’ll find it in the Camden stables market.
