London: Best museums and shopping

VB-00005201-001A couple of weeks ago, Forbes.com made a list over the Worlds Shopping Cities and we are glad to present the lists number 1 city: London. Here’s the motivation to why Forbes thinks London is the best shopping capital in the world:

”In England, the High Street–or the main road in a neighborhood –is ground zero for shopping. In London, there are more High Streets than one can count, so it’s no surprise it hosts more than half of the world’s top retailers, including the young and trendy Topshop as well as high-end department stores like Liberty of London and Harvey Nichols. Looking for something more niche? Try Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market–a super-boutique featuring hard-to-find designers like Anne Valerie Hash–or Labour of Love, which stocks little-known labels such as Louis Amstrup.”

Also, we got very good listings when the Swedish site Triviago.se listed the 10 Top Museums in Europe. According to their listing we got three out of ten; Madame Tussauds (1st place), The British Museum (3rd place) and The London Dungeon (5th place). Why don’t you try them out yourselves? And if you don’t find any of these museums appealing, why not visit our destination guides, and find out what other museums or activities Britain has in store for you:

London Dungeon
VisitBritain Norge, Reiseruter
Itineraries, VisitBritain Finland
Rejseguides, VisitBritain Danmark
