Shopping, shopping, shopping!
You can never go too far wrong with shopping - even if its only window shopping. For posh togs try Knightsbridge, where Harrods and Harvey Nichols reign supreme.

Alternatively, lose yourself amongst the beautiful boutiques that adorn the Kings Road. (Blending in with the locals is easy - just look stylish and immaculate!) For designer labels head straight for Bond Street. And for a truly Great British shopping experience (and a spot of celebrity spotting) lose yourself in Selfridges.

Last, but certainly not least, no London shopping trip is complete without some bargain hunting in the city's celebrated markets such as Camden and Islington markets. Most famous of all, of course, is Portobello Road market in Notting Hill on Sunday mornings for some uniquely beautiful clothes, antiques and more.

Check out the UK Government page on VAT Refunds for travellers and Duty Free shopping in the UK. Know your rights with regard to shopping and Consumer Protection in the UK.

Something special
To impress a loved one or to treat yourself to something really special, experiment with exotic lingerie at specialists Agent Provocateur, for both him and her. Alternatively, go to Rigby and Peller, the Queens Corsetieres - by Appointment to Her Majesty.

If shopping's been just all too much! then have a day of undisturbed relaxation at The Sanctuary. (Sorry gentlemen, it's ladies only).

To rest your legs, do the quintissentially English thing by having Tea at the Ritz. (Gentleman are advised to wear a tie). Not quite as refined, but equally unmissable is some light refreshment at the British Museum restaurant which is enclosed under the most magnificent glass panelled ceiling you'll ever see.


Shows, theatre and cinema

You can legally buy alcohol in a British pub when you are 18 or older. However, you may be asked for ID if you look a little young. Our pubs and bars generally close at 11pm, except on Sundays when they cloe at 10.30pm. Britons rarely tip in pubs, but may do so in bars if the drinks have been brought to their table.
