Shopping Haul @London

Long overdue post on the hubby and my shopping haul in UK..

1) Magnets 

Left : Stonehenge magnet
Top-Right : London magnets (Budget: 6 for GBP10)
Bottom-Right : Bath Abbey magnet

Thinking of getting some fridge magnets as souvenirs like the ones in top-right? You should get those in Bayswater.

How to get to Bayswater:
->By tube: Take the District/Circle (Green/Yellow) line to Bayswater station. Once you get out of the station, turn left or right...there are plenty of souvenirs shops everywhere here.

In here, you get a whole street of shops which sells plenty of London souvenirs like magnets, keychains, T-shirt etc. And dun worry about the shops closing at 9pm! You can do late night shopping here. For Malaysians, do take note that some shops here have special discounts for Malaysians!


Another option for souvenir - London umbrella!
3) Chocolates
Left : Marks & Spencer Extra Fine Milk Chocolate Bar
Top-Right : Harrods Chocolate Bars
Middle-Right : Kit-Kat Chunky Bars - Peanut Butter Chocolate flavor
Bottom-Right : More of Marks & Spencer Chocolate Bars

You can find the Marks & Spencer chocos in their grocery area. As for the Harrods chocos, I got it from the Harrods department store.

How to get to Harrods:
Address: 87-135 Brompton Rd, London SW1X 7XL, United Kingdom
Phone:+44 20 7730 1234

By tube: Take the Piccadilly line to Knightsbridge station
Opening Hours: 

  • Monday to Saturday 10:00 am – 8:00 pm,

4) Butter or Chocolate Biscuits

Bottom-Right : Marks & Spencer Choco biscuits (back of the box)
Top-Right & Bottom: Marks & Spencer butter biscuits  

You can find the Marks & Spencer biscuits in their grocery area.

5) Handmade soap bars
If you luv handmade soap bars, you can get these soap bars from the Bath souvenir shops. Lovely smell! And they have different variety like Rose Geranium, Rosemary and Lavender and Sea Salt with Essential Oils for Men.
6) Tote and handbags

Longchamp bag
Lots of choices of Harrods Totes and Purse

You can get cheaper Longchamp and Harrods Totes from London. Checkout these bags from Selfridges and Harrods departmental store.

7) Plushies
Fans of Paddington bear? Hello Kitty or Harrods Bear? Cute to keep these as collections.

8)  Cheap shopping haul at Primark!
Primark is Malaysia's version of Mydin. A good place to shop for incredibly dirt cheap clothes from as low as GBP1, shoes, inner wear etc. If you run out of room for your luggage, you can even grab one here at a very cheap price of GBP20 here too!

The flats I bought at Primark for only GBP3! So comfy and it's my favorite daily shoes now. Regret that I did not buy more come back la..even cheaper than getting from Taobao some more after conversion.

How to get to Primark:
Primark Oxford Street East
Address: 14 – 28 Oxford Street & 3 Tottenham Court Road
London, W1D 1AU

By tube: Take the Central Line to Marble Arch. When you are out of the station, cross the road and turn left. Walk straight and you will see Primark on your right.
