If you just love those designer labels, then you will already know that London is a mecca for luxury shopping.

Many people staying at the Montcalm London head straight to Bond Street or Regent Street to get their fashion fix, but there are so many more hidden gems for shopping aficionados located off the beaten path.

So, the next time you stay at the Montcalm Brewery or the Montcalm London, make sure you don’t miss out on these high-end shopping spots.

Dover Road Market

Hidden in a recently redeveloped industrial area, Dover Street Market isn’t a market at all! In fact, it’s a six-story department store hosting several big designer names including Alexander McQueen and Saint Lauren.

With so many luxury labels to discover, head over to the store early before returning to the Montcalm London for a bottomless Mimosa brunch, a naughty but nice way to refuel after splashing the cash!

King’s Road 

The King’s Road in Chelsea is awash with independent boutiques, designer brands and trendy interior design shops all vying for your attention. Here, you’ll find high-end homewares and unique fashion that you won’t find on atypical high street. To get there from the Montcalm Brewery, take the Tube to Markham Street and you’ll arrive in thirty minutes.


No stay at the Montcalm London would be complete without visiting one of the UK’s most iconic department stores. Liberty opened its doors in 1875 and has been home to some of the country’s best designers ever since. It features collections from the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Chloé and Tod’s and it also has an impressive beauty hall, making it a great spot for the seriously luxe shopper.

Mount Street

Located in Mayfair, Mount Street is fast becoming one of London’s most fashionable areas thanks to its big designer names and great mix of art galleries and boutiques.

It takes just twenty minutes to reach the area from the Montcalm London, so you’ll be able to enjoy our leisurely bottomless Mimosa brunch before heading off to find yourself that must-have wardrobe staple.

The Royal Exchange

If you don’t want to travel too far from the heart of the city, The Royal Exchange is a luxury shopping arcade housed in an impressive 16th-century building. Here you’ll find Gucci and Tiffany and Co amongst the beautiful arches and columns, plus it’s only an eleven-minute tube ride from the Montcalm Brewery so you can easily head back to drop off any purchases you’ve made during your visit.

Connaught Village

A real hidden gem, Connaught Village is a haven of independent shops and premier brands in an area with a leafy village feel. Here you’ll find luxury homewares, designer labels and an array of colourful shop fronts plus the odd traditional London pub. It all marries together to make Connaught Village a shopping experience in London like no other.

Just don’t forget to bring your credit cards as there’s so much on offer!
