Time For a Shopping Spree? Head to Liberty, Regent Street

It’s the middle of January – the driest, skintest and coldest of times. Obviously my natural response to this terrible wrong that has been done us was to take a trip up to Regent Street for a day of browsing objects I cannot afford alongside objects I could never afford… and where’s the best place to do that? Liberty, of course.

This gargantuan department store dates back to 1875 when it was opened by Mr Arthur Liberty who had a grand total of three staff members. Now it seems to stretch for miles, with rooms upon rooms of luxurious bits and bobs waiting to be discovered.

There’s make-up, furnishings and bath bombs that actually do cost a bomb. There’s a haberdashery bit for the creative ones amongst you – and of course miles upon miles of the classic Liberty prints.

Climb up to the top level and you’ll discover exactly how expensive rugs can get (pretty damn expensive), and what happens if you design a light shaped like a bunny rabbit (I need one).

Take a wander around the chocolate shop – you can get the world’s biggest chocolate coins and jars of sweets shaped like other things which they’re not. Maize chocolate. YES PLEASE.

So – if you do win the lottery anytime soon, or are just looking for a bit of glammed up window shopping have a browse around Liberty. Harrods has got nothing on this place.

There’s even a spa, for god’s sake. A SPA.
