Bond Street, London

(4.3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Bond Street is a major shopping street in the West End of London. It links Piccadilly in the south to Oxford Street in the north and has been popular for retail since the 18th century, being the home of many fashion outlets that sell prestigious and expensive items. The southern section is Old Bond Street and the longer northern section New Bond Street—a distinction not generally made in everyday usage.The street was built on fields surrounding Clarendon House on Piccadilly, which were developed by Sir Thomas Bond. It was built up in the 1720s, and by the end of the 18th century was a popular place for the upper-class residents of Mayfair to socialise. Prestigious and expensive shops were established along the street, but it declined as a centre of social activity in the 19th century, although it held its reputation as a fashionable place for retail, and is home to the auction houses Sotheby's and Bonhams (formerly Phillips) and the department stores Fenwick and Tiffany's. It is one of the most expensive and sought after strips of real estate in Europe.GeographyBond Street is the only street that runs between Oxford Street and Piccadilly. Old Bond Street is at the southern end between Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens. The northern section, New Bond Street, extends as far as Oxford Street. The entire street is around 0.5mi long. Many of the shops in the street are less than 20ft wide.

  • Walked along Bond Street on my recent visit to London. Plenty of high end shops if that's your thing, but otherwise it's just a normal street a little less hectic than Oxford street.  more »
  • Another popular shopping street, even here prices are really high. There are the best chains, Prada, Louis Vuitton, the only sure thing and that your wallet will cry

  • For fashion fanatics, Bond Street and its surroundings are the places where you must go for luxury shopping. New Bond Street boasts one of the world's largest and finest concentrations of shops of renowned fashion designers, including Donna Karan, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Nicole Fahri, Armani, Versace, Valentino, Gucci, Hermes and Ralph Lauren.La quintessentially English style lies in new stores of Mulberry and Burberry. Bond Street also hosts the auction house Sotheby's and in the area are born different antique shops and markets. And if the diamonds are your weak, Cartier, Tiffany and Asprey & Garrard were among the around lying in this expensive and exclusive way. I still find that London is beautiful not for this, are very different things attract me. I though to move often from this and other shopping streets whenever I go to London, because they are centrally located, also headed elsewhere, it is inevitable to exploit them. And then, this is also an aspect of the city. Do 4 points for level high and the concentration of shops, i.e. do an assessment of the level of these streets than similar ones in other large cities, not because it is so fascinated by luxury fashion.
