Shopping in Maida Vale
Despite its reputation as a predominantly residential area, Maida Vale still possesses a collection of boutiques and stores. Although Maida Vale is bereft a conventional high street, the unique topography of Maida Vale provides the area with a sense of character found off the beat and track. Exploring the winding side streets that break off the main residential areas is itself is an activity that is worth dedicating an afternoon. Each side street will reveal countless hidden treasures.
Outside of the chic boutiques of Maida Vale, one of London’s most infamous shopping districts, Oxford Street, is a short tube journey away and offers a more contemporary shopping experience. Oxford Street contains a seemingly infinite collection of high street retail stores whilst the nearby Regent Street offers a more exclusive shopping experience, with designer emporiums owned by the likes of Burberry, Abercrombie & Fitch and Hugo Boss lining the streets.
