The ideal destination – Christmas Shopping in London, Southbank
Independent boutiques not only offer the opportunity to find something special but you will also enjoy the experience more as the service and attention to detail will be tailored personally to you.
Gabriel’s Wharf is the ideal location for festive fun and shopping, the picturesque square between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridges has a fabulous atmosphere and is framed by a wonderful selection of boutique shops with a variety of products.
Oxo Tower Wharf is another such place offering quirky shops on several floors with fashion, jewellery, home-wares and affordable art.
Support local businesses whilst also doing your Christmas Shopping!
Supporting local businesses is an important and worthwhile activity, knowing you are helping business owners and their teams, but also the local community, improving the local economy and therefore making a big difference where it’s needed most.
On average, of every pound you spend in your local independent shops around 50p goes back into the local community, whereas only around 5p makes its way back when you buy from retail multiples.
Making Christmas shopping fun – take part in a Christmas Shopping Crawl!
To add a little fun to your visit complete our Christmas Shopping Crawl between 12th November and Christmas. Visit all of the participating shops and you will be in with a chance of winning a goody bag full of surprises donated from the stores at Oxo Tower and Gabriel’s Wharf. The prize fund is growing every day and so far includes jewellery, clothing, accessories, shopping and discount vouchers.
