You should have look at Topshop! I have been in London 2 years ago. And in my opinion, topshop is one of the best shops there :)

go to camden market!! best on a weekday, less people. it can be difficult to find your way in the first time, but ask ppl and keep at it lol
seriously, its amazing, vintage and second hand clothes and jewellery along wth new stuff thats imported. best of all pretty much all prices are negociable!! seriously worth a visit, just get off the tube at camden town :D

carnaby street & camden market are two of the best places you could go for old vintagey stuff. all the ones i've heard of/been to have been pretty much mentioned. oh and there's this place called annie's which sells these amazing dresses. it's in angel.

Ah, to be honest if you want expensive vintage stuff then Carnaby street, the vintage section of highstreet shops like Topshop have good stuff and are pretty.
However, since noone likes spending loads on vintage, I'd definitely try the vintage shops in the backstreets of Covent Garden. Get to Covent Garden and then enjoy the shops around there and then keep walking out till you get to the lovely backstreets, vintage shops like POP boutique are nice. And then yup, Brick Lane is a definite place to go for vintage. Don't forget to have a bagel while ya there. It's like a compulsory Brick Lane buy. ;)
ENJOY.

Like everyone else has already said, Camden is brilliant for vintage finds.

When I was in London last month I went to Notting Hill and found the most amazing thrift stores there, including one that sold everything for £3, where I got a gorgeous dress.

I also found an amazing shop that sells one of a kind pieces, designed and made by the lady who owns the shop, and I bought the most beautiful velvet cape there.

The most important thing to remember is to haggle... I saved over £100 in two days just by negotiating the asking prices.

Have a great time, I'm so jealous!

hey! like everyone said topshop ixford st is amazing! they have alot of unknown brands and vintage on the bottom floor, also get yourself down kings road.. thats pretty awesome.

Unfortunatley ASOS is online only they dont have any stores! i would also get down to some of the markets, and check out some charity stores in more affluent areas such as chelsea and kensington for some vinatge treats!

enjoy! xx
