Autumn is drawing to a close and as we approach the most wonderful time of the year, we also get some of the worst weather. Freezing winds that sting your hands and face, torrential downpours and crunchy frosts are on their way, and kitting out your wardrobe with some comfy new winterwear is a must-do for this time of year.
But where to go? London’s vast cityscape is home to thousands of clothes shops, and you’ll want to plan ahead before leaving your cosy room at the Park Grand London Lancaster Gate so you don’t get overwhelmed by the enormous array of shops to visit.
Fortunately, we’ve picked out the 3 best places near Paddington to pick up some comfy winter clothes, so you can be both warm and stylish this Winter.
This brilliant store is located at Paddington Station, meaning it’s within walking distance of your room at one of our hotels in Lancaster Gate to start your shopping spree. Fat Face was actually started in 1988 by two skiers selling sweatshirts, so you can be sure to find a vast collection of Christmas and winter jumpers here.
This shop is perfect for couples due to its large stocklist of men’s and women’s clothes, and is also ideal for those looking to get in a spot of early Christmas shopping thanks to its large variety of children’s attire. On top of this, there are student and military discounts available here too, meaning you can get some fabulous winter apparel and have some change leftover for a hot chocolate to warm you up afterwards!
If you’re looking to buy some specifically high-end winter clothes during your stay at one of our hotels in Lancaster Gate, then Thomas Pink is the place to be and is also located in Paddington Station.
Although it’s primarily famed for its vast collection of quality shirts and snappy suits, Thomas Pink also stocks some opulent winter clothes that will keep you cosy whatever the conditions thanks to the abundance of big chunky outercoats and snuggly knitwear that can be found here. What’s more, there’s also a great collection of scarves and gloves here that will keep the icy winter winds at bay.
The GAP store in Whiteley’s shopping centre exemplifies why this brand has been so successful over the years; you’ll find the customary massive range of clothes for men, women and children here. Thick puffer jackets, toasty quilted parkas and comfy anoraks can be found in a plethora of different styles and colours here, allowing you to stay both cosy and fashionable.
In addition to this, GAP’s Holiday Shop is filled with a range of cold-weather accessories that will keep you as snug as a bug. Chunky scarves, faux fur trapper hats and thick suede gloves are available in their droves, and there’s also a Sleep Shop filled with comfortable pyjamas and dressing gowns to take your pick from.
