A guide to the Whiteleys shopping centre


While you’ll probably hear a lot about Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and the like, you most likely won’t hear about the Whiteley shopping centre. Not least, not until you arrive. But thanks to this article, you’ll be a little more aware of what’s available when you arrive. Found in Queensway, Whiteley’s is promoted as “the destination for busy shoppers looking for great retail stores”.

Shopping Mall

A collection of chain retailers can be found inside, and it’s usually open every day of the week, be-tween 8 am and 12 am. What’s particularly charming about this shopping destination is that it doesn’t seek to be the biggest building in town. Rather, it aims to provide a thoroughly enjoyable shopping experience.

What makes this particular shopping venue standout is the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The architecture of the place is exquisite from top to bottom.  Some of the cafes inside clude Costa, Café Nero and Starbucks. For designer clothing, you’ll find Zara, Kurt Geigher, Gap, H&M. For body care, you’ll find the famous Body shop among many others.

While it’s fair to say that this shopping mall is no doubt overshadowed by High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, and Oxford Street, it still has something notable to offer. In a sense, this place repre-sents everything that goes against London’s culture of busyness and frantic shopping.

Shopping Centre

It’s calm and quiet, and without much fuss, it might be the place for you’re looking for a peaceful shopping experience, not too far from Hyde Park and Edgware Road.

The fantastic Hyde Park is so close to this site that we can’t help but recommend you visit. Besides, in Queensway, you can also find a famous ice rink, perfect for some fun with family. The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable is one of the few concert shows we recommend outside of the West End. Playing at the Temple Studios, it’s a story that will capture your imagination and your senses right from the get go.
