Travel Diaries; The Liberty of London

image

The Liberty of London is the oldest department store in London and it was founded by Arthur Lasenby Liberty 140years ago. He got the lease of half a shop on Regent’s street with money he loaned from his father in-law.

Few years after he died, the magnificent store was completed and it was built from the timbers of two ships. Through the years, the ‘tudor’ building store has sustained its name and is a popular destination for fashion lovers and tourist.

With a total of four floors, an underground and ground floor, this store is truly any fashionista’s dream.

From women’s, men’s and children’s wear, and with over 50 designer brands in apparel and accessories as well as Liberty branded items, with every turn there’s something that catches the eyes.

Ed Bustell, the present Managing director, and his team hosted a  open call last year for artists/designers in which original ideas and items were purchased from the artists/designers and these items wouldn’t be found anywhere else in London!

Aside being unique in its aesthetics, and really old, it is amongst the top 10 stores in Britain!

As low as a little over a pound to as high as some good thousands, there’s something for everyone (..well almost everyone)

When next you are in central London, and happen to be close to oxford circus station, you can take the short 4minutes walk to the store on Reagent street and see for yourself because pictures and my words has not done this store proper justice.
