Overflowing baskets of port and foie gras, kidskin gloves to fight the cold, a cut-to- covet bespoke suit, red carpet-worthy gowns with all the trimmings – that’s what you’ll find this season in London’s fashionable West End when you indulge in a pre-holiday splurge from Regent Street to Saville Row. Beautiful presents will always be appreciated by those on your holiday shopping list, but if you really want your gift to be remembered, consider something with British cachet. Plan now, make those flight reservations, and don’t forget to take along this little guide to the West End for shopping, dining, and a truly wonderful place to stay.
