Need to go london for a Visa tomorrow. Probably going to have a few hours spare.

Anyone been out recently and can comment on whether it’s worth the journey?

I live in Aberdeen so an hour and half train journey is close enough.

I don't live too far from there but have never come away feeling anything other than disappointed and drained.

I'll usually have bought some modestly discounted yet still expensive tat to justify the journey too.

Go to the Royal Academy or Tate if you've got some time to kill in town.

It's certainly not great now, purely aimed at the rich Asians market but it has been great.

Vans used to be dirt cheap with fantastic staff (then they got asked to leave because the brand wasn't high class enough).

Bicester also had the single best shop I have ever visited, the RRL pop-up Jawdropping!
It was full of confused tourists asking where the gear with the horse on was and it was ridiculously cheap.
I bought a shit load of stuff there but if it opened again I would buy more Laughing out loud
Selvedge jeans for £30, tees for £10/£20, jackets for £100 etc

I went today, first time, utterly fucking obscene at midday.

Managed to get a decent Ralph shirt and she got some pretty good Missoni stuff but were we in the minority of non-tourists. Might be a cultural thing but there's a lot of fairly 'pushy' people there, and spitters.
