Piccadilly in London is a must go for any shopping zealot. It is a place where one can hang around and spend the day window shopping, actually shopping, snack and eat up and maybe have a dance in the evenings. The stretch of Piccadilly from the corner of Regent St. to Green Park offers much for a visitor. There are number of shopping arcades too here. Some of the most exclusive items in the world are available here. Another excellent stretch dotted with some of the most well known retailers is the Old Bond St. and New Bond St. Old Bond St. runs towards the right from Piccadilly (when facing towards Green Park) just before St. James’s St. Of course, one cannot miss it in any way.
