Welcome to Racked's first annual Travel Week. Through Friday, roughly half of our content will be devoted to everything you need to know about traveling to and from New York City—whether you're entertaining out-of-towners, killing time at the airport, or planning the ultimate staycation.
After exploring the retail efforts of France, Australia, and Germany within city limits, we're shining a light on our neighbors just across the pond: the British. It might cost less to fly to London than it does to take home an Alexander McQueen dress, but Madison Avenue sure is a lot closer. Click through for a map for the city's best British shopping, from the high and mighty (Stella, Burberry, and the like), to the mass appeal (that's Topshop, of course), and where to find those breakout talents you can't stop reading about.
