This world-class shopping haunt is divided into northern "New" (1710) and southern "Old" (1690) halves. You can spot the juncture by a bronzed bench on which Franklin D. Roosevelt sits companionably next to Winston Churchill. On New Bond Street you'll find Sotheby's, the world-famous auction house, at No. 35, as well as upscale retailers like Asprey's, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Georg Jensen, and Church's. You'll find even more opportunities to flirt with financial
ruin on Old Bond Street: flagship boutiques of top-end designers like Chanel, Gucci, and Yves St. Laurent; an array of fine jewelers including Tiffany; and art dealers Colnaghi, Spink Leger, and Agnew's. Cork Street, which parallels the top half of Old Bond Street, is where London's foremost dealers in contemporary art have their galleries.

Great designer shops for the fashionista in you. Watch out for the wacky exchange rates, and get those VAT receipts!
