Search for cheap hotels near Whiteleys Department Store
Whiteleys Shopping Centre was London's first department store, before enormous retail spaces such as Selfridges and Harrods were built and subsequently became the largest stores in the UK. Whiteleys is located in Bayswater, north West London, a picturesque area of the city. William Whiteley originally established the store in 1863, when it was just a small drapery store with few employees. However, the store grew in success until it was necessary to move to new premises, the elegant Georgian building designed by John Belcher and John James Joass, which it still resides in today This was opened by the Lord Mayor of London in 1911 and soon become one of London’s most luxurious stores, with a mention in the play Pygmalion.
When the store first opened, it had a theatre and a golf curse on the roof, although these have since been removed. It was a successful luxury goods store until it was converted into offices throughout the 50s and 70s, but after extensive restoration, where the interior was modernised, but the picturesque facade was kept, it re-opened in 1989.
Whiteleys may not be as large as Westfield or as world-renowned as Harrods, but it is still a very popular establishment, which attracts many visitors throughout the year. The stores aren't as luxurious as before, with mostly high street names, but you can still while away an afternoon browsing and pick up some souvenirs to take back home. Fashion brands such as French Connection, Accessorize, Aftershock, Kurt Geiger and Karen Millen sit side by side with quirky independent shops such as Bexy Lady, Robot Bunny, Victory Vintage and Exquiss. There are also pop up shops, which arrive in the store temporarily, selling unusual goods, such as 'make your own chewing gum' and brands from LA, which are unavailable in the UK, so you never know what you'll see on each visit.
The centre is also home to beauty stores, home ware stores, mobile phone shops, men's fashion stores and artisan food shops. The centre also includes a range o eateries, including chains such as Ask! Italian, Cafe Rouge and Chili’s Restaurant, which offer flavours from around the world; and tempting snack shops such as Euphorium Bakery, where you can relax after a hard, long day of shopping.
As if there isn't enough to see already, the theatre that featured in the first Whiteley's store has since been reinstated as an Odeon cinema and the centre also includes a bowling alley, so there is plenty to keep the kids amused if you want to shop undisturbed. A great place for any shopaholic to explore and splash some cash. The Bayswater area of London is also a great place to stay, with plenty of low-cost hotels and more peace and quiet than the dead center of London. The Shaftesbury Hyde Park International offers stylish rooms in a very convenient location, and the Royal Hyde Park Hotel offers low-cost rooms for the budget traveller. Hotel 43 offers basic but tasteful rooms and Hyde Park Executive Apartments offer a home away from home.
