The best fashion outlet in London is Aquascutum Factory Shop in Hackney. This great store sells a plethora of designer threads from super-smart suits to on-trend chunky cardigans – and everything in between – in a wide range of sizes, styles and brands.
It isn't just men's, women's and kids' clothes either; you can also find stunning accessories ranging from bags, scarves and hats to belts, ties and cufflinks. You can even find specialist items like golf gear, business and travel gifts and the occasional item of homeware. And everything in the store is discounted by as much as 30 percent.
Looking for a specific designer brand? No problem - several fashion designers have outlet stores in London. Two of the best include Paul Smith Outlet Store in Mayfair and The Burberry Factory Store in Hackney.
London isn't exactly a mecca for outlet shopping, with most of the best outlet stores located outside of the capital itself.
That said, there are a few outlet stores for specific brands that are well worth a visit - and the best are on Chatham Place in Hackney. Try the Aquascutum Factory Shop at number 7-8 for tailoured suits, classics macs and cosy knits at up to 30% off, or head to the warehouse-like Burberry Factory Shop at number 29 for seconds and excess stock at up to 50% off. Just around the corner at 86 Morning Lane you'll find Pringle, home to Scottish knitwear and leather goods.
If you don't mind a trip out of town the best place to go outlet shopping in the UK is Bicester Village in Oxfordshire, just an hour's train journey from Marylebone station. Here you'll find more than 130 boutiques from every top brand from Mulberry to Ralph Lauren, all offering up to 60% off.
