London designer outlets are the best place to go to get designer clothes at a fraction of the original cost. London outlets are perfect for shopping as you can go to many stores, all under one roof, in one trip. There are several designer outlets in London and the surrounding areas, and all of them are worth a visit.
You’ll find designer clothes, accessories, homeware, make up and skincare at seriously reduced prices. It’s a great way to save money in London and get more items for your money. Many outlets also have food options available, so why not make a day of it?
1. ICON Outlet at the O2
Interestingly, the ICON Outlet at the O2 is actually located inside the O2 arena. The arena itself is often used for concerts and so there is a large number of stores and restaurant all under one (very iconic) roof.
There are many designer clothing and accessories shops at the ICON outlet, including Ted Baker, New Balance, Asics, Dune, Gant, Hackett, Hobbs, Levi’s, Moss Bros, Next, Radley, Reiss and Tommy Hilfiger. And many others! See here for the full list of shops.
But it’s not all clothing. You’ll also find Yankee Candles, Sunglass Hut, Clarins and The Cosmetics Company. The Cosmetics Company is an absolute must-visit for any skincare and make up fans. The store stocks brands such as Jo Malone, Tom Ford, Origins, Clinique and Bobbi Brown (among many others) at a great discount. On my visit I bought an Origins moisturiser for 40% off which was a great bargain!
📍 Peninsula Square, London SE10 0DX
2. London Designer Outlet Wembley
Another London outlet that rivals ICON at the O2 is the London Designer Outlet Wembley. Located in the heart of Wembley Park, a short walk from the tube station, in close proximity to Wembley Stadium.
Promising up to 70% off RRP, this London outlet has some serious deals on offer. Brands include Adidas, Asics, Calvin Klein, Converse, Levi’s, M&S, New Balance, Next, The North Face, Tommy Hilfiger, Superdry and Vans. You’ll also find non-clothing brands such as Denby, The Cosmetics Company, The Body Shop and Beauty Outlet. Find a full list of the stores here.
Again, all stores are under one roof, and if you like the sound of any of these brands, it is well worth a visit. Stock is usually past season, but sometimes you’ll find that the stock is even current season!
📍 Wembley Park Blvd, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 0FD
3. Renascence Designer Outlet
Based in the heart of famously fashionable Chelsea, Renascence Designer Outlet is without a doubt one of the best London designer outlets. With high end brands at highly discounted prices, don’t sleep on visiting this fabulous store.
Designer brands include Dries Van Noten, Saint Laurent, Dior, Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Raf Simons and many more. The outlet also holds sales from time to time, where you can grab designer items for up to 80% off. This is a true London outlet gem, and discounts on designer clothing just don’t get better than this!
Renascence also have an online shop, but the selection is not as extensive as their bricks and mortar store. That said, follow @renascencelondon on social media to get the latest news and updates from the store.
📍 22 Park Walk, London SW10 0AQ
4. Paul Smith Avery Row Sale Shop
Once upon a time, Paul Smith Avery Row was the second Paul Smith store that was opened in London. Nowadays it is the Paul Smith outlet store which sells products from previous seasons. Shoppers agreed that this place was a goldmine when it came to affordable gifts and high value bargains.
The amount of discount does vary, but most pieces have pretty remarkable discounts. This is definitely one of those ‘best kept secret’ London outlets. You’ll find clothes, shoes and accessories, with some shirts reduced from £150 to £49. Be sure to join the mailing list for this particular store so that you never miss out future promotions.
📍 23 Avery Row, Mayfair, London, W1K 4AX
5. Burberry Outlet
Burberry is as British as it comes when it comes to designer brands, so it’s no wonder there is a dedicated outlet store in London. At the outlet you’ll find a large variety of items- from clothing to accessories. Unlike sample sales you’ll find all available sizes ranged.
In terms of the discount you can expect, this tends to vary. Some shoppers report getting 50% off coats or shoes but this is not guaranteed. If you are in the Hackney area, it’s a good one to visit, but if not you might be best sticking to seasonal sales or heading to an outlet village that ranges Burberry.
📍 29-31 Chatham Pl, London E9 6LP
6. Hackney Walk
Another designer offering is Hackney Walk. Hackney Walk is famous for being a luxury designer outlet district in London. Unfortunately since opening in 2017, only one shop still stands on Hackney Walk, called Present. Present sells designer outerwear from C.P. Company, Stone Island and Woolrich.
Unless you live in Hackney and love the above outerwear brands, it’s probably not worth a visit. It’s a shame because the district suffered during 2020 closures and has not found its feet again since.
📍 103 Morning Ln, London E9 6LS
7. The Box
Technically The Box is a venue where designer sample sales are hosted rather than a true outlet store, but it deserves a mention because of the extensive range of designer brands that have held sample sales at this location. The sample sales are a great opportunity to nab designer pieces at 20% – 90% off the RRP.
Past sample sales at The Box include Joseph, Paul Smith and Christopher Kane. The venue is based in Hackney, and it has an active presence on social media. Follow @thebox_london on Instagram to keep up to date with what’s on.
📍 4-6 Ram Pl, London E9 6LT
8. Clark’s Outlet Stores
Clark’s is a footwear brand that is famous for quality leather shoes and leather goods. As well as having stores on almost every major high street in the UK, Clark’s also has a selection of London outlets. The stores offer up to 30% off RRP which is excellent, especially if you are buying expensive shoes for your kids!
The outlet stores are located in Woolwich and London Designer Outlet Wembley (mentioned earlier in this article). If you’re nearby to these areas it’s definitely worth visiting, and if not, they also have an outlet website.
📍 Ground floor and Basement, 115/117 Powis St, London SE18 6JE
9. Matchesfashion.com Outlets
There are several Matchesfashion.com bricks and mortar outlet stores in London. The outlets showcase a number of emerging menswear and womenswear designers, at discounted prices. The stores are located in Marylebone, Wimbledon and Mayfair but of course, you can also shop online with matchesfashion.com too.
The stores are brilliant to visit and browse through, with stunning installations. Past installations have included a bespoke Prada display.
You’ll find a whole host of British and European designer labels at a snip of the RRP. If you’re looking for cheap designer clothes, check out the matchesfashion.com stores.
📍 5 Carlos Pl, London W1K 3AP
10. TK Maxx
TK Maxx isn’t a designer outlet as such, however it is a great place to shop to get discounted designer goods. There are many TK Maxx stores in London, both on Oxford Street and further into the suburbs of London. Whether it’s clothing, skincare, or hand bags, TK Maxx has got it all.
The dedicated designer label collection is called Gold Label. Look out for the Gold Label section in TK Maxx to find the best designer items. Items are tagged with black and gold labels. Non high end designer labels such as Ralph Lauren, Ted Baker and Massimo Dutti can be found in the main section of the store, so if you’re looking for quality high street pieces, you’ll also find them here at a heavily discounted rate.
My past Gold Label finds have included Alexa Chung, Bottega Veneta, and Chloe, among others. Not ready to brave the shops? TK Maxx also have a website which is updated every day with new designer bargains.
📍 203-207 Oxford St, London W1D 2LE (flagship store)
One for the serious bargain hunters. Again, Choice is not a designer outlet as such, but the stores do sell a whole host of brands at discounted prices of up to 70% off. Usually the stock at Choice is end-of-the-line or end of season product that can’t be shifted in stores.
There are several Choice shops throughout London such as Golders Green, Wood Green, Ealing and Walthamstow. You’ll find a mixture of high-end high street brands and designer brands. Shoppers have been known to find Canada Goose, Polo Ralph Lauren, Stone Island, Armani Jeans, Michael Kors, DKNY, Marc Jacobs and many more.
The stock is ever changing, so if you live or work close to a Choice store- drop by a little more often to see what you might find!
📍 72-74 Golders Green Rd, London NW11 8EL (Golders Green branch)
12. The Galleria Outlet Centre
Head to Hatfield in the London commuter belt to visit The Galleria Outlet Centre. It’s less than an hour from Farringdon, central London, so not out of the realms of possibility for a bargain hunting shopping trip.
At The Galleria Outlet Centre you’ll find brands such as GANT, M&S, GAP, Clarks, Le Creuset and many more. There’s also a wide choice of cafes & restaurants, a nine screen cinema and a giant indoor adventure for the kids. You can find a full list of the shops on offer here.
Many of the shops are similar to those on offer at ICON at the O2, and London Designer Outlet Wembley, so this might influence your decision on whether to make the trip. A few outlet stores that they do have that you won’t find at the O2 or Wembley are JD Sports, Le Creuset and Regatta.
📍 Comet Way, Hatfield AL10 0YB
13. Bicester Village
Bicester Village (pronounced as “Bister” Village), is the original outlet village in the UK, having opened in 1995, and is famous for the designer bargains available there. At Bicester Village there is an outlet store for almost every desirable designer brand that you can think of. In fact, there are over 150 luxury outlet stores.
Outlet brands include Acne Studios, BA&SH, Balmain, Barbour, Bottega Veneta, Celine, Chloe, Coach, Christian Louboutin, Dior, D&G, Kate Spade, Lulu Lemon, Manolo Blahnik, Mulberry, Prada, Rolex and many, many more. Check out the list of stores on their website.
Bicester Village is definitely a day trip out of London due to the travel time, although trains are frequent from London Marylebone, and the train is direct. The train takes around 57 minutes from London Marylebone. If you love high end designer brands? It’s worth the visit.
📍 50 Pingle Dr, Bicester OX26 6WD
14. Braintree Village
Another outlet that’s more of a day trip from London, is Braintree Village, located in the heart of Essex. This outlet village has over 75 brands on offer, at up to 60% off the RRP. Again, there’s a few brands at this outlet village that you’d find at the ICON at the O2 or Wembley outlets, however there are many which are not catered for in the central and Greater London areas.
Brands at Braintree Village include Armani, Barbour, French Connection, Hackett, Havaianas, Kate Spade, Kurt Geiger, Le Creuset, Nike, The North Face, Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Under Armour, Vans and White Stuff.
To get to Braintree Village from central London it will take you just over an hour from Liverpool Street Station, East London. If you’re an East Londoner, it may certainly be worth the trip!
📍 Chapel Hill, Braintree CM77 8YH
15. McArthurGlen Outlet
Another commuter belt London designer outlet option is McArthurGlen in Ashford. There are several McArtherGlen Outlets in the UK, including Cheshire Oaks in the North West. Personally, I’ve had some brilliant bargains at McArthurGlen including current season Birkenstocks for less than £50!
At the Ashford branch you’ll find brands such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Barbour, Carhartt, Cath Kidston, Coach, Dr Martens, Fred Perry, Ghost, Lacoste, Maje, Sandro, Ugg and Russell & Bromley. To see the full list of stores, head to their website.
📍 Kimberley Way, Ashford TN24 0SD
Home and Furniture Outlets
16. Lofty’s Furniture Outlet
As well as designer clothing outlets, London is also home to some designer furniture and home furnishings outlets too! Our favourite is Lofty’s Furniture, based in Bow, East London. Lofty’s sell luxury furniture from the high street and online companies (MADE, Swoon Editions, and John Lewis), at affordable prices.
Their stock comes from returns, cancelled orders, overruns and end of range products. Lofty’s keep their social media pages constantly updated, with new stock coming into the store pretty much every day. Check out their Instagram and Facebook page to see what’s new
📍 Unit D, 429 / 431 Wick Ln, Bow, London E3 2JG
Does London have outlet stores?
Yes! London has many outlet stores, with extensive outlet villages too in Wembley and at the O2 arena. If you’d rather go to an independent store, there are also independent designer outlets, and dedicated outlet stores for brands such as Burberry and Paul Smith.
Is Bicester Village worth it?
If you are looking for the most extensive outlet village in the UK, Bicester Village is the best choice for you. There are over 150 luxury brands ranged at the outlet village so if you are looking for something particular, it’s most likely that you will find it here.
Does UK have outlet malls?
The UK does have extensive outlet malls. Bicester Village is the most well known outlet village and was established in 1995. McArthurGlen is a chain of outlet villages throughout the UK, with several locations across the country. You’ll also find extensive outlets in London and the surrounding areas.
