A must-visit vintage clothes store. Few London stores can compare for the range of second hand clothes, causing Time Out to call it a 'London rite of passage'.
Vintage clothing megastore & decent bus stop coffee deals (filter coffee and pastry for a quick refuel).
For those that share my passion for vintage and 2nd hand things, this is one of the iconic commercial chains for this, plus, it has a tiny wifi cafe and nice staff.
