As a brand, John Lewis is universally loved in Britain. Think of it as an accessible, everyman’s Harrods and you won’t be far off – there aren’t many departments that John Lewis don’t do superbly, from clothing to computers and kitchenware and its simple, unflashy style has garnered it many fans.
The stores are clearly and concisely laid out, at odds with the chaos of similar competitors like Debenhams and House of Fraser, and service is confident, knowing and courteous. Selections are all high-quality and affordable, if a little middle England, and comparisons to Macy’s in the US are not without justification. You’re not going to find edgy fashion collections here, but rather excellent, beautiful and reliable accessories. As a brand, it knows what it is and does it very well.
A Waitrose Foodhall is attached in the Marylebone branch offering high quality and fairly priced (not to mention impeccably sourced and ethically produced) food.
Opening hours: Monday - Wednesday, Friday & Saturday: 09:30 - 20:00, Thursday 09:30 - 21:00, Sunday: 12:00 - 1800.
Nearest Tube: Bond Street or Oxford Circus.
