The Apple Store
With locations in Covent Garden, Westfield Stratford City and the flagship on Regent Street, the Apple Store is an essential destination store for, oh, let’s say 99% of the population. Offering a retail experience somewhere between an airy showroom and a public forum, products are set out on simple blonde wood benches for leisurely perusal, while friendly store assistants dash about cheerfully to answer every beck and call. You’re unlikely to get this at your local PC World.
Besides the store’s striking design and layout, which references Apple’s cool, simple and clean design cornerstones, the store feels incredibly open and is always teeming with customers tinkering with the latest Apple products. Everything your heart desires is here, from MacBook Airs to the latest iterations of the iPad and iPhone and jaw-dropping Apple Cinema HD display units. Up the grand staircase and you’ll find the “Genius Bar”, offering technical support and advice for all Apple products. At 3 storeys, the Covent Garden flagship is the largest in the world.
Other locations are located at both Westfield shopping centres in Stratford City and White City, as well as a store on 235 Regent Street, near Oxford Circus tube.
Opening hours: 09:00 - 21:00 every day except Sunday, which is 12:00 - 18:00.
