Richard leaves Oxford Street and the big shopping areas to find some interesting specialist shops and markets. We hear from a photographer who has his own market stall, and London shoppers tell us what they like.

6 years ago, my father went to London but I can't remember if he bought something from these shops or not.

I like departmental store because I can find many things in one place and they are very affordable but in big store I can find things I love wearing and things I love and also I can find things which are a lil more expensive than usual but affordable for me.

I prefer big department stores because it feels like I'm in some big town eg. New York,Amsterdam...

I usually go shopping in big department stores but it isn`t very important. The most important thing is that you buy quality things and things you like. You can buy them wherever.
