Whilst the Dolphin Shopping Arcade offers convenience, enabling residents to buy the essentials without leaving the Square
The central location and handy public transport connections place London’s finest shops on your doorstep.
So whether you prefer Oxford Street or Bond Street, High Street Kensington or Knightsbridge, South Molton Street or the King’s Road, you’re only a short journey away. Locally, both Pimlico and Victoria boast a broad variety of shops within walking distance including several supermarkets, department stores, fashion outlets, bookshops, and a multitude of fine arts and antiques dealers.
Cardinal Place, a relatively new shopping development in Victoria, offers a host of leading high street names including Marks & Spencer, Zara, Topshop, Monsoon, Jones, Hobbs, Accessorize, Specsavers, Goldsmiths, L’Occitane, Molton Brown and Thornton’s. In nearby Victoria Street you’ll find even more high street names and a range of independent retailers including newsagents, florists, jewellers, dry cleaners, travel agents etc. There are also plenty of ATM cash machines, and several high street bank and building society branches.
In Sloane Square, only a short journey from Dolphin Square, you will find an exceptional range of designer clothing boutiques including names such as Chloe, Armani, Ben De Lisi, Patrick Cox, Oliver Sweeney, Agnes B, Lulu Guinness and Phillip Treacy, not to mention luxury brands such as Tiffany & Co. and Cartier. The historic Peter Jones department store is also worth a visit. For over a century, Peter Jones has been described as the ‘local corner shop’ of Chelsea, and that spirit remains to this day; now part of the John Lewis Partnership, it continues to exude a character of its own. The Kings Road which begins at the south end of Sloane Square is lined with shops, boutiques and cafes, and is perfect for people watching. Duke of York Square is one of London’s newest and smartest shopping developments. The old army barracks have been transformed into a very stylish shopping area featuring such names as Joseph, All Saints, Agnes B, LK Bennett and Ted Baker. There is something of a café culture on the square, with Patisserie Valerie, Manicomio and Fratelli all providing the perfect opportunity to people watch, whilst in winter there is an ice rink.
Food lovers will be delighted to hear that there is a Farmers’ Market every Saturday morning at Orange Square, on the corner of Pimlico Road and Ebury Street. Regarded by many as one of London’s finest Farmers’ Markets, Pimlico Road brings together some of the UK’s finest purveyors of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat, and a broad range of artisan produced goods including conserves, biscuits, bread, cakes, juices and pies. Pimlico Green is well known for its abundance of antique shops and fine art dealers. It is also home to Daylesford Organic, offering fresh, organic, seasonal and local food including fruit, vegetables, award-winning handmade cheeses, organic baked goods, fresh meat from their organic estate and much more.
