9: Liberty department store on Great Marlborough Street

Liberty storeOnto Regent Street, just after the first bus-stop, look down the first turning on the left to see the Liberty department store with its famous mock-Tudor frontage. (The store is actually only the same age as the other buildings on Regent Street). The fake Tudor styling runs throughout the store, giving an old-world atmosphere. There are creaky stairs but no escalators. Liberty became famous as a specialist retailer of Art Nouveau fabrics. The store is decidedly up-market and it has some of the most artistic window displays in London.
