England, as part of the UK, uses the Pound Sterling not the Euro. London, as a major capital city, has extensive shopping opportunities ranging from designer labels to bargain basement options in the many local markets here. Your Withlocals guide will be able to make sure you can find your way to the best markets and local shopping opportunities if you’re not interested in the big ticket-prices of the famous West End retail outlets. As central London is one of the most expensive property locations in the world, retail prices in the center may be considerably higher than elsewhere in England. Generally, haggling is not an English custom with the solitary exception of antique dealers and perhaps some bric-a-brac stalls on markets. Credit and bank cards of all types are widely accepted. For centuries, England has been a large (in economic terms) trading nation and as a result, it’s possible to find goods and produce from almost anywhere on earth in the typical English city. One downside of this though is that comparatively few things in the 21st century can be said to be distinctly ‘English’ special purchases. VAT (sales tax) will be added to your bill but unlike some other European countries, in England, the quoted ticket price will almost always include that tax.
