Things to do in Westbourne Grove
The first Oxfam store to be redesigned by Jane Shepherdson (formerly of Topshop), this Westbourne Grove boutique opened in 2008, successfully transforming the retail division of the global aid agency.
Black glass-beaded walls set off sumptuous, anything-but-old-fashioned jewels (tanzanite, blue tourmaline).
This tea emporium in Covent Garden Piazza carries more than 120 teas and herbal infusions from around the world. Teas come in an array of black, green, white, Oolong, Jasmine, and Rooibos types: blended, single-estate, and/or flavored.
