Having built solidly since November, figures released today show November footfall in London’s West End was up 5.5 per cent year-on-year.
This means the area is consistently outperforming high streets and shopping centres nationally, which saw an average footfall rise of 0.2 per cent, according to Springboard’s UK High Street Index.
Retailers across London’s West End also reported a rise in sales for November, up 2.3 per cent on the same month last year, above national sales which were up 0.4 per cent, according to the BRC UK Retail Sales Monitor.
