Travel to London’s Best Retro Spots

Cheap airfare to London from Fitzrovia to Covent Garden, London is embracing its charming—and sometimes cheeky—past. Every era, from the roaring ‘20s to the swinging ‘60s, is represented, with new takes on old-fashioned locales: chip and sweets shops, hidden Prohibition-style hangouts, even ballrooms. But rather than flaunt themselves as fusty Churchillian relics, these new spots are drawing stylish Bright Young Things who can’t get enough of the city’s collective nostalgia trip. They’re celebrating inspired design, tastes, and bygone lifestyles with zeal.

At the forefront of London’s retro renaissance: sugar. Behind a shiny strawberry-red façade in Covent Garden, British confectionary is experiencing a resurgence at Hope and Greenwood, a sweet 1950s-style candy store named after its sugar-loving owners. Glass jars and cut-crystal candy that grandma would love brim with classic and all-but-disappeared “pick and mix“ English candies—Minty Humbugs, Raspberry Ruffles, and Traffic Light Lollies. It’s the kind of place that will even inspire adults on a strict diet to indulge in sweets (and sweet thoughts) of yesteryear.
