Burberry Outlet Store
If you don't mind making a detour to Bethnal Green, you can save up to a third on your favorite Burberry classics. A wide selection of women's wear, men's wear and children's wear, as well as British goodies like shortbread are available. After you rummage through classic jackets, blazers, trousers, purses, wallets, and of course, trench coats, you can wander through the markets of this East London neighborhood.
The Outlet is out of town but you can reach the place within 45-50 minutes with tube (and train). The area is not very nice but it is ok, it is a 10 minutes walk from Hackney Central. The outlet has 3-4 rooms with women, men clothes and accessories. The prices are very good compared to the original, for ex. i bought a bag for 150 euro which would normally cost 550 euro. Very good selection for men too. No dressing rooms are available but that is not really a problem. A piece of advice, if you are thinking of buying sth and you are not sure take it in your shopping bag and decide later. Don't wait until you finish screening the whole outlet because half of the things you like won't be there anymore (especially bags and accessories)!
There are a large range of clothing (mens & womens) and accessory items. This is a real/traditional outlet store - the items are either overstocked or discontinued and there are a some clearly marked as "seconds". But, it is all authentic Burberry products. While the selection is broad, the sale racks do not have a wide range of sizes.
Everything is priced well below what you would pay anywhere else for Burberry products! That said, if you don't understand that a Burberry scarf will cost you 150 pounds at the airport duty free shop, then the 60 to 75 pound price may seem expensive. Clothing, bags, and accessories are as much as half but even then they are not what you would call cheap. My wife's $250 purse shocked me until she rolled her eyes and informed me the exact same item was priced well over $500 at the Harrod's.
There are a few racks with "extra discounts" where I found a beautiful sport coat for 100 pounds and an excellent light raincoat for 75 pounds. I'm sure I could have got somewhat similar items at Mens Warehouse in the US on sale for a little less but they would not of been equal to the Burberry products in quality, material, or style.
It is away from central London but can be reached by Train (tube then commuter line) in about 30 min from King's Cross. It a 5 minute walk from the train station and you will need a good map or directions. The neighborhood is lower income but not run down. The building is in the middle of the block on a side street in a plain commercial warehouse. There is only a small sign.
Prices and Selection -
The neighborhood is not that bad and it also doesn't take forever to get to the shop. It is quite a travel but is not the end of the world and it is worth it. The selection was great, especially the clasic raincoats, but also t-shirts handbags and shoes. Prices were reasonable. I was not expecting dirt-cheap and indeed, it was not. Reasonable, I would say. I paid 400 for a raincoat that in retail is sold for 800. I paid 599 for a handbag that normally is sold for 1200. What else would you want? 50% discount seems ok for me.
I don't understand why some wrote here that the staff were not nice. To me they seemed very nice and helpful.
I would recommend anyone visiting London to go try this shop, it is really worth it. I am in London today and guess where will I be going this afternoon :)
I just visited from Perth last week. I found the place great. Heaps of stuff. although it is difficult to get smaller sizes. The girl at the counter was sooo sweet, she asked whether i wanted duty free and when i told her about the hike to get there, she told us where to get a bus and wrote down the bus numbers for us. The store is neat and easy to navigate (especially for a factory outlet). I ended up getting myself a handbag (219 pounds), winter coat (249 pounds), a couple of polos (35 and 19 pounds) and a scarf (35 pounds).
Reading the other reviews, your right dont inspect dirt cheap prices and i recommend doing your homework because when I was there I couldn't remember what prices were back home and so couldn't compare. However a scarf that i paid 35 pounds for in the factor outlet retailed 165 pounds in the city. So definite bargains to be found!
On the downside its far from the city, there are no change rooms, so difficult to see what dresses, trousers, skirts will look like.
Ill definately be going back!!
I found the place quite easilly. I bought loads of stuff,all good quality. The staff were very helpful.I definately want to go back. The only downfall is not being able to try things on. I was there in September 2007 and there was a really good choice.I would have bought more if I could have tried trousers on,there is enough space to make some changing rooms.
Ugly suburb and maybe dangerous! From outside seems like a factory and so it is inside!Easy to find but has not a big variety of items and sizes. Some of them are second choice. Much more cheaper than the boutique but not so cheap as expected. In spite all this i would visit it again, hoping to find new items.
I've been once (it's at the end of my road) and couldn't believe the state of things. Ripped jumpers (for over £100!), nothing but ugly samples that would surely never see a production line, and enormous prices in a tatty factory full of brawling chavs. For these prices, you might as well buy retail and at least get a decent choice and this season's styles. Alternatively hit Ridley Road market in Dalston and pick up some better quality fakes for a fraction of the price...
1st thing I wanted to do when I get out of london is to visit the Burberry Factory outlet since I'm a crazy burberry fan.
For those people who loves burberry or appreciate luxury goods, this is the place for you. And others who expects a dirt-cheap bargain, it's not a good expectation to begin with.
So, do your homework in advance !! so you know what you must have, and what are items you would buy when there's a bargain.Store is huge, and I'm certainly spoilt for choices!! I wished I could bring the entire store back to my country if I'm rich enough.
Goods are typically 30-60% off retail price, although some item has been overprice to begin with, so even with the discount it still doesn't look too attractive unless you really love the design and item.
Perhaps I am lucky, notice several items had 50% further discount on top of mark down prices. Also notice some series whereby when u purchase a 2nd item, the 2nd item which is less or same value as the 1st will be yours at 1/2 price. Great bargain !
Lots of bags although the are from previous season. Based on the previous comments, I suppose they have made very good improvement by indicating some rejected / faulty items, if not mentioned, it's almost like new. Bought a bluebell series handbag for quite a bargain, but realized there isn't a dustbag. :-(.
Planning to go back this thursday to check that out.
Lots of clothing for kids, woman, man, and lots of jackets and boots for sale.
One last surprise when making payment - There's tax rebate for non-EU! So yippee!! I'm certainly going back this week before heading back home.
Hope you gys have fun.
we are surprised with some reviews here. We have been there few times and always worth it, staff was really nice and friendly to us specially a blond guy at mens even that make us spent a lot. Nice guy. Staff at the tills was very nice and polite. No complains. No regrets. I'll def go back there next time in london.
I thought the outlet store would be all messy and you wouldn´t be able to find a thing... So I was mighty surprised when I went in and saw that it wasn´t was I expected! I am definatly going back... I found shoes and bags and clothes for my boyfriend and family! Really good! It is a bit pricy but comparing with what I pay in the stores it is definatly worth it! Can´t believe I´ve just now discovered this one. Allthough its not all the newest trends, but the shoes and bags where alot of classics and the polo shirts etc...
The staff was helpful except for the ones in the till... But other than that... You get what you pay for, so I don´t expect to walk in there and get first class treatment either... =)
