Any One Direction flagship Shop in London ?

I'll be visiting London this December with my 2 teenagers (12 & 16 yrs old).

They are interested to know if there are any One Direction flagship store in London please ?

Thank you in advance for any advice you could offer.

According to our friend Google, there have been 1D Pop Up stores but nothing permanent dedicated to 1D merchandise. Claire's Accessories has a selection of 1D things though. As with most things, best bet is to purchase online, lots of stuff available there.

Thanks MChiddy! I'm just amazed that this British boy band does not have a store in their home country but there's one in NYC !

My kids were looking fwd to browsing through the merchandise personally in a store instead of the intangible online shopping.

Well I guess that's not possible in LDN for the moment :(

Take them to Harrods, especially the food hall. That will keep them amazed. But be sure to emphasise no money is to be spent ;-)

I'm not sure a food hall compares to One Direction when you're a teenager ;)

Thanks to MChiddy and suebovington for your generous advices.

With London being such a wonderful place to be in, especial during Xmas season, I'm sure there will be enough activities to keep them excited, apart from the 1D store. At least we still have ice skating and Madame Tussauds to keep the fun level up :)

In what planet you people live? Teen girls don't bother for any other thing but their idols…Madame Toussaud's is amazing, for us, grown ups….If they don't go to 1D store, the rest of your trip will be over

It's a good job the trip was six months ago and the teenagers probably have a new band du jour by now then....

Not sure I agree that Madame Tussauds is "amazing".....

Surely in the London Madam Tussauds, there would be One Direction made of wax they can sit next too. My daughter got a million photos of their wax figures at the one here in Sydney last year.
