Purchase rum on Snday

Quick question - we are landing on a Sunday and I would like to purchase a bottle of rum to keep on hand at our apartment in London. Can I purchase liquor on a Sunday? Here in Texas, only beer and wine can be purchased on Sundays so I thought I would ask ahead of time.

Yes, you can purchase it from any supermarket. They are open for limited hours on Sunday, usually 10.00am to 4pm.

No problem. Larger supermarkets open until 4pm on a Sunday, small grocery shops will be open later. No restrictions on what you can buy.

If you look under 30, take your passport with you to the shop. Legal age is 18 but some shops are hypersensitive

You might also be able yo buy some on arrival at the airport in the duty free arrivals section you pass through right after customs, or on board your plane.
