The World Wide Web has revolutionized the way that many of us Brits do business in the 21st century. Not only has it streamlined the entire shopping process and made it much simpler and quicker to find exactly what you need, but many times you can find your merchandise for much cheaper than the price you would pay for it in a shop. But what exactly are some of the best things to buy online — and how can you make the most of your online spending?
Clothes — Let’s face it; everyone likes to look good, and in fact many of us have the desire to wear high-end, designer clothes in an effort to boost our appearance. In the past however, you’d have to find all of your clothing in a retail shop somewhere and then hope that they have it in your size and favourite colour, and then try it on in front of some size 8 stick insect — and that’s just the staff! Thanks to the World Wide Web, however, you can shop and compare clothing at literally thousands of different websites that operate from all over the world, so you’re sure to find the exact garment you are looking for.
Music — Perhaps more than anything else the internet has changed the way we listen to and obtain music. There are many websites online today that offer up tens of thousands of LEGAL song downloads, as well as full album downloads from all of your favourite artists from all around the globe. So go ahead — plug in your headphones and start downloading all of your favourite music from the internet today.
Theatre Tickets — London theatre tickets might seem to be astronomical prices, but they can actually be much more affordable than you think, and there is always a great show to be had in the West End — the world’s theatrical proving ground. Whether you’re looking for a night out with the entire family or a relaxing evening by yourself or with your date, London theatre tickets might just be the best thing to buy online.
Gigs — Of course there are many other London shows besides plays and musicals. London’s 02 Arena showcases some of the hottest and most popular musical acts today, and some even play shows that are exclusive to the arena itself. And thanks to the internet you can find cheap tickets for all of these London shows and more; as long as you know just when and where to look for them.
Hotels — If you’ve already organised your tickets, you’ll probably need a hotel room to stay in during your visit. Thankfully, the internet can offer the best deals on hotel rooms too. Use an online aggregate site and you can compare prices and amenities from one place to another, and you’ll even be shown pictures of what your hotel rooms looks like! Never before has shopping for a hotel been this easy.
