Please note that face coverings must be worn in shops in the UK.

Sainsbury's (5-minute walk from Goldsmiths)

What we call big Sainsbury's is right next to Goldsmiths. It’s a large supermarket/hypermarket selling groceries. As well as all the food you’ll need, it has toiletries, household goods and clothes.

TK Maxx (5-minute walk)

TK Maxx is a large clothing store that’s also good for kitchenware. It’s a bit like an outlet store with last season’s clothes at discount prices.

Lewisham Shopping Centre and Market (10-minute bus ride)

Lewisham Shopping Centre has more than 65 shops selling UK and international products of every description. You’ll find shops like Poundstretcher and Flying Tiger, which sell lots of useful items like stationary at cheap prices.

Next to the Centre is a daily market selling food, clothing and household goods.

International food stores and markets

There are hundreds of local independent shops around Goldsmiths selling food and produce from around the world.
