Retail Week’s definitive selection of the best shops in the world, by design.

Click here to see the list in full.

Sit down and take a look at retail worldwide – which shops are the best of the best?

If you were to compile a global top 10, what would the candidates be? And which would make the final list?

It’s a task that may not be as divisive as Brexit or the recent US election, but it will certainly polarise opinion.

And that’s why our selection is a list, rather than a ranking. The stores that have made it this far are all good and cover a broad range of sectors.

Every entry on this list is worth a visit, or even a detour, if you happen to be anywhere near them, as they all represent the best that’s out there.
