London’s hottest new beauty emporiums
The new one-stop beauty shops for self-care in the capital
Bamford Haybarn, Brompton Cross, 104 Draycott Avenue, London SW3 3AEWe’re already in love with Bamford’s beautiful product line-up and country spa, and now founder Carole Bamford has brought a piece of the Cotswolds to Brompton Cross. She says, 'Our original Haybarn Spa is set within the tranquil greenery of Daylesford’s organic farm, and for me that setting is what makes it so unique. I have always wanted to be able to transport the essence of those natural surroundings to an urban setting, so I am delighted to be finally bringing that vision to life. At Brompton Cross, busy Londoners will be able to retreat to a restorative space, to disconnect from the pace of urban living. Whether it’s to take a meditation class, reset your mind or nourish your body with a holistic treatment, I hope to provide a place to heal, breathe and above all be kind to yourself.' Expect to find a sky lit studio that offers a range of yoga, meditation and sound healing classes, disconnect for 15 minutes and enjoy a complimentary express organic skincare ritual, sit in a marble monolith and sip on an organic infusion, or book in for a specialist spa treatment, all designed to heal and nurture both mind and body. Alternatively, simply browse an edit of ethical clothing, skincare, home ware, bath and body products whilst taking in the beautiful aromas and ambience.
