About Us

Take a walk down the UK High Street online with UKDIRECT. Some might remember the days when walking the High Street was your only choice. Of course in today's connected global world, more people than ever shop online and from overseas countries as well as within the UK. But how do you find interesting stores that match your preferences and price points, and who has sales? It's not always easy to find these with popular search engines as you can end up with very mixed results.

With so many choices, we wanted to make it easier and more convenient to find and compare UK online stores with homeware, gifts, clothes, shoes and accessories that suit your style and budget, as well as specialist food and drink choices, health, beauty and lifestyle options. Not to forget larger items for the house or garden for those shopping online in the UK.

We created this shopping guide dedicated to promoting the online stores from the UK High St, independent UK brands and retailers that offer local and international shipping. Hence we made online shopping a whole lot more interesting and centralised – find where to shop by category and take a peek at the styles and compare prices (available from selected stores).

All UK online stores listed here are reputable registered businesses in the UK. Buy British quality products backed up by top rate customer service.

International shipping rates from UK are generally very competitive and often free for those shopping in the UK, over a certain amount spent. Check out each store’s online profile for a quick guide to the shipping costs to your location. We have also conveniently summarised Free Shipping Deals to help customers identify where they can save on delivery fees, wherever you are in the world.

You can quickly see a list of Store Profiles [A-Z]  to find a store by name. For a better shopping experience we recommend you shop at our UK online stores for what you want by Category (or Department). Our tools help you make informed decisions before choosing to securely shop direct at a store of your choice.

We hope you enjoy using UKDIRECT and it helps you to get what you want for less from the UK high St online. If you have any feedback, or ideas on how we could improve our site, we'd love to hear from you. Simply contact us by email info[@]ukdirect.net
