SHOPPING: 11 days of holiday in sunny April - lots of bargain shopping opportunities

We have been in the very privileged position in the UK over the past couple of weeks that due to the Easter, May & Royal Wedding Bank Holidays we were able to get 11 days straight holiday off work by only booking 3 days annual leave. I've been one of the lucky ones who booked in nice and early and I have to say it has been absolute bliss. There has also been a lot of bargain shopping opportunities so I thought I would share with you my finds...
