Here’s where you can give your hair and beard some extra attention across the Queen’s capital.

Murdock London
This Victorian-style grooming establishment is a place for gentlemen to relax and socialise; not only with your barber but also other locals who come here for an afternoon of man-pering. When grooming was in its golden age, the relationship you had with your barber was just as important as the relationship you had with your tailor. Murdock have created a space for exactly that, with now six locations across the city; however just a short stroll from Shoreditch High Street you'll find their original salon where the brand’s soul still lies.
