Great atmosphere here! Don't understand why people complain about it being busy, what do you expect? All part of the London experience!

I don't enjoy shopping, but I nevertheless think that a visit to Oxford Street is a must. Hundreds of people from all over the world stride up and down the sidewalk, going from store to store. The Oxford Street experience is not to be missed

Great place for clothes, I can only last 30 mins before running away as its so crowded and people behave like they are on safari! If you go with a partner, bring a collapsible stool, especially if they like some of the bigger stores as they don't have seating areas!!!

Lots of shops to browse. Spent a fortune in Zara and Topshop. Weather was gorgeous. Need comfy shoes when on oxford street as it is so long and you want to see all the shops. Could do with opening more fitting rooms tho as spent ages in the queue,

I visited Oxford Street with my mother and it was really worth it! Although I would not advice taking anyone who doesn't like shopping because this street seems to be endless and it gets really crowded at times.

Oxford Street is a shoppers dream most chains have a flagship store in this street and although it gets extremely busy you can enjoy window shopping up and down this thoroughfare there are plenty of eating places in the side streets

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
