I can't say that I am a big fan of shopping, but everyone should take a walk down Oxford Street. To me it is nice during the day, but it seems nicer at night. Selfridges, John Lewis and some smaller shops are worth checking out. TIP: If you need a quick bite or a restroom, head to the Marks &... More

Very large range of shops, something for everyone. Many flagship stores also located in this street. Can get very busy. Prices in mainstream shops standard, some of the touristy shops overpriced.

if you want to visit London like a Londoner, then avoid Oxford Street. London is expensive and you will find hundreds of tourist packed onto the pavements. If you really want to shop just head to Westfield in Stratford!

You can spend several days wandering the shops of Oxford & Regent Streets from the big department stores like Selfridges to the small specialty fashion places - this is world class shopping at its best. There are dozens of restaurants but for a quick snack try the basement food floor at Marks & Spencer or the food court at Selfridges... More

Oxford Street is one of the great features of London which is usually lively and packed with the quality stores on both sides. The big stores of Selfridges, M & S, etc. are on this over-active street. The street can be accessed at the end of the Marble Arch, or at its middle from Regent Street or at the other... More

Well, I suppose everyone should shop here once, but apart from larger shops of the same high street brands and the occasional one-off, there are better, more interesting places to visit. But, enjoy it and I would recommend you go after dark, it looks more appealing.
