Five days before Christmas we felt like we walked all over London to go via Regent Street to get to Oxford Street to see the iconic Christmas Lights. I found the Oxford Street lights much prettier than those in RS so we could have started by tubing to Marble Arch and just walking down OS. The street lights were complimented... More

During the festive season, a walk down Oxford Street to marvel at the windows and Christmas lights should be high on everyone's must do list. The big name stores of Selfridges and John Lewis lead the way with the most spectacular displays. This year there was even fake snow falling from the sky. The best section is the western half...

Nothing special about the street but the crowded shops with loud music (H&M) and UV rich light, cold winter outside walk to full restaurants. Some stores have an aggressive marketing strategy (nearby Hamleys). Pay attention that prices, reductions, quality (M&S, etc.) are the same as in London much more enjoyable shopping centers.

Love the shopping on Oxford, Baker and Regent streets. One of my favorite stores Zara is located here. I prefer to shop on these streets rather than at a mall. Lovely buildings and stores.

You've got to love the hustle and bustle of this street. The shops go on for ever and there is something for everyone here. From big department stores to smaller chain stores it's a must see. It's energetic and fun! Tube stops: Tottenham, bond, Oxford circus, or marble arch

This large (and extensive!) Shopping street is hard to avoid, regardless of the reason you are visiting the city. As with Regent Street as the street is full of shops, department stores, cafes, restaurants and small boutiques - but maybe a bit more mixed quality and not as luxury-oriented. Intense traffic and a lot of people are also characteristic of... More

I used to live just off Oxford Street so know it well. There are a few good shops, such as Selfridges, John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, etc, but so many of the shops are now really awful, tourist trap, and very shoddy. The area west of Oxford Circus is better for shopping than the area east.The street is always crowded,... More

Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to shop until you drop! Its a shame they dont have a sign for what shops are where as this would make a difference to which way to start shopping first. If you can get there around 10am its not so busy.
