Wow, this is a magnificent street. Despite being very busy all year round, it was well lit and decorated throughout the Christmas season. The shop windows are always spik and span and pleasant to see. The shops range from expensive designer shops, to shops with reasonably priced items to shops with sales and good bargains. It was a pleasant day... More

Just in the direction from the west, that is, from the Marble Arch at the northeast corner of Hyde Park to the east end of London, i.e. to the Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road, stretches so famous road, the very renown Oxford Street. I strolled along the way and couldn't take my eyes off so great variety of... More

Honestly this street if you were to go into every shop would take more than a day to go along! It's so long yet has so much variety that it's still interesting whether it be similar to the shops you have at home or ones you've never heard of! You can get there by the tube and start from 'Oxford... More

I just love the wide streets and all the shops that are available around Oxford Street. It has good variety including big department stores like Selfridges and M&S. Try to avoid it during the weekend, and after working hours as it is total madness, it is totally crowded and one can hardly walk. If you are looking for a more... More

I went there on tuesday, and it was crowded more than streets I am used to during weekends. Anyway I think its shopping heaven. All you need is unlimited card, because you really find everything there. I think this is Londons' must do for every shopaholic.

I walked around Oxford Street during a Layover in London, its a great place to just get a feel of busy London if you have 5-6 hours to spare. You can take the subway right from Heathrow Airport and walk around for an hour or two and get back in time for your next flight.

I live in London and have come to dread going to Oxford Street, unless I am in a shopping mood. At all hours and all days it's filled with teeming crowds of locals and tourists, and once 6pm and the weekends roll along you'll find it impossible to move without pushing and shoving. I often emerge irritated and harbouring a... More

I think I counted 4 river islands 3 Nexts and several new looks.. has to be a 2 mile long street of shops.. and the fabulous Selfridges happens to sit one end of it. If you do the Oxford st experience you will need to either take plenty of cash/ have a lot of will power or bash the credit... More
