We trekked a fair distance along busy Oxford Street and popped into a few shops and actually bought some things. All those red double-decker busses left no doubt that we were in busy London!

Students are away. The colleges are quiet but will need to pay for entry. Most of them are open from 2pm onwards. The streets are scenic along Broad St. And lots of shopping in Queen St.

It was really crowded along the oxford street but you can find a lot of latest fashions and trends over here. If you would like to get postcards as souvenirs, there is a shop here called Plaza that sells beautiful postcards at 13 for 1 pound. Other than that the street houses really a great number of shops in really... More

Oxford Street is a good place to go if you like shopping at some of the main retailers and if you like the typical tourist gifts but don't be fooled by it's commercialism! Alot of it is fairly expensive and it is in the most part too crowded to move! Lovely place but can be hard work!

With the honorable exception of Selfridges (and no doubt a few others) most of the interest should be in the grand buildings that line this famous road that once led from central London via Tyburn (now Marble Arch) on its long route to Oxford. It is well worth a stroll but you need great patience because of slow and inattentive... More

Although I like shopping I find oxford street far too busy and crowded. The shops are all packed solid so you can't look round properly. I prefer to do my shopping at home and see the rest of what London has to offer
