Oxford Street is really a shopper's paradise! Everything you want and more! My favourite time to visit is early Saturday morning before it get's really busy.

It is the world famous shopping street and there are a lot of great shopping stores. However, it is very crowded even more than expected; also a lot of baggers and pocket-pickers. You need to be careful there.

The shops start close to Marble Arch and just seems never to end as you walk up this street. The masses of people there at any one time is mind boggling. From cheap to expensive. Small trinkets to huge commodities. You will find what you want somewhere on this street.

Oxford Street is one of the main, busiest shopping streets in London and is home to a good few hundred shops, including flagship stores of House of Fraser, John Lewis and many other companies. Oxford Street is a nice place to go in London, if you do like big shops like this, which are typically on the pricy side, and... More

Spent the day looking at ancient finds and studying medieval architecture? Take the day to wind in and out of the many fabulous shops on Oxford Street! Need a London gift to take home that's a little more useful than a nodding stuffed corgi? You might find that perfect pashmina or fun bracelet here.

Keep your bags closed and your pockets too and you'll enjoy Oxford street; unless you're in a hurry to go from one end to the other in which case I'd advise a parallel street. Need to go there closer to Christmas to view all the big stores (Selfridges, John Lewis ...) beautiful window dressings.

You could find almost anything you want in Londond's most glamorous street with shops and well known department stores wall to wall. Oxford street is also served by three four underground stations with reserved bus and taxi lane which makes it very accessable to travellers from any where in London. Oxford street has also many coffee shops, restaurants, and bars.

We enjoyed strolling along Oxford Street and hitting a few shops. There is so much available along the road. We really enjoyed the Disney Store -- which is a must do for any Disney lover! Bring a camera for some fun displays. Merchandise is much like any Disney Store, although there is London specific merchandise. We spent several hours in... More

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.
