If you like crowds, cheap tourist stalls and shops you can find anywhere else in the world, then this is the place for you. Oxford Street seems a shadow of its former self. For REAL window shopping and much lovelier buildings, go to Regent Street instead.

It's great! Everything you could possibly need is on there. There isn't a huge selection of restaurants though and it would be better if there were signs that said "selfridges this way" or something. But there's a real buzz, with buskers and performers! If you visit at Christmas time you will be blown away, it really is special

Forget the malls Oxford Street is way way better. Selfridges, John Lewis, House of Fraser, Debenhams and too many more to mention are all here within walking distance of one another. What is important is to TIME and PLAN your visit to avoid the crush, because my, it can get darned packed. Get it and out early and you'll have... More

Whatever you want you will find it in this district. The mid-day crowds are horrific. Easy to get there and back via the Underground.

Anyone who visited London will not want to give a miss of this place, a shopping haven where you can grab anything you want here. One can easily spend a whole day here walking around one after another of the big departmental stores, well known boutiques, high street stores are all located in the area, selling from fashion to handbags...

Great street for shopaholics like myself! Large variety of shops to get lost in for hours. Plenty of bargains to be found too.

The difference is on a friday or saturday night you might see people getting really drunk. I would say it is not my cup of tea but if you want to shop i guess you should come here, but you'll get tired very fast. The traffic is also pretty bad.

I have visited Oxford Street in London in the run-up to Christmas every year for the past decade and it's always a great day out; you'll find all the most famous shopping names in the UK (except for Hamleys in Regent Street and Harrods in Knightsbridge but you can fit them into the same day easily too). The Christmas lights... More
