I dont find shopping on Oxford street enjoyable.... It's busy and stressful and you get as good shops in big shopping centres now like the centre MK!

Spent an afternoon/evening shopping at Oxford street and there were plenty of awesome shops! My favourite by far was the Disney shop, it was magical!

I read online that this was the busiest street in Europe and the days I visited this street definitely supported that claim. The street was filled with people from every nation and lined with stores of every type. I walked the street with an average tourist budget so I was picky about what stores i visited, but if i would... More

Took my girlfriend here for some shopping. First we walked up the street and did what shopping we wanted, then we walked up and down the streets that run though it, Regents ST, New Bond etc. It was a nice shopping area but is a little overhyped in my opinion. I can go to a primark, disney shop, new look,... More

Whattay lovely!! I loved every bit of my many trips to Oxford Street. We were living in the nearby quaint Marylebone, right behind the Marylebone High street which made it easier to walk to Oxford Street. Mornings are beautiful in London so we used to walk up there and have breakfast on our way in one of the coffee shops... More

She found us a hotel that was ideal for the purpose and allowed us an opportunity to explore, enjoy and imbibe the pleasures and... More

Went to Oxford Street around christmas time, turned out to be a superb choice. It was all lit up with xmas lights and the busy shopper made it have a great feel about the place. Lots of great shops on offer, some expensive but some real bargains to be had!!

Buy or browse, either is a reason to come to Oxford Street. Stores are a blend of those you'd see anywhere (H&M, Nike) and the very British (Selfridges, John Lewis), with price points for the extreme ends of any wallet. Food options are best in the cafes located in the big stores. I had crepes for lunch in the cafe... More
