Oxford Street is the place to shop when you are in London. Take the tube and walk up and down the street to see all the shops and stores that you've read about. The Liberty store is a beautiful arts and crafts building and looks just like it did over 100 years ago. Harrods is also on Oxford as well... More

Going to Oxfort Street was only and OK experience last time, and now, on my second trip, I really know the shops in there are not the ones I am searching for as a tourist.

There lots and lots of people seeking how to update their wardrobe with new fashionable coat, suit, whatever. I even read in newspaper london's transport authority will consider up to the end of this year possibility to make street pedestrianised. According to the campaign’s research, footfall would increase from 100,000 to 200,000 people a day, allowing Oxford Street to remain... More

Oxford Street is a fantastic place to shop, crowded! Is what I can say, it’s a business street with a lot of stores and different brands, from the Selfridge to the Primark. In this street you can spend half an hour or … an all week!!! For me the first option is enough but if you like to shopping it’s... More

Very crowded at virtually all times and the shops its supposed to be famous for are nothing special - either tacky souvenir shops or chain stores you get anywhere. Why bother?

There were even shops inside of shops. I always go into Topshop for my fix of Lola's cupcakes. Or if I want to get my hair cut. London is a weird place. The street is always packed with people though so keep your phones on you in case you get separated in the crowd. In the street or in the... More

This is a very importante street full of restaurants, shops and a variety of hotels and hostels as well. People go there in general for shoping, however, as it is a very central area I consider the best place to stay in London. For hotel or hostel (young people find hostels out there) accomodation this is the best area to... More

The crowd at Oxford Street is just crazy. We really had a difficult time to walk with our son in his stroller. We didn't go to any shops because everything was really crowded. If you are not planning to shop for your entire life then I don't see the reason of walking along with a million other people. Walk the... More
