I love going to Oxford Street. Even though it's busy and noisy, you can get so much shopping done and if you missed one shop then there'll be another one! I think there's a nice range of shops. Would go there everyday if I could :)

We'd looked forward to seeing the Christmas lights on Oxford Street and Regent Street but what a disappointment. Regent Street has been taken over as an advertising board for an upcoming film and Oxford Street consisted for white baubles but nothing else.

Depending on what time you go, avoid Saturdays and evenings, if you go on a weekday I guarantee you will spend majority of the day there, especially in topshop (biggest in Europe).

To be honest, Oxford Street is no way as good as it used to be. There are some unique stores on the street (Selfridges) but most of the stores can be found elsewhere, on the high street. I guess, the M&S, BHS etc are big, but not necessarily better. Some of the shops are selling absolute rubbish, gifts of London,... More

A beautiful street to walk along at Christmastime! The lights and decorations are so cheery, and window shopping in this area is a must!

That is what you will find here at this time of the year. Of course there is the shopping too. All kinds of interesting places to eat in the back streets and in some of the large department stores too. There is something here for everyone.

Oxford Street at Christmas is a write off, everywhere is jam packed full of people! Lots of different shops for a variety of budgets, I always stop at the PC World and don't go further as the quality tends to fade away at thay point. As a rule of thumb, the left hand side of Oxford Street is all the... More

Oxford Street is the place to head to if you want all the big traders names within walking distance. However, please start early and wear comfortable shops because there are so many shops to visit.

A must for tourists, The great scale and hustle and bustle of Oxford Street is fantastic. Many many shops both large , small, chain store and independant all served by the underground for effectively getting around. Use an Oyster Card for reduced transport rates and convenience.
