Oxford Street is the place you want to go if you want to go shopping. Also go visit it especially around christmas time. Its magical looking and makes you get into the christmas spirit.

Great Shopping. All major brands ie Zara, Evans, Top Shop, Boots, Super Drugs, Monsoon, Russel n Bromley all on one street. Despite weather being cold - convenient n easy to shop n easy access to Taxis. Marks n Spencer n Selfridges had great stuff too. Overall Christmas Aura made it great to shop too

We caught the underground and walked up one side and back the other. The shops!!!! The quaint alleyways which open onto courtyards full of more shops and in one case, many cafés. Being pre-Christmas the decorations are like something out of a storybook! Especially Selfridges!!!! Even if you're not into shopping this truly is a must do in London !!!!!

The lights which are pure white spheres of different sizes gave the impression of a street seen through a snowstorm. All the large stores had their own decorations and overall it was quite an experience

This is a great place for shopping. It does get very busy so can take a while to walk from one end to the other. It's lovely at christmas when it's all light up at night. easy to get to via tube.

just window shopping, as was the case for me last December. The area was lit up with the most fabulous lights. Especially fun was Selfridges window displays. And inside the iconic department store (made famous for Americans by the show of the same name) was a fantastic magic show near the children's department. Wandered around the whole area before it...

Best to go early in the morning so that you 'grow' with the crowds. Selfridges is an exceptional department store selling just about everything. Start off in the basement and work your way up...if you are still in that end of Oxford street when it's time for lunch you might like to try Londons' best hot salt beef sandwich bar... More

Took my 3 year old boy too London for the day and couldn't leave without seeing the Christmas lights. It had been a long day so I'd been concerned he wouldn't have the enthusiasm for it but as soon as we entered Oxford Street he was the one pointing things out to me and running from window to window to...

I can't say that I am a big fan of shopping, but everyone should take a walk down Oxford Street. To me it is nice during the day, but it seems nicer at night. Selfridges, John Lewis and some smaller shops are worth checking out. TIP: If you need a quick bite or a restroom, head to the Marks &... More

We did all the usual shopping but went to see the christmas lights which are great, go check out HMV, they have artifical snow blowing off their roof :) Its can be hectic so use your good walking shoes and take something to drink whilst on route.
