Oxford street is a beautiful areasof London. The region has lots of beautiful streets and buildings and is perfect for walks, especially at night. Just notice some streets get particularly crowded during summer time, especially at night.

On a freezing cold day, we still enjoyed walking a fair distance down Oxford Street The lights and decorations seem to be the same as those two years ago, but never mind, they are still stunning. Some of the store facades present a breathtaking picture. There were many, many photographers in action! Full marks to the local authority and/or the... More

Luxurious items and not so luxurioius. Both can be found here. Many flag ship stores are here so take it as experience. If you are here when they turn on the xmas lights then take your time and enjoy the show.

Although it can get very busy, it is a good place to shop...lots of variety, mainly of high street brands...but great all on one big street. Along with John Lewis, Selfridges, House of Fraser, there's all the usual suspects along the shopping route. Plenty of refreshments stops on the way to get you through a long shopping day.

Oxford Street is busy and noisy - not one of my favourite streets. Also the Christmas 2015 lights are very boring.

We went to London's Iconic OXFORD STREET...To the branded shopping stores, to the road-side foods outlets - there are HALAL foods on sale, the crowds, the traffics, the cyclists and the motorists..you name it! They are all can be found in this famous street. Imagine if you re among the crowds during the Bargain/Sale periods...must visit! But be extra careful... More

If you love being josstled and bumped and shouted at, presumably this is one of your faviourite streets. If you love shopping it might be an experience you put up with so as to do that activity. As someone who dislikes both of those experiences, I'll stay as far from Oxford St as I can get away with, thanks!

Ok so the shops are great but the crowds aren't!! Fine if you don't mind battling against everyone but not my idea of fun so I probably won't be back.

Visited London with sister and find Oxford Street is a very good spot for shopping where it's assessable by public transport and very convenient as its location is at the centre of London. If you do not wish to use public transport, you can always walk along the street. We like the place very much!

Thank Smilesssss

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
