This is definitely a shoppers paradise but it is so very crowded, we felt like we were always being pushed and shoved. We made the mistake of going into one of the large discount retailers there and it was so crazy that many things had ended up on the floor as a result of what looked to be a shopping... More

Big department stores, small boutiques of all types, priced from the expensive to the moderate. Such stores as Selfridges, House of Fraser, M&S then H&M, The Gap, and Forever 21 just to name a few from high to moderate. We saw many beautiful things to buy and we even bought a few, but mostly we just window shopped. There are... More

We spent a couple of hours shopping on Oxford Street, which was unfortunately the biggest disappointment of our London trip. Everyone recommended we spend some time shopping there because of the supposedly amazing shopping, but the shops are the same shops that you see everywhere- nothing special. Wish we had spent our time elsewhere!

suitable For shopping, it is a long street with many shops. You can use the london bus instead of walking. The bus stops at many stations along the street. On both sides of oxford, you can discover many cafes and restaurants.

Beautiful boutiques along probably the chicest (and most expensive) shopping street in London. Some of the world's best dressed men have their suits made here.

For me the best word to describe the Oxford Street is interesting. A lot of stores and boutiques there, offering their finest goods. It can be fun checking them out but I haven't spent the time of my life there. And you feel like being a sardine of consumerism while you drifting here and there in the crowd. But let's... More

Even if you have no intentions of shopping, a stroll down the the world's most famous street is worth the trip. I always feel a million dollars walking down Oxford Street and love the busy street during the day and night. A must see especially during December!
