Perfect for shopping sprees!! Or even just window shopping. It has pretty much everything, all the best shops :) It can get quite crowded so having plenty of time is a must, being in a rush is not suitable as there's usually a lot of people about. I spent a fair amount of time queueing in the shops, so patience... More

If you want all the top named shops in one place and you don't mind paying top prices, this is the place to go. Having said that, there are some bargains to be had. You just need to be patient and have the time to browse. You can't really rush around in Oxford Street, it is a very busy place.

Oxford Street along with others in central london has its own rather perculiar sunday shopping hours. It is worth remembering that the shops open from 11.30 am for browsing but purchases cannot be made until 12 noon. Some of the cafes within the shops do serve before noon so the wait is not to demanding. They shut at 1800 hrs

Shopping addicts....this is the place for you! If the places you covet is not on this street then it's right off of it or connects to it. Many stores on this street are anywhere between upscale to very affordable. One place in mind is PRIMARK. It's the Walmart/ Macys....with Walmart prices. This street is accessible from the Tube. Pretty much... More

Shopping on Oxford Street: London has some of that shopping. I was lucky enough to find some great buys. Unfortunately, someone stole my new purchases out of my suitcase on the way back. Boo!

This is one long street in London. They have stores like selfridges, John Lewis, the house of Fraser, and many other high end shops. It connects to Regent Street more shopping. I have a wife and two daughters we spend several days shopping there. You are also right next to Soho a great place for shopping and dinner.

This iconic Street is full of street stalls, little markets, great shops and of course, people. It can be very busy and worth visiting when you are bright eyed and bushy tailed. So much to take in. If it gets too much, just turn down a side street, the streets either side are very quiet if you need a break... More

Walking along Oxford street is quite enjoyable as you get a taste of local life. Great department stores line the street, and it's great exercise as you make your way to Park Lane. Incredible architecture. New Bond street is a nice diversion! Speaking of diversions, many of the buses that run along Oxford street will just STOP, as the bus... More
