Whatever you want you will find it in this district. The mid-day crowds are horrific. Easy to get there and back via the Underground.

Anyone who visited London will not want to give a miss of this place, a shopping haven where you can grab anything you want here. One can easily spend a whole day here walking around one after another of the big departmental stores, well known boutiques, high street stores are all located in the area, selling from fashion to handbags...

Great street for shopaholics like myself! Large variety of shops to get lost in for hours. Plenty of bargains to be found too.

The difference is on a friday or saturday night you might see people getting really drunk. I would say it is not my cup of tea but if you want to shop i guess you should come here, but you'll get tired very fast. The traffic is also pretty bad.

I have visited Oxford Street in London in the run-up to Christmas every year for the past decade and it's always a great day out; you'll find all the most famous shopping names in the UK (except for Hamleys in Regent Street and Harrods in Knightsbridge but you can fit them into the same day easily too). The Christmas lights... More

Oxford street is great for shopping, but it seems every time I go to London, its getting more and more crowded. We were there in May/June this year and shopping Oxford Street was like pushing through wildebeest stampede. So many people, so few good manners. I used to really love the hustle and bustle of this area, but lately it... More
