Oxford street is a must do for any tourist to London. It has everything, designer brands, premium brands, even Primark . So there is something for everyone. All the major phone brands are also on the street. Several restaurants to also choose from. When i visited, a major part of the street was being repaired which was a bit disruptive

If you're a big shopper and you love walking around all day seeking bargains and searching every shop then Oxford Street is for you. There are so many department stores to explore that you can literally spend a whole day on this one street. It's only downfall is because of it's popularity it is always busy, especially when sales are... More

Love this street, pacing up and down and nipping into all the English high street stores, and somehow I always end up spending an hour or two in Selfrides :) But do avoid Primark!!!

This area is loaded with high end shopping and very crowded for most of the time. The street is narrow and clogged with buses and taxi's. Makes for a vibrant scene.

One of the best high street areas in London. Oxford has so much to see, definitely lots of historic buildings that go through the ages. Ultra modern, to medieval historic buildings. There's also Selfridge's Department Store on the Oxford High Street. It's easily accessible to many bus and tube routes. Stroll along the street or take a double decker bus... More

Yes, Oxford street offers great big department stores but I'd rather shop elsewhere. It's always unpleasantly busy whatever ever the time or day you go. The underground is hellish. I don't understand why people don't shop elsewhere if they don't live in London. That being said there are enormous versions of all the high street shops so you have plenty... More

Oxford Street is great in the sense that everything you need is there - it's just too stressful trying to move come midday. If you arrive early when the shops are just opening it's great, but once the crowds arrive you have had it.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
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.
