Shopping here is expensive and there is way to many people. My niece was fours years old at the time and couldn't walk in the street for being squashed.

Took my 20 year old daughter shopping. Fortunately it was her own money, so only my legs are wrecked. According to her it was like being in a dream.

A shop for every taste and style. Such a vibrant part of London. It's often very busy though so best to get their earlier than 10:00am. Also close to China Town for some dumplings or Leicester Square and the West End. There's never a dull moment here with lots to see and do. Not all expensive stores, plenty of 'normal... More

London's most vibrant and busy street. Ideal for visiting and shopping and activities are very nice. A wide variety of cafes on the street is an environment where you can find unwind. They should be haunting the count Tiyatrol London. If your English is very good I would recommend you to watch theater. London to visit historical sites and magnificent... More

Oxford Street is one of my favourite places to be in the world, when it comes to shopping. Great shops, the bustling energy, people from all over the world, fabulous shops jostling with tacky touristy stalls- what more do you need? Plan to walk from one end to the other, stopping at small snack bars on the way.

Best place for shopping. Also, a must see! Better to visit early in the morning as the street itself and the shops are incredibly crowded at other times.

I Love Oxford Street. Its madness! The best thing to do is have a wonder down here at 8:30am, a lot of the shops open between 8am and 9am, so its easy to miss the rush. Plus you can do the all important shopping whilst people are still tucked up in bed, it makes browsing a lot easier!! If you... More

Oxford Street will be the centre of your life if you’re a crazy shopper! You'll find every known brand over here and flagships stores as big as supermarkets. There's also a lot of people moving and shopping around here so if you're not a crowd person, careful with the time slot you choose to go there.

Oxford Street has to be the shopping centre of the city - with the number of shops - from the most expensive to the cheapest - all on the same stretch of the road. The street is well served by the Tube network with Oxford Street, Bond Street and Marble Arch along the same stretch and then there is Piccadilly... More
