A main and very busy shopping street I. London. It's a must see but be prepared for a large crowd. It seems weekends are more active.

Its the place to go if you enjoy shopping. Otherwise make sure you arrive early to miss the crowds. Avoid school holidays too - far too busy!

Oxford Street is a shopper's heaven. Any brand you want--so long as it's trendy and/or expensive--can be found here. Just be warned that you have to pick your hours carefully. I made the mistake of going about the time people get off work. It was too much to handle, so I left and came back another day and time.

No matter what side of the street or where on Baker Street you start, you are sure to find treasures to take home, luxury items, clothing galore in the latest fashions, and so much more. A great collection of shops awaits your stroll along the street on both sides. Enjoy an hour or all day -- restaurants are woven throughout... More

Well it is one of the greatest shopping streets in London. If this street doesn't have what you are looking for you might have some difficulty to find it. You should be prepared of the amount of people walking around it is immense.

Just shopping and millions of people. If you came to London to shop then great, this is for you. Otherwise stay away. Oxford circus at night had some cool street performances.

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.
