All the high street brands you know and love all on one street. Many flagship stores located here and so much to buy. Make sure the budget is prepared for a hammering!

This was like Time Square meets Disney World for me. The shopping is amazing, which my wife loved and my wallet hated. Again, I'm sure a lot of women love this place but too busy and too much shopping for me.

It is a place for everyone to be in during Christmas, so much to experience and explore. Also it has special lighting effects. After the evening walk and shopping options to explore, the best is food to get is easy and all kinda of options to buy.

What else could you want, the Christmas Lights were on, everyone was in the festive spirit, most of the major stores are here, also it is in easy walking distance of Regent Street and Bond Street. A great place for shopping, there are plenty of small cafes in the side streets and so many photo opportunities, not to be missed... More

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.
