So so busy!

Almost all the shops you can think of, but extremely busy. Don't forget to pop your head down the side streets and see some of the other places :)

Excellent place for shopping, or just walking around admiring the wonderful architecture. It is such a busy street with people from all over the world. You can stop to have some coffee in one of the most beautiful and charming cafés in London.

It is a little busy, commercial and touristy, but this is a part of London that will certainly appeal to a certain traveler. There are all kinds of shops here, running the gamut from those that appeal to the masses to the very exclusive. Transport is easy around here with a couple stops on the Central line and several buses... More

During summer, totally overcrowded - a shopping street with lots of shops. Mostly clothing chains and shopping malls. Small food kiosks for grabbing something while shopping.

Of course, Oxford street is a "must" when visiting London. But don't get stuck here. There are a lot of other places to do your shopping at. However, the fact that they have a lot of famous and well known stores is tempting to a huge audience.

To me it was a great feeling to be out and about around Oxford street, it has loads of shops and numerous bus stops and tube station. I've been there like 20 times or something during my stay

Oxford Street comprises of department stores,retail shops and mainly fast food restaurant.It tends to go a bit more down market going east from Oxford Street.Often extremely crowded.Sadly since I first came here the Joe Lyons restaurants and all the cinemas have gone.

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.
