Oxford Street is the busiest street in the UK for shopping and that means people and people mean pick pockets crowds and cost. It's best if you get to the shops early and leave by midday because after that it's chaos and a bun fight. Sure tourists don't always get up early so with the mass that throng to Oxford... More

One of the worlds iconic shopping streets, from high end boutiques to department stores to trashy trinket and gift shops. A few cafes and restaurants as well. If you have children you must visit Hamleys, just off Oxford street in Regent street.

Over the yeas, I have spent a number of hours on Oxford Street visiting various retail outlets, but particularly Selfridges. There are usually too many people and I feel exhausted after the visit

You can spend in oxford days! But, if you get tired fast (like me) its not the most comfortable place. There are no places to just sit and rest, so after 4-6 hours we just went to the hotel cuz I was tired and my legs hurt. There are no super cheap stuff (well, instead of primark), so if you... 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.
