Top ways to experience Regent Street
The area
Neighborhood: St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
How to get there
  • Green Park • 5 min walk
  • Piccadilly Circus • 5 min walk

Disappointed costumer service
Sep 2021 • Solo
I visited the store with a brand new case,
I have read online the TnC and I have a one year guarantee form apple, the case broke in the corner so I visited to claim a new one, After explaining the situation to the apple assistant the Lady manager come in, she was rude and she start blaming me for the fault of the case, I did request her opinion in written so I can pass her point of view to the costumer service but she denied again by being rude and stating that her opinion is the wright one as she’s the manager, I never dealt with a more rude costumer service than this lady, she downgraded the apple standards by far, I hope someone sees this and take actions,

Totally disappointed by apple and this employee.
I don’t wanna give her name as it’s difficult times for someone losing there job but don’t forget that being polite cost you nothing.

Getting here was quite easy as Piccadilly Circus station is a few minutes walk away. The street itself was busy but not too busy. Oxford Street was a lot busier.

Fit for a king!

Most visitors to London will walk the elegant stretch of Regent Street between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus at some stage during a visit to the city - either to shop, or to have a look at its balanced, graceful and stylish architecture, or both, of course. The street actually extends a bit further than this, to the 19th century evangelical church of All Souls Langham Place in the north, and Waterloo Place across Piccadilly Circus in the south.

Regent Street is one of London’s two premier shopping streets, the other being Oxford Street. Regent Street is certainly the more prestigious and the more upmarket of the two, being home to a number of flagship retail stores (such as Liberty, Hamleys and the Apple Store) and a veritable plethora of international and designer brands.

In normal times it’s extremely busy, and can feel very crowded and oppressive. So have patience as you wander to take it all in.

The street is quite historic. Its first layout was completed in 1825, and it was one of London’s first purpose built shopping centres. However, what you see today was put in place between 1904 and 1925. This rebuilding removed the original colonnades which allowed shoppers to walk along the street under cover from bad weather (and it also removed the prevalence of ‘working girls’ plying their trade in the colonnades). Today you can’t help but admire the uniformity of the street, with the buildings all clad in Portland Stone and restricted to 5 storeys in height. Its uniformity is pleasing to the eye, and as every building on the main stretch is Grade II listed, its grandeur and elegance should continue to be preserved.

It got its name in 1819, after the prince regent at the time; the prince regent later became King George IV.

Enjoy your walk! Look up, and around you... not just in the beautiful stores!

Look around
Dec 2020
Regent Street is off of Oxford Street.

For me it is quieter (now pedestrian only due to Covid) with better building design and structure - take time to have a look aroUnd and above eye level.

This street has awesome shops and a great experience. It’s a must. Looks great for Christmas.

More quite than normal
Aug 2020 • Family
Most of the shops have reopened, but definitely more quite than normal. The road has been narrowed in order to accommodate social distancing.
