It's a great place where most renowned brands and flagship stores are located. Traffic is busy coz buses pass by every single minute. You can see all types of persons from different culture everywhere with bags and souvenirs trolling on the street. I'd recommend to visit the area during weekdays where there'll be less visitors than in the weekends.

Shops ranging from low price, such as Primark, to the designer labels of Liberty. Fast food and fine dining and quirky pubs and smart bars. One shoe fits all kind of location.

In London and not shopping, better you don't come to London. London in famous for its style and fashion and the best place to shop in the world. I have grown up listening to the line - " I have gone to London to shop" When I was in London last month, the one thing I want to do was... More

Shortly said Oxford Street is a shopping heaven! With many high street shops like Selfridges, John Lewis, Zara and Gap (just a few to mention) this street is a shoppers paradise which brings us to the down side of the street- CROWDS! With so many stores this place is the busiest shopping street in Europe (fact). During the Festive periods... More

There are a lot of shops here but it is super busy. It's also a good street to get to if you are lost - easy to find your way once you are on Oxford Street

Oxford Street is literally a shopper's paradise, with the world's biggest brands available here. You can spend a whole day here. Its that captivating and has so much to offer. This place oozes style, energy, and life! A must visit. Do not club it with any other activity to derive most out of this fantastic place.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
