Oxford street is a must, but you can not save yourself from the busy hours. There are actually no non busy hours. Great shops for shopping, reachable prices and luxury goods next to each other. If you need some top up, behind the street lots of pubs and a few coffee shops waiting for you.

Oxford Street is one of the best places in London. It is plenty of shops both for clothes and pastries, including a macaroni bakery. Even though Oxford Street is big, is not chaotic enough. Overall, I highly recommend to visit this place.

This is a nice and busy road. It's good that you can admire the architecture while moving from a boutique to another. Window shopping will be a nice experience too, as the famous brands are there.

The feeling, the stores and the architecture were outstanding to say the last, no complaints about that for my part, what I did not enjoy though, was the customer service. Many cashiers and employees had sad behaviours and did not feel obliged at all to do their jobs. One cashier in Primark even said "I'm so done with this" right... More

Oxford road may seem busy and frantic but when not there at peek times, the street it lit up with light and colour and it is a great place to go with friends or family. With many shopping stores for men, women and children there is no place better. The restaurant options are great and the service provided is exceptional.... More

Is there anything i can renew for future visitors ? probably not. But still i'd like to say that from all places ive been in Europe, shopping in Oxford st. would be my number 1. EVERYTHING can be found here, and theres no way of seeing all Oxford in one day. Just note that it is considered one of the... More

Went into M&S near Marble Arch for lunch (went two weeks ago as well), had the hot smoked salmon salad nicoise and a decaff coffee. Have to say that the extremely good flavour of both was wonderful. Service was great and price was amazing for the busiest shopping street in London. Can highly recommend this as a lunch or afternoon... More

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.
