    London is my favorite city in all Europe to shop for men's clothing. I first discovered Top Shop on Oxford Street. All the other usual characters are there, H&M, Bennetton and Zara. It's also the place you're most likely to see British celebrities.

    Major shopping street containing most of the major department stores in the West End which has improved a lot trafficwise since cars were banned. Worth it for Selfridges.

    Oxford Street runs right down through the center of the most busy part of London. There i much to do and lots happening! Lots of sites and sounds and shops to explore right in the center of the city!

    Shopaholics rejoice! For big brand names from around the world, Oxford Street is the place to go.

    For luxury, visit Selfridges and Debenhams.

    If you're a shopaholic Oxford Street is a must. It's the main shopping street in London with a lot of department stores. Also, you can find there H&M, Topshop, Forever21, ... and stuff like that.

    But I'm not a shopaholic, so I think it was a bit boring and basically much like any big shopping area in a big city.

    Oxford is one of London's main shopping drags. It's nice to see, but not so nice to pay the higher prices just because you found it on Oxford Street.

    Londons' main shopping street has an excellent array of shops but is unfortunately an absolute nightmare to navigate when its busy.

    Want to spend money than this street will help you part with it. It is also just a great way to walk and watch the natives and tourists interact.

    Oxford street, much like Time Square, is avoided by real Londoners at all costs as it is part of the Tourist circuit that surrounds Soho. The people you find on Oxford Street are local office workers and tourists, and they don't get along well come rush hour. Avoid at all costs between 5pm and 7pm during the work week. As every tube station is plunged into chaos.

Description:

London's quintessential high street, Oxford Street is lined with the world's biggest chains, selling all the budget and not-so-budget clothing, shoes, and music you could desire. Highlights include the flagship Marks and Spencer's flagship store, John Lewis, and Selfridge's. Bounded by the tube at Oxford Street and Marble Arch, with Bond Street stop in the middle, it's always packed with tourists and Londoners getting in a bit of shopping. Oxford Circus is London's tribute to modern consumerism, and a great place to buy almost anything from the western world.
