Focus on Oxford Street


Monday 12th February 2019

Oxford Street. It’s up there with Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London on every tourist’s ‘to visit’ list. One of the busiest (and best) shopping streets in the world sits right at the heart of London’s West End, attracting half a million visitors every single day. Home to the flagship stores of your favourite high street brands, and notably Britain’s famous department stores, it’s like visiting a top-class shopping centre amongst the hubbub and buzz of the capital. Every shopaholic should have it on their bucket list.

There’s more to this two-kilometre-long street than meets the eye though. It has as rich a history as it has incredible things to see and do today, so here’s our guide to understanding the area better than the average tourist and what to add to your shopping and dining agenda while you’re here.
