Oxford Street is one of the Europe’s busiest shopping streets and has some of London’s best shops. It stretches for more than a mile between Charing Cross Road and Hyde Park in the west. It is usually jam-packed with shoppers too, and you’ll be hard-pressed to even cross the road at Christmas.

It is has all the main department stores, including John Lewis, M&S and Selfridges. It also has some big names on the high street, like Next, Top Shop and HMV.

Shops in Oxford Street

Selfridges was built by a Chicago businessman in 1909, and occupies a whole block on Oxford Street.

It is said that Selfridge was responsible for bringing American sales methods to English business – utilizing eye-catching window displays.

 
  • SarahCroft – “This is where I head if I want to do some serious shopping. There is no need to travel all around London getting tired, because they have everything you need in oxford street. Selfridges (huge!), John lewis (huge), marks & sparks (huge), next (x2), gap (huge), topshop (huge). I am just sorry that border's closed down, because that was the best bookshop in London. But oxford street has still got a big branch of waterstones, which is nearly as good.”
  • sarahg – “Oxford street is always heaving, and theyve got rid of borders which used to be my favourite shop in London. I think its gone bust. But if you like next, then you'll be happy in oxford street because they've got 3 of them! Why they just cant turn them all into one huge big one I dont know. Because then I could do all my clothes buying in one place without having to walk anywhere else!.”
