If you’re visiting London, then you have probably heard of Oxford Street. In this article, we are going to be exploring what makes this venue special and why tourists from countless countries decide to visit the shopping avenue every year. Filled with household names, British department stores, and famous stores – and everything in between – the area is the first shopping destination in the city to visit for many. Sales are frequent, and with Christmas looming, visitors will be looking to cash in on the fabulous deals in clothing.
By staying at the Hotel close Osterley Park or the BW Plus Park Grand London Heathrow you can enjoy a close vicinity to many on the city’s premiere attractions. One of the reasons why Oxford Street is so popular, and so overcrowded, is based on three reasons. Firstly, it’s found right in Central London – and is close to attractions such as the West End Theatre. Some of the stores can be found in Oxford Street include: H&M, House of Fraser, Debenhams, Forever 21, BHS, American Apparel, Gap, New Look, River Island – and Nike Town, located right besides Oxford Circus station.
Whatever you need – you can find it in Oxford Street. Just around the corner, Regent’s street – home to the Apple store – is filled more luxury stores such as Watches of Switzerland and Tommy Hilfiger. Continue walking, and you will arrive at Piccadilly Circus – often depicted in images of the city and on postcards.
In conclusion, if you are visiting London this winter, then be sure to take full advantage of Oxford Street. It’s full of department stores, and opportunities to upgrade your wardrobe in a way that you couldn’t have in any ordinary shopping street.
