Always a buzz but shopping can get expensive
Sep 2021 • Family
Great shopping street and went there a few times. Always buzzing with people, some street artists, can also see some Instagram celebs but found it to be more expensive than other places in London.

The famous shopping street - almost empty now.
Aug 2021
We'd never imagined we'd get a chance to see Oxford Street, the famous shopping street, so empty and poor-looking.
But, alas, the pandemic hit London hard the the street was practically empty when we strolled through it during a weekend in August.

Be Aware!!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
There are a few large shops selling,cereals,sweets,football stuff and phone covers ,electric adapters,CBD stuff.

Please be aware none of these shops have any prices on,when you come to pay the prices are astronomical!!!!! Also the receipts you get have no name on and no tax numbers.

I just hope our credit card wont be compromised.

Please ask price before you buy,they seem a bit dodgy to me.

Shopping ideas
Sep 2021 • Friends
If you are a high-end shopper this is a great place to go. Or a window shopper. Not recommended necessarily for shopping for souvenirs or if you wanted to patch something in a sale. However I would definitely check the leather store near regent called Osprey which has great Items both for yourself and to purchase for others. As well as stopping at the British perfume house of Penhaligon’s

Very disappointing
Sep 2021
It is no longer worth visiting Oxford Street. It used to be the key shopping centre in London but has sadly declined beyond recognition. Shops consisted mostly of American candy stores and Macdonald's, sports clothes outlets and general tat. Found John Lewis which was an oasis, the positive kind of experience you used to have here. When I visit London again I will find other shopping areas

Now a Much More Subdued Shopping Experience in Oxford Street
Aug 2021
We were in London for a City Break and towards the end of our holiday we decided to take the tube down to Green Park Station in Oxford Street for the shopping experience there . We came out of the Tube Station we were greeted by several hundred protesters with Police attempting to control the crowds. We did not want that to spoil our experience but soon discovered several of the large department stores along Oxford Street are closed down with others currently closed for refurbishment. There are still quite a few stores remaining for the shopping experience but it is now a much more subdued hopping experience here.

Busy but good for shopping
Sep 2021 • Family
The street was quite busy as for all the shops there. People were queuing for the Oxford Circus tube station at rush hour so I would probably take the tube at Bond Street, Piccadilly Circus or Marble Arch instead. Some of the shops that are there are M&S, John Lewis, JD sports, Disney shop, Selfridges, House of Fraser and lots of sweet shops.

Don't bother.
Aug 2021 • Family
Very poor shopping experience . Had two grand daughters 10 and 8 in tow, desperate to buy outfits. Better choice of clothes in Worcester! Street full of Candy stores, cheap knick knack shops , overpriced 'names' and empty shop fronts. Tatty, and dirty looking these days - more a tourist trap than a genuine shopping centre. Such a disappointment when it used to be so vibrant.
