    The crush of people can make navigating Oxford Circus a little hard, but as the centre of the West End's shopping mecca it's unmissable.

    Avoid taking the tube here during peak hours. It gets so busy they'll shut the gates and there'll be long queue up the stairs all the way out while d amount of people on the platform eases out.

    Don't walk down Regent St to get to Piccadilly Circus; too crowded. Cut down Carnaby St then other side streets for a quicker walk and interesting small shops on the way.

    Oxford Circus got its new diagonal pedestrian crossing in 2009. It was inspired by crossings in Tokyo like the one at Shibuya, and in recognition of this Japanese musicians played at the opening.
