    A good place to get a taste of London's architecture. Also good for people watching and shopping.

    It's like a mini festival each summer/autumn evening with live bands - buzzing heart of London

    Horrendous hell-like complex filled with blank-eyed zombies and crazed tourists. Prepare to be shoved.

    Unimaginable amount of shops! And if you go off the main roads you can find some lovely little pubs and bars.

    Best to avoid crossing here at any cost unless you r tourist, hard core shopper, or just simply mad.

    Very busy street. Not recommended, especially during the Christmas shopping season.
  • Merel V.
    Go to Oxford Circus station if you're in for a good day shopping - direct access to Oxford Street where all the big stores are.

    Crowded, stressful, traffic everywhere, same high street brands as everywhere else but yet it's got a pulse and heart of London...

    Tons of camera shops here. If your in need of some new supplies for whatever camera you own there are plenty of shops to choose from.

    It's often not pleasant (noisy and hugely over-crowded) ...but you can't deny there's something pretty magic about standing slap-bang in the heart of London, watching the world go by.

    Amazing shopping street. But advice, don't stop walking. Keep with the flow and you won't get run into by other people 😀

    Avoid apart from the people spectacle. Through roads round all the back streets are better and some quirky with shops to look in to and places to eat and drink

    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.
  • Magdalena M.
    One of busiest places in London. Zillions of tourists and shopping-stricken Londoners. Still worth undergoing the danger of being stomped to death;)

    Avoid the area between 5.30pm and 6.45pm on weeknights, there's always a wait to get in and huge crowds...
