Street is the UK's busiest and most famous shopping area. There
are over 300 shops to choose from.
Apart perhaps from Selfridges
the street consists of tourist orientated small shops interspersed
with the UK flagship stores of all the main chain stores in Britain.
one of the original Roman roads, it was renamed Oxford Street in 1739.
Most of the main stores date from the 19th and 20th century. Today
Oxford Street is responsible for about 10% of retail spend in London.
Most of the chains found in UK high streets have their flagship London
store along Oxford Street. Note Harrods,
London's most famous and unique large store is not in Oxford Street
but the other side of London in Knightsbridge. You will also find
worthwhile upmarket stores around the corner in Regent Street. Off
Regent Street is a throwback to the sixties, Carnaby Street.
Oxford Street is closed to most traffic, London's famous red double
deck buses and taxis have full control of the roadway. Normally there
is a continuous line of red buses all along the street.
