I wandered onto Oxford Street on complete accident. It has beautiful photographic "aesthetics", with the old buildings, flags blowing in the wind, and pastel colors in the sun. It's a lovely place just to walk around. Shops are a bit on the luxury side, but pretty nonetheless.
Shopping! Shopping! Shopping!This is the place to buy all of the things you might ever want or need in London. It is miles long and houses more stores than I previously thought existed (clearly I'm not much for shopping). I thought the coolest part of Oxford Street was the light display around Christmas time. It was lovely to get out of the tube station to find a very well lit and decorated street awaiting me.
An incredibly vibrant shopping district! I as fortunate to visit in November when the streets are decorated with festive Christmas lights. You’ll see many familiar brands Global brands. My favorite was Primark which had very fun and inexpensive clothes that make great gifs and keepsakes.
London's most famous street if not the world's - Oxford Street has been branded as the place for expensive shopping however some of the great deals in local shops can be found here. Very close to Carnaby Street and Bond Street the network of these streets meeting Oxford Street at Oxford Circus is a shopoholic's playground.
You can do a LOT of shopping here, so be careful with your credit card- you may come home to an unpleasant bill! One of my favorite places in London, especially all decorated at Christmastime, there's space for budget and luxury shoppers alike (though for the high-end things you may have to step off to Bond Street). Beware during the evening rush hour, though- the tube gets insane, and don't even think about going into Primark during this time!
Well you know that it's going to be all right. I think it's gonna be all right. Well you know that it's going to be all right when we go shopping. So much shopping. Landon's shopping district is world renowned, and with reason. Stay away if you need to keep your wallet safe.
So many shops! There's two or three H'n'M, each one with five floors.
Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, dating back over nine centuries, and it’s reason enough to make the hour-long train trip from London to Oxford. Overall, there are 38 autonomous colleges that make up the University of Oxford, and a visit to any one of them will give you a feel for the history and beauty of Oxford. The Great Hall at Christ Church, one of the university’s most famous colleges, inspired Hogwarts Hall from the Harry Potter series. The Bodleian Library is another popular point of interest, housing over 9 million printed items. If you want to know what life was like in Oxford in the past, a visit to the Museum of Oxford will take you on a journey through the life and times of Oxford and its people.
