If you enjoy shopping, this is the place to go in London. Most of the big department stores such as Selfridges and Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, a few Boots Pharmacy stores, and a very busy Primark store.

We took the Gatwick express up to London and made our way to Oxford Street to hopefully pick up some last minute bargain before we flow out of Gatwick,Plenty of shops, plenty of choices but very busy.

Oxford Street is a great example of old London architecture meeting the modern world, with shopping malls and great department stores lining the street houses in beautiful buildings. Close to a lot of major sight seeing attractions.

The area is quite awesome for shopping. It feels quite good to wander around under sunny afternoon where you don't feel hot! It's quite a good experience for us.
