Your Guide to Oxford Street

3rd Jul 2021

Heading to Underbelly Festival? You’re in for a treat.

Not only will you see magical shows and be able to sample top notch street food in atmospheric outdoor bars, you are steps away from the heart of central London, the West End. A hop and a jump from Cavendish Square will land you on Oxford Street, the nation’s high street and ultimate shopping destination. First for fashion, food, entertainment and innovation, Oxford Street will provide a full day out with something for everyone to enjoy.

If you’re looking to update your summer wardrobe, Oxford Street is first for fashion. From the iconic Selfridges to high street favs Zara, River Island and New Look, you’ll be able to find the perfect outfit for those summer festivals, BBQs and picnics. Shop new season trends in homeware, furniture and fashion at department store, John Lewis & Partners and for designer brand fans, Flannels is fashion heaven. Alongside the world’s best shopping, Oxford Street has a variety of services to complement your shopping experience. You can have personal shopping and stylist appointments in Selfridges, customise your trainers in adidas and enjoy relaxing spa treatments in Lush – to name a few.

After a morning of shopping you can stop off for lunch at St Christopher’s Place, an alfresco dining quarter just off Oxford Street with an array of global cuisines to choose from. Or for the more adventurous, there’s the UK’s largest food hall Market Halls, which has a variety of street food stalls to sample.

For a more indulgent afternoon treat, check out one of the many hotels in the area that offer afternoon tea. The Palm Court at The Langham hotel offers a modern spin on this British tradition while the Scoff & Banter Tea Rooms at the Radisson Blu Berkshire hotel provides a peaceful sanctuary after a shopping spree on Oxford Street.

If you’re coming from out of London, you may want to extend your stay overnight in the capital at one of the world’s top hotels in the West End. These 4- and 5-star hotels offer a luxury experience for guests with award-winning rooms, restaurants, bars and spas to relax in. Famous names like Claridge’s, The Ritz and The Dorchester are a short stroll from Cavendish Square, perfect after a late-night show.

All around Oxford Street are great parks and green oases to rest and relax in too. From the large historical London squares like Grosvenor Square and Berkeley Square, to the cosy retreats just off Oxford Street such as Brown Hart Gardens and Soho Square, you’ll easily find somewhere to sit down and watch the world go by. Why not pick up some treats in the M&S Foodhall and have a picnic in the summer sun?
