Your Guide to Oxford Street

Heading to Underbelly? 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. One and a half miles of flagship stores, the coolest gaming and tech centres and fashion hotspots along with unrivalled restaurants, food halls and bars will provide a full day out for all the family 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. Department store, John Lewis & Partners has five floors to explore and Flannels is heaven for designer fashion fans. 

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 local 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.
