Oxford Circus Hotels - London

Mini guide to Oxford Circus

     

Oxford Street stretches for two miles through the heart of the West End with Marble Arch at one end and Tottenham Court Road at the other. It is London's shopping mecca, with over 300 shops to choose from. Most of the large department stores such as Selfridges, John Lewis and Marks & Spencers, Debenhams, British Home Stores and DH Evans are at the Marble Arch end, with shops at the Tottenham Court end tending to be somewhat downmarket. For music lovers, both HMV and Virgin have mega stores on Oxford Street. The street was given its name for two reasons: first, because it used to lead to Oxford and second, because the Earl of Oxford bought the open land north of it in 1793.

Oxford Circus is the meeting point of Regent Street, which runs to Piccadilly Circus then all the way to Pall Mall, and Oxford Street. John Nash designed Regent Street to be a ceremonial route from the Prince Regent's in Carlton House to Regent's Park. Now, Regent Street is one of the renowned shopping areas in London and home to some of the most luxurious stores in the world. The famous shops along Regent Street, include: Libertys (department store), Hamley's (toy store - a must visit, even to browse!), Waterford Wedgwood (crystal and porcelain), Aquascutum (clothing), Burberrys (clothing) and Laura Ashley (clothing and interior decorating).

After a long day spent shopping and browsing, it's fun to have traditional afternoon tea at the Café Royal listening to a harpist - it is wise to make a reservation. Enjoy the cucumber sandwiches and delicious scones, with a vast array of teas.

There is a whole range of hotels in and around the Oxford Street area, ranging from luxury 5 star hotels to quaint small hotels located right off Oxford Street itself. It is a convenient and fun area to be in and gives great access to various sights either by train (Piccadilly, Bakerloo, and Central lines) or on foot.
