Oxford Street Hotels - London

Mini guide to Oxford Street

     

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. Oxford Street boasts the largest shopping space of any major UK city, with over 5 million square feet. 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. December is an especially nice time to visit Oxford Street, as the street is beautifully illuminated with lights and decorations for Christmas.

Oxford Street 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, BHS and DH Evans are at the Marble Arch end, with shops at the Tottenham Court end tending to be bit somewhat downmarket. For music lovers, both HMV and Virgin have mega stores on Oxford Street. There are also two shopping malls on Oxford Street: West One (near Bond Street Station) and The Plaza.

Strolling down Oxford Street towards Marble Arch, you will see a small road with a tiny golden arch, which leads to St. Christopher's Place. This is a charming pedestrian area, with small boutiques, cafés and restaurants and is a great place to get away from the congestion on Oxford Street.

Further down, you will come to Bond Street. The street was named after Sir Thomas Bond, a major businessman in the area in the 17th century. The street is made up of New Bond Street in the north and Old Bond Street in the South. Both are known for their exclusive designer shops like Fahri, Chanel, Escada, Gucci and Versace. Here you will also find many antique shops and galleries, as well as famous auction houses Sotheby's and Philliips.

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.
