Perhaps one of the most famous shopping districts in the world, Oxford Street is a mecca for millions of tourists and Londoners who flock to the shops every day of the week. Many Oxford Street shops are actually the UK's flagship high street stores, from a giant TopShop, H&M and Nike Town to a three-storey HMV. In this busy area, you can find pretty much any high street store along Oxford Street and Bond Street, which ends at Marble Arch with a huge Primark store. The area is also fairly pedestrian-friendly, with innovative traffic lights at Oxford Circus that let you cross diagonally, halting the streams of buses and taxis. Christmas shopping is also a popular activity here, as the Oxford Street lights add to the festive spirit. By taking a detour off Oxford Street, you can also find Regent Street, which houses the famous Hamleys toy store, Apple and Armani Exchange. Meanwhile, Carnaby Street, made famous in the 1970s as a fashion hub, is also located off Oxford Street, as well as luxury department store Liberty.
