Oxford Street

With a reputation for being one of the best shopping streets in the world, there's not much you won't find on Oxford Street. Selfridges at the north end, near to Bond Street station, was built in 1908 and the second largest shop in the UK. Selfridges redefined shopping as we know it and is responsible for a lot of Oxford Street's visitors. Primark's flagship store near Marble Arch and a plethora of on-trend brands like Forever 21, Bershka and Pull and Bear make Oxford Street a must visit. If you're looking for somewhere to eat, then there's also a vast selection of café's and restaurants to choose from.

Carnaby Street

Established as a popular shopping street with mods and hippies in the 1960s, Carnaby street has been an iconic Mecca for both Londoners and tourists alike for decades. From Mary Quant and Kleptomania in the swinging sixties to Size? And Skinny Dip in the present day, the street has always been synonymous with high fashion and culture. A haunt for celebrities, artists and fashionistas alike, Carnaby Street is a London landmark not to be missed.

New Bond Street & Old Bond Street

Home to some of the world's most prestigious retailers including Asprey, Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and Tiffany & Co, and more Royal Warrant holders than anywhere else in London, Bond Street is revered throughout the world. Offering an unrivalled mix of history, traditional elegance and modern luxury, if you want to spend, spend, spend then Bond Street is the place for you. Serviced by Green Park tube at one end and Bond Street station at the other, you're never too far away from some of the best shops London has to offer.

South Molton Street

Mayfair's South Molton Street runs from Oxford Street to Brook Street, close to Bond Street station and is home to a collection of shops, bars and even an art gallery. Pedestrianised in the 1900s, this beautiful Georgian street is now one of London's most visited shopping areas, boasting boutiques and brands alike. Go to Aubade to find top-of-the-range luxury lingerie, or head to Sandro for cardigans, leather jackets and elegant cocktail dresses. South Molton Street also hosts several jewellers, and popular brands such as Pinko, Ted Baker and Maje.

Regent Street

One of London's oldest shopping streets, Regent Street has been home to some of the most iconic and prestigious stores in London. The world-famous Liberty's sits at the Oxford Street end, housing a beauty department as well as several floors of clothing and fine furniture. Hamleys, the oldest and largest toy store in the world, is a few doors away and boasts seven floors of toys and games. More recent additions, such as the Apple Store and Ted Baker, also share a place on this beautifully designed street.
