Central London has many fantastic shopping streets crammed with all manner of shops selling goodies you never even knew you needed until you see them.

Regent Street which crosses Oxford Street is arguably as well known, at least to Monopoly fans. Regent Street is home to the flagship Apple store in London; Burberry's flagship store; and of course the kids' favourite, the World famous Hamley's Toy Store.
