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.

Jermyn Street is a particularly good example of this, when construction work is not going on - which is almost never - it is one of the most beautiful streets in St James's lined with exclusive shops selling men's clothing and male grooming products - silver cut-throat razors and the like.

Oxford Street is perhaps the most famous shopping street in London if not the World with approximately three hundred shops squeezed in to a 2km long road.

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.

Another famous London shopping street which meets Oxford Street is Bond Street (comprising of Old Bond Street and New Bond Street). It is a true fashion mecca housing flagship stores by Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, and many other leading fashion brands.
