Some iconic shops here, perhaps foremost amongst them is the gem known as hambleys. Also apple, Michael kors, Bose, Barbour, Kipling and much more fashion, jewellery etc than you can shake a stick at. You'll find oxford street at the top, a short jump to Carnaby street and also saville row. Whatever you want I betcha you'll find it here.... More

The most impressive avenue in London! Especially in Christmas a night walk or morning walking to the shops is really magic.

Lovely and monumental street, absolutely worth a walk. Different if you are going for shopping, prepare your wallet or go somewhere else ;). Anyway there are some nice and somehow affordable cafes around. Don´t miss during Christmas!

After having been in London nearly all day, the family wanted to see the lights before driving home, so made a slight detour to include Regent Street on the route. I have seen the lights here many years ago, but this years display seemed better than I remember. A brilliant (no pun intended) way yo end our day.

These are the best Christmas lights I've seen in Regent Street for many years because of their simplicity and lack of commercial advertising. The angel figures are well-sculpted and the lights on their wings are beautiful.

While Regent street is known for its shops, it's a great place to people watch. Hop on a bus and ride from one end to the other. Pay attention to the people who get on and off. Listen in on their conversations. Watch who's coming and going from the ready shops. When you get to the end of the street,... More

Together with Oxford str, Regent street is know mostly for shopping. One of the differences is that this one is not so crowded like Oxford str. but still decent amount of people. If you take the underground till Oxford Circus Station and go down the street you will pass Piccadilly Circus and even further down you will find yourself at... More

Was fortunate to be on Regent Street for the switch on of the spectacular Christmas lights with the fireworks celebration on a Thursday night in November. Certainly was a wonderful way to ring in the holiday season. This year's display of angels was a throw back to the first set of Christmas lights which went up in 1954.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
