Nice area

It's not as big and bustling as Oxford street. However it has its own charm which makes it worth passong through it.

This is where locals and tourists melt together for shopping. I would avoid going there at any costs.

We were on this street when walking from Picadilly Circus towards the Mall. It's nice and pleasant enough. There are many stores, and if that is not of interest, there is no particular reason to specifically go there.

This is a lovely and beautiful street to begin with, but it transforms into a magical street during the holiday season. The Christmas lights make the entire street feel and look like a set in a fantasy movie. Highly recommended during the holiday season, despite it being ever so crowded.

One of the most elegant and refined areas of London. It's a pleasure to walk along Regent Street. Full of stores, best brands, cafes, restaurants and amazing buildings.

There are plenty of shops through this street and it is worth taking the time to come see them if you like shopping. The main drawcard are the Christmas Lights. The lights are truly amazing and are a necessary sight in London.

We went on a tour of streets lit up for Christmas. Regent Street really didn’t disappoint us. Its white, gold and blue angels suspended between buildings seemed to be crying out “Christ is born”. Good effort on Regent Street.

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!

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.
