Christmas Lights were on, not as busy as Oxford Street but you can walk all the way down to Piccadilly Circus. Regent Street is the home of Hamleys, always an interesting shop to visit as well as many of the other stores

It is a street full of good stores and tons of people. Tourists everywhere. Amazing Christmas lights. Some street performers at night.

So many shops to go in, added to the beautiful Christmas lights means a huge draw for people! It was heaving and a little patience was needed to just walk down the street. Worth fighting the crowds to pop in and out of the great shops found here.

Hollister store. Worth a visit. Seek out Paul who is extremely helpful. He will go the extra mile and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely guy. Store is always busy and there isn't a lot of room but it is still a good place to shop.

Regent Street is a must when shopping in London. We happened to be here for Black Friday - it was fun but crazy! There are lots and lots of designer shops and lots of people so be prepared for a little patience both inside and outside the shops.

Black Friday weekend mat not have been the best time to visit as it was unbelievably busy. Having said that, the shops were amazing, stunning big Xmas displays. The regent street Xmas lights were classy and beautiful. The all white angels were perfect

There are a lot of American imports here, so not your usual chain stores that you find on Oxford St. My favourites are Coach & Anthropologie. You've also got some fabulous architecture and the world famous Hamleys. Great for window-shopping after hours, or to admire the window displays, especially at Christmas. They regularly close the street off to traffic for... More

Gorgeous and glorious large Angels in lights with wings spanning the entire street side to side. Finally a beautiful Christmas that relate to the true meaning of Christmas. Don't miss it! The photos attached are the Angels not yet lit up. They turned them on 17th of Nov.

I'm at that wonderful age where needs are more important than wants. I no longer take pleasure in shopping, however, I need the people interaction that cities provide in abundance. Regent Street is a short walk from Trafalgar Square. My friends and I strolled along Haymarket into Regent St. The Christmas lights are up but yet to be switch on.... More

We took the boys to London to see the Christmas lights and what a fantastic display and the shop displays where equally fantastic with Hamleys being the children's favourite . Highly recommend a visit but added a few photos to give you an idea how nice they are this year

Thank Jarrod H

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
