Oxford Street Shops Opening Hours

Hi there! We will be coming to London next week and I need some help with opening hours for shops on Oxford Street and generally central London. I read in Primark site: Opening hours

Monday 8.00 - 10.00

Tuesday 8.00 - 10.00

Wednesday 8.00 - 10.00

Thursday 8.00 - 10.00

Friday 8.00 - 10.00

Saturday 8.00 - 9.00

Sunday 12.00 - 6.00

Are Primark open till 10.00 at night time?! What about other shops in centre?

You'll find that the stores around Oxford Street, particularly the larger ones, are open until around 8-9pm (it may vary by store) with the exception of Sunday when there are legal restrictions on trading hours.

You might find this website useful for investigating specific stores: http://www.oxfordstreet.co.uk/

Actually the Primark site says 8.30 am til 10pm. I'd say the majority of stores are open 10 am till 8pm, (12-6pm on Sundays). Westfields are open c.10-10.

For Sundays, most shops and department stores open at 12.00 and close earlier than on weekdays.

On Sundays, shops in England (over a certain square footage) can only be open for 6 hours. Some have 1/2 an hour browsing time before the official opening time, but you would not be able to actually buy anything during the browsing time.

Most shops are therefore open 12-6 on Sundays, but this past weekend I ran afoul of a deli in St John's Wood that chooses to open 7.30-2, so it can vary greatly. (The 2 supermarkets in my neighbourhood are open 10-4 and 11-5 on Sundays.)

Hi, me and my partner are planning to visit Oxford Street on a Saturday evening but the official site states that the closing hour is 6pm. Is that really true?

The shops on Oxford Street set their own hours ( unlike large shopping centres where opening hours can be contractual). A quick check shows Selfridges and M&S open until 9pm while John Lewis closes at 8pm. If these three shops are open later than 6pm then I would expect others to remain open.

Although I can think of many better things to do on a Saturday evening in London than go shopping:)

P.S. That Oxford Street website definately says "7pm" on Saturdays, not "6pm" - but check the individual stores!
