London - Shopping in Oxford Street

Date: 18th April 2014

Silver bracelet that I purchased at Kensington's street as a memory of London

London, I mean Oxford Street was our last visited place in ending our 16 days of the 2nd leg earthbound train travel. I was lucky as Anne is simply agreeable to whatever changes that I proposed to her when it comes to our train rides project. For instance, having my 2 sisters in our 2nd leg was something that Anne agrees to though later we both shake hand that it would be the first and the last we squeeze other people to join in our adventure, our dreams. However, ending our long trip doing shopping, rest assured, all 4 of us went bonkers reaching this huge, narrow long lane Oxford Street. There's more than 300 shops are there on both sides of the street.

I have difficulties sharing photos for this entry as nobody bothers about taking photos as soon as we left Hyde Park. Everyone were too busy checking what more to shop for the love one back home, including myself. As for me, I bought 2 Fossils watches for the boys, 2 clerk shoes for me, lingerie in Mark & Spencer, lots of souvenirs etc etc. I also bought the most expensive bracelet from London, a pure silver with miniature of Tower Bridge, England's flag, Royal crown (see the first photo).

Oxford Street is a major road in the City of Westminster in the West End of London, Europe's busiest shopping street. The Street runs for approximately 2.5 kilometres from Marble Arch at the north east corner of Hyde Park, through Oxford Circus to St Giles Circus, at the junction with Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road. The shops open all day except in Christmas, from Monday to Tuesday, 9am till 10pm, except on Sunday it open slightly late, at 11am. You may click the link that I'm sharing herewith,, should you want to check the directions, shops that are operating along the street, where to get the foods so on and so forth.

Oxford Street offers an unrivalled shopping experience as it has an exciting mix of high-street fashion and international brands, accessories, childrenswear, technology and homewear. The 2.5km high street brands such as Topshop, Gap, River Island and endless iconic department stores including Selfridges, John Lewis, House of Fraser and Marks & Spencer, making Oxford Street as an ultimate shopping paradise. There’s variety of foods outlet (rest assured that Muslim’s food are plentiful to choose at) as there is always something to satisfy everyone.

Last but not least, we found the famous red London telephone booth and the red double decker bus to end my travelogue in London.
