Christmas in London’s Oxford Street 2014


The West End of Oxford Street tends to be the location of many of the flagships stores of the main London department stores.


Selfridges, House of Fraser, Debenhams, Mark’s and Spencer’s amongst others go to town with Christmas decorations to attract shoppers to their stores.


However it is worth remembering in the weekends leading up to Christmas, Oxford Street gets incredibly busy and if you can shop at other off peak times you will probably get a better shopping experience.


Many of the stores hold special Christmas Events and special promotional offers.
