Oxford Street together with Regent Street is one of the largest shopping streets in London. Before and after Christmas day all the shops have sales. During the evening it was very hard to get from one side to the other, but on Christmas day there was hardly anybody there. The whole street was deserted except for a couple of tourists.

Oxford Street is one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe with over 300 shops. Every year the street has more than 9 million visitors. Amongst others you'll find stores here from Selfridges, Marks & Spencer, HMV and the Disney Store.

At the junction of Regent Street and Oxford Street lies the subway station Oxford Circus, one of the busiest subway stations in London. Some of the things you'll find here are the Apple Retail store, the BBC headquarters Broadcasting House and the All Souls Church.

Piccadilly Circus is also known for the big neon signs. These can now only be found on the building in the north west corner of the square.

Trafalgar Square is named after the sea battle at Trafalgar in 1805. In the middle of the square is Nelson's Column who defeated the fleet of Napoleon during this battle. Together with Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square it is one of the most famous squares in London.
