After visiting the National Gallery, we went to Oxford Street.Oxford Street is Britain’s premier shopping street, attracting 30 million tourists from around the world each year.It is the shopping hub of London’s West End, with more than 300 of the world’s largest stores crammed into its 1.25 miles of streets.From Roman times until the 17th century, Oxford Street was mainly used as a road from outside west London to the Oxford area.At the end of the 18th century, Oxford Street began to take on its present size with the building of Gauss Bend in the south and Portman in the north.First – class shopping malls began to take off in the 20th century, along with the opening of small shops.Oxford Street is the preferred shopping street to London, in this less than two kilometers of the street, there are more than 300 large shopping malls.Seifbridges has a great collection of top brands with a British flair that will give you a five-star experience.Oxford Street enjoys a worldwide reputation, attracting tourists not only from other parts of the UK, but also from overseas.Oxford Street is the preferred shopping street to London, in this less than two kilometers of the street, there are more than 300 large shopping malls.Seifbridges has a great collection of top brands with a British flair that will give you a five-star experience.Oxford Street enjoys a worldwide reputation, attracting tourists not only from other parts of the UK, but also from overseas.Every year, an endless stream of foreign tourists come here to visit and shop, and their spending here accounts for 20% of the total income of Oxford Street.Like retail, the street is home to tens of thousands of people.Oxford Street stores offer a wide range of styles, and some of Italy’s top brands have more goods in London than in the shops of origin.Burberry, with its classic British flavor, is one of the most popular brands.Here, in addition to seeing famous brands and enjoying high-end services in established department stores, the architectural features of shops are also a scenery.The best thing about Oxford Street is that all the shops are side by side and the streets are bright and spacious, making it a shopping paradise.The price level in London is definitely “international” and the prices are definitely not cheap, so my advice to you is: British shoes are worth buying, good quality and relatively cheap.Moreover, an unquenchable shopping truism is “buy local, buy local”, and buy British products in Britain will always be cheaper than elsewhere.I’m here for sightseeing, not shopping. The classical architecture is my main “interview” subject.Historically, from Roman times until the 17th century, Oxford Street was mainly used as a route from outside the West end of London to the Oxford area.In the late 18th century, the construction of major tracts of built-up land, Grosvenor in the south, Portman in the north and Portland(today HowarddeWalden), made Oxford street much of what it is today.First class shopping centres took off in the 20th century, with the opening of smaller shops on their way to becoming main shops, such as Selfridges, which first opened in 1865 and opened its larger section to the public only in 1929.
