Oxford Circus – meaning circle in Latin – is a major junction in London connecting Regents Street to the major shopping district of Piccadilly. Here you can find a huge variety of shops and restaurants, and major brands like Tower Records, and Virgin Mega-store.

If you want to see a one of a kind show or catch a world famous musical then it is advised that you book well in advance as tickets tend to get snatched up quickly and you could find yourself waiting in long lines, spending much more money (and time) than you intended and ending up getting the worst seat in the house. Take it from our experience that the best way to see London is to plan ahead on time, in order to avoid disappointment and overspending on your hard earned vacation.

There are many other attractions in the area, like Chinatown, Haymarket, Covent Garden and Regents Street. The best way to see London as a tourist is to take the hop on hop off bus, where you can save a lot of energy and money by just hopping on and off. If you decide to walk around instead, as attractions are very close to one another and you get to really experience the city, just remember to bring comfortable walking shoes and an umbrella.
