Shopping Neighborhood
Well known to tourists and Londoners alike, Regent Street (named after the Prince Regent) is one of the major shopping streets in London's West End. Completed in 1825, it runs from the Regent's residence at Carlton House in St James's at the southern end, through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus, to All Souls Church. Shop among the 2 km (1.24 mi) of store frontage where you can choose from an extensive range of international brands or simply admire the architecture. Relax and enjoy a bite to eat or a drink at the new food quarters following your shopping expedition, or continue the route to Regent's Park. If visiting at Christmas, don’t miss the impressive illuminations. With our online itinerary creator, London attractions like Regent Street can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
