Regent Street, London

4.3
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. By using our London route builder app , you can arrange your visit to Regent Street and other attractions in London.

  • A beautiful street, curved and full of Georgian architecture, like the Crescent in Bath. Great shops, too, but terribly overpriced. You won't find pound stores on this street.  more »
  • Charming Street to see, very large and with typical buildings also deserves a visit even for some shops first and foremost hamleys, even if that children will look cute for a spin given that toys are not the usual found elsewhere, also if you have someone in the heart make him a different present a teddy bear made for you What first completely original now lies elsewhere, but still remains sympathetic. Also at the end are nice little shops like godiva where Council the cone of chocolate strawberries or the cute shops that sells tea and teapots.

  • Street from Piccadilly Circus diagonally up in Burberry, Brooks and UNIQLO. I'd once had a head of aquascutum. Is that even the amateur pictures want to take.

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.
