Area Description: "Oxford Street is known far and wide as high street heaven and the mecca of shopping in the British Capital. Following the route of a Roman road, this must-see street is nearly a mile and a half long and has over 300 shops for your retail pleasure. Europe's largest Disney store will enchant visitors of all ages, and the world-famous Selfridges is definitely worth a visit, to marvel at the vast collection of luxury goods. Rest your feet in one of the many side street cafes and bars, or the top party spots Chinawhite and Movida are also nearby.
Soho, established long ago as the entertainment district, has great night life and a thriving film industry. The area has undergone considerable transformation in the last 30 years, and is now a fashionable district of upmarket restaurants and creative offices, sometimes dubbed the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœmedia mile' due to the growing number of media-orientated businesses in the area. This gives it a trendy, bohemian feel paving the way for the gay community who have adopted this area as their own and a multitude of businesses thrive on the pink pound.
The area is steeped in history and has often been a feature of authentic London in literature and on television, with traditional pubs, taverns and jazz clubs such as the famous Ronnie Scott's on Frith Street. Even amongst the modern media, the thriving nightlife in these close-knit streets has an air of decadence and glamour to make you think you've stepped back into the 1920's."
