Running from Waterloo Place through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street to All Souls Church, Regent Street is home to the flagship stores of Liberty, Hamleys and Apple!

Once in the Guiness Book of Records for being the largest bookstore by shelf length, the flagship store in Charing Cross is guaranteed to have a book for everyone. Although the store has been bought by Waterstones, Waterstones opted to retain the brand and the store is still known as Foyles.
