London has some of the world’s most famous streets, many of which attract thousands of visitors every single day of the year. When planning a stay at one of our hotels in London, you’ll want to think carefully about where you want to see and visit on your trip. Keep reading as we discover some of the most famous streets in London.

What is the Busiest Street in London?

The busiest street in London is usually considered to be Oxford Street, with both pedestrians and traffic constantly flowing through this street. Of course, as far as driving, some of the streets heading into the city are known for their heavy congestion, especially during the morning and evening rush hours. Any of the central areas in London have very busy streets, which is why we don’t typically recommend driving here during your stay.

Top Shopping Streets in London

One of the top reasons for London’s busy streets is that they attract so many visitors to their world-famous shops. These are a few of the busiest London streets for shopping.

Oxford Street

Located close to London Tottenham Court Road and our Bloomsbury Palace Hotel, you’ll find Oxford Street. This shopping street welcomes visitors and locals from first thing in the morning until last thing at night. You’ll find every type of store you could imagine here and we love visiting in December when the Christmas lights and decorations are up.

Regent Street

Leading up to Oxford Street, you’ll find Regent Street, which is another famous shopping street. It has many of the city’s flagship stores and is also beautiful at Christmas with its sweeping lights overhead.

Westfield Shopping Centres

Another great spot for shopping in London is at either of the Westfield shopping centres. These modern shopping centres appeal to shoppers with all budgets and can easily be reached by tube.

Busiest Street for Culture

Areas which are popular with culture seekers include Brick Lane (a short walk from our Great St Helen Hotel), Camden, and South Kensington. You’ll also find that the area surrounding Big Ben is very busy at any time of the day, as many tourists flock to see the landmark attractions in this area.

Best Street for Food

Amazing food can be found throughout the city, but we particularly recommend heading to Covent Garden, Chinatown, or Leicester Square. These areas are great for tourists to visit and come to life in a whole new way at night-time.

Popular Theatre Streets

A night at the theatre is a must-do for anyone visiting London. The main theatres are spread around the Covent Garden and Leicester Square areas, and they can easily be reached from our Hatton Garden Hotel or Hotel Cavendish. Drury Lane has a long and fascinating history within the theatre industry and is well worth stopping by on your visit.
