topshop oxford circus

Topshop is an icon for High Street Fashion in England, known for their cheap plain tops, basic collections and a good range of all type of accessories. The Oxford Street branch is not just the largest Topshop in the country - it is a tourist spot on its own. There's a high turn-over of clothes so, in a season, there ere are literally thousands of tops and dresses for sale. It can be hard to track down a must-have item among the crowded rails but it's always worth the effort. Is possible to spend euros in this shop! Theres is few branches in London: Oxford Street/Regent Street, Clapham Junction, Victoria, Shepherds Bush and Knightsbridge as the most important ones.

181 Piccadilly London, England W1A 1ER United Kingdom +44 20 7734 8040 (Tube station: Piccadilly Circus)



The building itself, built in a very authentic Tudor style, is absolutely magnificent.

The rear part was built in 1924, from the timbers of two ships: HMS Impregnable and HMS Hindustan. The frontage at Great Marlborough is the same length as the Hindustan. Best for casual wandering rather than trying to locate something specific we reckon. There's plenty of character though, Liberty prints are firmly back in style and the beauty section is gorgeous.

Opening Hours: Monday - Saturday 10am - 9pm ; Sunday 12pm - 6pm

The Food Hall is ostentatious to the core and mouth-wateringly exotic, and the store as a whole is well served with restaurants.
