Fashion and trendy shopping food and drink route

This takes you on a great ‘Eat, Drink and Be Merry’ tour from Oxford Street in the north through Kingly Street, Carnaby Street Heddon Street, and Regent Street before emerging onto Piccadilly and finishing at Piccadilly Circus. It has a wide range of pubs, bars, restaurants, and cafes to suit all tastes and pockets. It also has theatres, amusements and galleries close by as well as being on the edge of the West End shopping district and Soho.

The route is excellent for atmosphere, history, iconic sights, crowds, shops, cinemas, museums, a village feel, narrow streets, and lots of places to eat, drink and be merry.



Morning- This route can be quite busy along most of this route but it tends to be reasonably quiet in the mornings. The best time to explore the route is early morning when the lighting is at its best and few people are around. It is also a great way to discover places for breakfast.

Day - This route will get busy during the day especially from lunchtime onwards

Evening - This route will be busy in the evening.


This 1.3 km route starts on Oxford Street outside Oxford Circus Station. It heads down Argyll Street towards Liberty London on Great Marlborough Street where it turns right and then immediately left into Kingly Street. This street has plenty of places to eat and drink along its length and even more when you turn into Kingly Court on the left side towards the end. This has three floors of places to eat and drink and will exit onto Carnaby Street where the route turns right and then right again onto Beak Street before exiting onto Regent Street. The route goes directly across into a small alleyway and the delightful Heddon Street with its great restaurants before briefly emerging onto Regent Street and then down an alleyway called Swallow Street, with its restaurants, to emerge onto Piccadilly by St James's Church. Turning left will take you back to the lights at Piccadilly Circus past the Dilly Hotel.
