Ok, it's a tube station.. how awesome could it be? But its surroundings are a shopper's paradise. There are a ton of cute little shops and restaurants all along Bond and Oxford, and it is definitely very touristy. If you are into couture fashion, make sure you stop by Selfridges too! It's like a Bloomingdale's on crack.. I love it!
Argh. the first tube stop I ever needed in London and it was closed via the Central Line direction. So I had to head up one stop, get on Jubilee and work my way back. Of course that made me a bit late for my appointment as I didnt think I'd be going 3 steps out of the way. Next time Im in town? It's closed on both Central and Jubilee. Phooey
It's not the cleanest station, or the most organised, but it's okay.
The major plus point of this station is its location, both on the underground network and on the street. It's basically bang slam in the middle of Oxford Street so if you want to do a bit of shopping, I'd highly suggest you go to this one instead of Oxford Circus. It'll put you in the middle of all the stores and unless you want to go to Topshop, you'll just hit smaller repeats of the ones around this station at Oxford C. It's also on the Jubilee line so for me, it's perfect because it's one train straight to London Bridge and my connecting train. No train hopping for me!
The downsides are that because of its location, it's usually rammed. And not just with people, but people with HUGE bags. You'll rarely get a seat, people tend to be just that little bit meaner because of the stress of the shops and you need to get an escalator down from the main street which is too small for the amount of people using it.
It could also do with some better signage. Once you're in the station and heading for the Central/Jubilee line, there are two tunnels, both not signposted. Stuck in the flow of people, I had to take a punt on a tunnel which left me feeling a bit annoyed that I potentially had to navigate back through all the people.
However, If you don't care about all that and just want the quickest way to the best shops, this is your man. Or, station. Whatever.
Bond Street Station is located right in the heart of Central London, with tons of shopping, hotels and sightseeing nearby including the Wallace Collection and don't forget to wander past the American Embassy. Bond Street is a fine place for switching from the Central to the Jubilee lines.
Easy enough to access, aside from the major crowds of shoppers walking along the street.
