    Survivor guide: Christmas shopping on Oxford Street


    Survivor guide: Christmas shopping on Oxford Street

    As Christmas 2013 gets closer, more of us will be looking to start buying our gifts sooner rather than later to avoid queues. One place however that will always have queues in the run-up to Christmas is London’s Oxford Street. Full of people, busy Oxford Street is for many part of the festive atmosphere. One thing that shoppers do not want to take home with them however, is an injury after having an accident.

    How can I avoid an accident when Christmas shopping on Oxford Street this year?

    • Plan ahead
      Although easier said than done in regards to Christmas shopping, if you can plan ahead then you could visit Oxford Street earlier in the year when there are not as many people frantically shopping for last-minute gifts, you can reduce your risk of having an accident in the crowds.
    • Consider hazards while Christmas shopping
      With so many shoppers rushing around trying to find the perfect gift, sometimes shops themselves become hazardous. Fallen boxes, and even Christmas decorations themselves, in shops could be the cause of a fall or trip during the festive season.
    • Look at the weather before going Christmas shopping
      Although snow may add to the festive spirit, it may also cause many accidents and falls in public places such as Oxford Street over Christmas. If you are planning on Christmas shopping in a crowded place such as Oxford Street, then look at the weather before planning your journey. Snow, wind and rain can all contribute to slips on shop floors, and even road traffic accidents, or injuries on public transport.
