    They are indeed. The west end is normally packed at the weekend. The one day of the week when on-street parking is free, and not £1 per 15mins.

    Doubt they're totally 24/7. If you want to experience 24/7 life, head over to Hong Kong. Man, you do absolutely everything that is available there 24/7, even on Xmas day!

    As for the Sunday thing, what annoys me is that the shops have to close so early. I mean, on a Sunday, I tend to want to have a lie in, so I get up later, then find and fight for a parking space in the city centre (as there's so many Sunday shoppers), and end up with like 30mins left before the shops close!

    You'd be surprised how busy Oxford Street is at 5am, or at any time for that matter.

    Anyone know how late Carphone Warehouse on Oxford Street opens to tonight? Really need a mobile and I won't get back into London till about 6pm.

    Well its the law... Sunday trading laws- nothing to do with alcahol

    And as a shop worker anyone who expects me to work until 10:00 at night can rock off! its bad enough at christmas- not all year round aswel
