I personally don't really like shopping in Oxford St, it is more of a torture than anything else, but I like shopping in this square instead. It has lovely shops, which range from the affordable (ie. Kew) to the prohibited ones (Mulberry), so you can find something for all pockets pretty much. And if not, you can just have a coffee in Apostrophe, sitting on one of their high stools by the window, or enjoy more of an al fresco experience sitting on Carluccio's terrace instead.
In any case, you definitely will find a way to pass the time :)
Btw, the square is not particularly pleasant at the moment as it is going through some renovations but hopefully this will be done before the Olympics start (I am guessing they will be planning having it all done by then) and we can continue enjoying the pleasure of a lazy afternoon in St. Christophers Place very soon.
As others have said, this is an oasis of quiet amidst the hustle and bustle of the West End. I can't add more to that other than that the best thing for me is the availability of free clean public toilets!

Almost hidesn from view if you’re walking down Oxford Street at rush hour, the entrance to St Christopher’s Place can feel like the gateway to a secret garden.
It’s certainly a lot quieter and more serene as soon as you turn off the main thoroughfare and make your way into the courtryard surrounded by shops, restaiurants, pubs and bars.
Let’s not kid ourselves; this is still central London so there’s a Pizza Express, a Carluccios and a La Tasca, but there’s also some great greek and italian indpendent restaurants dotted around, so it’s well worth a visit.
The amount of times I have carefully pulled at the strings that make Oxford street, loosing for new leads, places with a spark… and then yesterday I find a perfect little lane that I would swear literally appeared in that moment!
They have a great blend of boutique stores, gifts, clothing, pubs and food joints. I can’t work out how this area is such a secret, but I’m willing to stay hush about it! If you do see some pastel flags flapping gently, slow moving people and sweetly decorated shops then you know you have arrived…
I didn’t know about St Christopher’s Place until a friend took me there after work last week. It’s fantastic! Lots of restaurants and places to have an after work drink all in one place! We ate at Carluccio’s which was lovely and stayed for a few drinks. I fully intend on going again soon and exploring!
As someone else said St Christophers is a real hidden gem just off Oxford Street, I’m sure many of the usual tourists milling about all day must walk past the entrance without noticing it, not that thats a bad thing. Loads of great pubs and restaurants and a great atmosphere. Everyone I’ve taken here has absolutely loved it.
St Christopher’s Place has a chequered history, once a hovel and threatened with re-development, now it is a popular place to shop and chill if Oxford Street gets too much.
There is often live music and al-fresco dining, weather permitting.
The shops are designer, but the sales make it affordable, my favourite is Ollie and Nic, oohhh, handbags…..
A real hidden gem just off Oxford Street. With a large selection of cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants, including Carluccio’s, Apostrophe and La Tasca to name a few, this is the perfect place to get away from the usual West End tourists after a long day of shopping. Unfortunately however it seems the secret is out, as it is increasingly difficult to get a table at these ever popular restaurants.
