News has broken that furniture maze Ikea will be coming to Oxford Street. So that's good news for those of you that fancy getting on a bus home with a huge box of flat-packed Billy bookcases.
They're taking over the landmark Top Shop site on Oxford Circus and will make a big difference to Londoners who don't fancy having to trek out to the ones at Tottenham or Brent Cross or anywhere else that is nowhere near a tube station.
While it will be very handy indeed to easily restock on Ikea tumblers, there's really only one thing we really want to know - will there be meatballs? Apparently, the answer is yes - there will be room for a restaurant so that you can get as many meatballs, chips and lingonberry sauce as you can possibly handle. Think the queue for the restaurant in the Tottenham Ikea can get bad? Wait until this one opens.
We do have quite the wait though - it's not opening until Autumn 2023. So until then, your meatball quests will mean a trip to zone 3 and beyond.
