Streets of London: Oxford Street

Busy Busy Oxford Street. Not the place to be if you don't like traffic and crowds. If you want to see loads of red buses though, this is definitely the place to be. Known for its "Red Wall". Taken about two months ago.

  1. Any idea where the "circus" bit comes from (e.g. "Oxford Circus")?

    1. Circus actually means a circular open area at the street junction. Oxford circus and Piccadilly Circus are huge intersections which are somewhat circular. They intersect with Regent Street. They are pretty cool. John Nash designed them :)
