Oxford Street

Oxford Street is a major London shopping street, running from Marble Arch at the north east corner of Hyde Park, through Oxford Circus to St Giles' Circus, its intersection with Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road, where it becomes New Oxford Street until it runs into High Holborn.

Until 1782 it was known as Tyburn Street, after the River Tyburn that now flows underneath it.
