OXFORD STREET – Architecture, Spectacle & The Condemned
Tuesday 08 December, 19.00 – 20.00
£5 BOOK HERE

Oxford Street is one of the most architecturally outstanding streets in Europe. Reviled and avoided by many Londoners, for sheer variety, few places can rival it and along its length is a sequence of neo-classical and baroque palaces, renaissance jewel boxes, art deco monuments and modernist icons all jostling for attention. Beneath the frenzy, it is one of the city’s oldest highways; a vital artery that for centuries has witnessed traders and travellers of all kinds, including that of the condemned on their way to the gallows at Tyburn. As traditional retail stands at a crossroads, this online walk looks again at Oxford Street and charts its evolution from ancient highway to retail behemoth through its most spectacular buildings and the developments central to its transformation.
