Oxford Street is still a big shopping destination, though not as important as when I was little. These days lots of the shops can be found in out of town shopping centres, so there’s no need to go all the way into town. I mainly go to visit the big department stores, HMV or Borders.
There have been plans to pedestrianise the street because of the sheer number of shoppers and the never-ending buses. People are too impatient to wait for traffic lights and just walk out in front of traffic – lots of near misses.over 4 years ago
