Oxford Street, London, runs from Marble Arch (Marks and Spencer) via Selfridges and John Lewis to Oxford Circus and another large branch of Marks and Spencer.
Marble Arch was designed by Nash as the entrance to Buckingham Palace in 1828, but the monarchy never managed to push their garden gates out that far.
Oxford Street today is perhaps the most popular of the shopping streets in the capital, as it contains most of the department stores catering for the middle of the market. On a wet day you can quickly scurry from store to store and while away many happy hours out of the rain.
