Liverpool Street to Bank
On leaving Liverpool Street station I go down Old Broad Street. In front is Tower 42 formerly known as the Natwest Tower. It is the tallest building in the City of London. Another highly visible building is the former London Stock Exchange Tower.
When I walk down Threadneedle Street the Bank of England comes into view. Opposite is the entrance to Bank tube station.
Bank to St. Paul’s
Next I walk along Poultry and Cheapside.
After passing St. Paul’s Cathedral I arrive at the underground station.
St. Paul’s to Chancery Lane
On Newgate Street I see the London Stock Exchange and the Old Bailey. At the top of the Old Bailey is the statue of Lady Justice.
On the way to Holborn are a variety of office buildings.
At the junction with Gray’s Inn Road I get to Chancery Lane.
Chancery Lane to Holborn
On High Holborn are plenty of black cab taxis.
Here is Holborn underground station.
Holborn to Tottenham Court Road
I make my way onto New Oxford Street which leads to Oxford Street.
Further along New Oxford Street is an umbrella shop and a good vantage point for viewing the 32 storey Centre Point tower.
In the shadow of Centre Point is Tottenham Court tube station.
Tottenham Court Road to Oxford Circus
After Tottenham Court Road station New Oxford Street becomes Oxford Street. The shopping street is full of people and buses at this time of day.
Just this week there was a story that people carrying advertising boards might be banned from Oxford Street in an attempt to make the area more upmarket. I pass the Plaza shopping centre and then reach Oxford Circus tube station.
