Monopoly - Oxford St

Monopoly green Square. £300.

We have turned the corner and are on the last side of the board.

You need a much bigger wallet for this final stretch. Believe it or not Oxford Street forms part of the A40 following an old Roman road, although it is not intended as a major driving route anymore. Buses are generally backed up nose to tail making it quicker to walk. Be prepared for bruised shoulders however as this is possibly the most dense shopping street in Europe with 548 shops and thousands of people every minute of the day.
To ease congestion this diagonal crossing opened in 2009, the only one in central London. Not a good idea to cross once the lights have gone green for traffic, I've witnessed many accidents in this street.
