London

The stretch known as Oxford Street is 1.2 miles long, running from Marble Arch to Tottenham Court Road. The stretch east of Tottenham Court Road, to Holborn, is New Oxford Street.

Oxford Street was previously known as Tyburn Road thanks to the now-buried Tyburn River which runs beneath it.
