Add the fact...more
One of the deeper Tube stations, Oxford Circus is proud of its escalators. From street level, it's a long ride down to the platform. No cellular coverage down here, that's for sure!
This station is nearly as confusing as Bank. It's quite easy to get confused and end up coming out the absolutely wrong exit/entrance. There are labels, but it will help if you look at Google Street Maps to figure...more
