Charing Cross Road, London

(4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Charing Cross Road is a street in central London running immediately north of St Martin-in-the-Fields to St Giles Circus (the intersection with Oxford Street) and then becomes Tottenham Court Road. It is so called because it serves Charing Cross railway station (named for the nearby Charing Cross).HistoryCharing Cross Road was developed, in conjunction with Shaftesbury Avenue, by the Metropolitan Board of Works under an 1877 Act of Parliament at a cost of £778,238. The two streets and others such as the Thames Embankment, Northumberland Avenue, Kingsway and Aldwych were built to improve traffic flow through central London. It incorporated the routes of several older streets.

  • 不是很清楚為何《查令十字路》一書會特別以此為名,但是此處位居交通樞紐是一個很明顯的事實。Charing Cross本身是一個車站,許多國內班次都是從這裡出發,也連結到King's Cross、Waterloo與Victoria等。這附近也有許多著名觀光景點,如國會、皇宮、國家美術館、柯芬園等。我特別喜歡車站門口一個像是塔的雕刻,似乎看盡此處萬變,而仍保有當年初心。  more »
