It's a great street to go for a walk on. There are bookstores, small shops, and a few theaters. I enjoyed it a lot. Especially the book stores.

Charing Cross road is an iconic London Street and a gentle stroll down this street is an enjoyable experience. Its very central and there's plenty to see, places to eat and drink and enjoy.

The Charing Cross Tube station is located near Trafalgar Square off Charing Cross Road. It is a critical underground location as it connects to Leister Square and other prominent locations in London. It is an old station, but serves its purpose. It could use upgrades....More
