TOUR OF EMPTY OXFORD STREET London 390 bus route top deck Boris Bus



This is a long video of just the view from the top deck of a London 390 bus. I love sharing walks around London
(full playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtZM4-pHDwPmhVv2KuqmQcpv58ehRqhFk )
But this was 0945 on a regular Monday morning just before the quietness hit in March 2020.
Empty 390 bus from Victoria towards Archway, and the streets were bare.

Could only see one store closed, listed below.
This is a continuous view from the top deck front window of Oxford Street, and we also get to see the new box for the Tottenham Court Road Crossrail, Elizabeth Line station.
