Tigers in Town



Tigers in Town

In the 1700s, Oxford Street was famous for Circuses and Tigers

Location: Oxford Street, W1Y

Description: Who'd have ever imagined... but the joy and delight of Oxford Street in central London, yes that glorious place you often find yourself on, on a Saturday afternoon, trying to buy a tie whilst being bombarded with people, smells, pamphlets, oiks, pollution...

Was once a very different place.

Back in the 1700s, Oxford Street was the place to be to see circuses and 'tiger baiting' of all things. Bring back the tigers...this time with no baiting!
