With its station situated rubbing shoulders with both Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road, Tottenham Court Road is almost as central as you can get in London. As you emerge from the station you look up to see the huge deserted building that is Centre Point.

Situated nowhere near Tottenham if you head South you hit Soho or if you head North eventually you will find yourself in Camden.

The best thing about Tottenham Court Road was the enormous Fopp store that it once housed. This truly was an epic store better than anything HMV, Virgin or Zavvi ever mustered up. Of course it was too good to last or exist but I was still able to spend many special moments there such as the last day of work before Christmas in 2005 and include it as part of my 30th birthday celebrations.

Tottenham Court Road is also home to the London Church Of Scientology base.

Ricky Gervais has his offices along Tottenham Court Road, where he records his podcasts with Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington.
