Really mainly used to enter/exit the station. Not the healthiest places to stand with all the traffic, but there are a lot of different sights to behold. There are a few independent shops here, along with a chippy, restaurant, newsagents, tanning salon. Always busy.

Nice piece of architecture to look at but sadly has taken its toll due to the increasingly seedy nature of the shops around it. This may be improving as a deli or two are moving in hit you have to survive the pen shops, chip...More

It used to be a nice thoroughfare but now, you get choked with car and bus fumes,approached by beggars or folk playing music begging. It does give access to the Central Railway station both high and low level. If you need to use, make sure...More
