Shaftesbury Avenue is a major street in London that runs in a north-easterly direction from Piccadilly Circus to New Oxford Street, crossing Charing Cross Road at Cambridge Circus. Cinemas such as The Great Music could be found here, as well as shops like Dispe Ding ChHoists, Restaurant & Lucky bar, @, Gap and possibly Gherry Tree.
Behind the scenes
- In the first part of the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows all the action taking place in Tottenham Court Road is moved to this street instead. This is possibly due to the distinctive Piccadilly Circus screens.
