Golden Cross, Oxford


Golden Cross, Oxford

Golden Cross is a shopping arcade in central Oxford, England. It has been redeveloped as a number of small up-market shops from historic buildings in an alleyway to the east off Cornmarket Street, one of Oxford's main shopping streets. Golden Cross leads through to the historic Covered Market.

Golden Cross was originally a coaching inn. The poet Alexander Pope stayed here in 1735. The 15th century buildings have original timberwork and wall paintings exposed during restoration on the first floor in what is now a Pizza Express restaurant.
