Trafalgar Square used to be where all the night buses started from, back when there were fewer routes. There'd be one stop for buses going north and one for all the southbound ones - a nightmare on a Friday or Saturday night!
Now there are many more and they start at a number of different places - Oxford St, Victoria, Aldgate etc
I remember - and I miss those times. Trafalgar Sq. was like a great slow-moving vortex that would slowly over the late hours, draw in all the drunken waifs and strays in the city at the weekend - everyone who had missed that last tube or train… and then spin them out towards home again. The square was crawling with happy drunken people and you were usually guaranteed to meet an old friend or housemate (or make a new friend!) at one of the bus stops, burger stands or buying tomorrow’s papers.
Would you like to go with me?
