Frideswide Square once known as station junction, has had a fascinating history.

It’s now a popular shared space where drivers give way to allow pedestrians to cross.

But despite a £6.7m revamp in 2015, it is looking rundown in places and several shops and restaurants are empty.

Amanda Suliman-Bell, who runs Rainbow and Spoon Boutique, wants Nuffield College to make efforts to find a new tenant to fill the former Original Condor restaurant.

The premises has been closed for several years and Ms Suliman-Bell said the empty units made the area look rundown.

She added: “The Original Condor closed a few years ago and the premises has deteriorated - the window is boarded up and it just looks terrible.

“The former La Croissanterie cafe also closed a couple of years ago and Frideswide Square looks shabby and tired.

"It’s one of the main gateways into the city and tourists arriving on the train must get such a bad first impression of Oxford.”

Nuffield College says it is actively seeking new tenants for premises.
