The Clarendon Centre or Clarendon Shopping Centre1 is a shopping centre in central Oxford, England2 It is located to the west of Cornmarket Street and to the north of Queen Street It is accessible from both of these streets and is l-shaped There is also an entrance on Shoe Lane, off New Inn Hall Street

The area was the site of an early archaeological study in the 1950s3 On this site was the Clarendon Hotel in Cornmarket that grew from two former coaching inns, the King's Head and the Star Below was a 12th-century undercroft

The Clarendon Centre was built in 1983–4, designed by Gordon Benny and Partners2 On the opposite side of Cornmarket is the more historic Golden Cross shopping arcade, located in one of the old coaching inns of Oxford, leading to the Covered Market4 Also at the western end of Queen Street is the Westgate Shopping Centre, completed in 1972

In 2012, a plan to extend the centre floorspace by 10% was put forward5 Archaeologists carried out an excavation beneath the site to discover remains of occupation from the 17th century and earlier6
