Banbury is a town in North Oxfordshire, England. The Banbury Cross, which is located on a roundabout in the middle of the town, was erected in 1859 to celebrate the wedding of Prince Frederick of Prussia to his bride, the original cross having been pulled down some 250 years earlier. Apart from the Cross, Banbury is also known for its Banbury Cakes (that Bloom feeds to the gulls in Lestrygonians).
