Time Out says

This busy spot was built in 1819, as a way to connect Regent Street with Piccadilly. Over the years, it’s become an iconic London landmark thanks to the Shaftesbury Memorial, the statue of Anteros and the illuminated advertising hoardings (fun fact: the first ad was for Perrier in 1908).

One of my favourite places in london! Bright lights, good food, good entertainment and in the heart of theatre land! What ever time you come, the place is buzzing! Just a stones throw away from Oxford street and Leicester square this tourist attraction is a highlight on the London map! Top Tip try a vanilla milkshake at shack shack and people watch all day


Look at this picture - does it look CRAZY BUSY and FAST and BRIGHT and CHAOTIC? Welcome to Piccadilly Circus where it pretty much is a bit of a circus. It is all bright lights, big city, with taxis, buses, pedestrians, tourists, speedy walking Londoners all crowded into one place. The big billboards are eye catching with the entrance to Regent's Street being the dominant street leading off this round about. No doubt you'll be off to the theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue? Yah? There's so many shows in and around the area with tourist shops selling Emoticon cushions and Union Jack hats and such the like. My top tip is to keep your belongings close to you, as it can be crowded and keep your wits about you.
