Picadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus is both a meeting place and a tourist attraction. The illuminated advertising hoarding on the corner is one of the most popular motifs for the photo album. The memorial fountain with the statue of Anteros (popularly mistaken for his brother Eros) is a delightful place to sit and watch the world go by. Piccadilly Circus was built in 1819, and is a junction of five very busy streets. If you’re here on a shopping trip, you will automatically come to it. Be sure to take a break – and a photo or two!
