For many years, Piccadilly Circus - at the junction of five busy streets - has been a major London landmark, seen by many as the capital's center. In the daytime its a bustling area filled with shoppers, business people and tourists. But visit in the evening to see the area really come alive, with its sparkling illuminated signs and heady mix of clubbers and couples ready for a big evening out. At the heart of Piccadilly is a fountain topped with the aluminum statue of an archer. Although affectionately known as Eros by Londoners, it's actually the Angel of Christian Charity by Sir Alfred Gilbert, and it was so unpopular when first unveiled that he opted for self-imposed exile. Today the statue is one of London s most famous sites and a haven for tourists and romantic couples alike. This is truly the gateway to the West End.
I absolutly loved all the hussle and bussle of picadilly circus and the sights are brilliant as is the shopping. the tube station is right in the thick of it all and easy to get to. Caint wait to go back and show my mum.
I loved the fact that everything is there! shopping.. food .. entertainments.. everything is just a small walk away! I loved it! I loved it! I loved it! this city never sleeps and fashion is just at tops!
It's not actually a circus, y'know. ;-)
Still it is full of fun clothing shops, cinemas, and record stores full of some hard-to-find-in-the-US CDs. Don't kid yourself, though, bring all your credit cards, and avoid the area if you didn't come to spend money!
Look elsewhere if you're looking for a good restaurant-- there is a McDonald's smack in the centre of Piccadilly, and that is all you need to know about the dining standards there.
