Piccadilly Circus

Eros abides at the very centre of Piccadilly Circus; the area is also home to theatres, neon lights, major shops, hotels and much more. The name circus is from the Latin for circle which is exactly what Piccadilly Circus is! An Aladdin's Cave.

Piccadilly Circus is a circular open space with five streets leading from it and it's thought to be the busiest traffic circle in the world. The word Piccadilly came from an old English word for a frilled collar produced by a tailor around 1620 a "piccadil".

Piccadilly Circus is possibly the most visited site in London and is a centre of activity from morning to night. It is considered the London equivalent of Times Square.

The areas of Soho and Trafalgar Square are not too far to walk from Piccadilly. The trendy stores of Carnaby Street are also nearby. Travelling by tube to the region is very easy as the underground tube station is beneath the actual circus. (These are the Piccadilly and Bakerloo lines).

Piccadilly Circus is a major tourist attraction, people love Eros, the statue of love, but they also come to see other sights such as the neon lights and The Shaftsbury Memorial Fountain, as well as the Criterion Theatre a grade II listed building. Major Hotels in the vicinity include the very cool and artistic Radisson Edwardian MayFair, the iconic Waldorf Hilton and the friendly Le Meridien Piccadilly.

Piccadilly Street is the location of Fortnum & Mason, the really luxurious and prestigious shop that will provide the visitor with a hamper to die for; the Royal Academy, The Ritz Hotel and Hatchards book shop, where many famous authors choose to do their only London signing at Hatchards, which is why they always have such a large range of signed editions.

Locations near Piccadilly Circus which are accessible to the visitor and may give them a different perspective of London would be to the east Walthamstow with its market said to be the longest if not the largest open market in Europe, to the west is the multi-cultural Shepherds Bush, to the north is Islington and Highgate Cemetery, crammed full of gravestones, tombs, catacombs, monuments and mounds dating from Victorian times to the present day, and to the south there is Wimbledon, home to the World famous Wimbledon Tennis. Nearer to Piccadilly of course is Regent's Park, Oxford Street and Trafalgar Square.
