Nearest Tube: Piccadilly Circus
Piccadilly Circus is to be found at the centre of Piccadilly and this small 'square' is considered by many to be the very heart of London.
The fact that Piccadilly Circus is now a major traffic junction with five major streets all converging on one another means that today the area is less fashionable than it used to be, but despite this, it remains a starting point for many tourists - and the crowds show that the area is still as popular as ever.
The most famous attraction in Piccadilly Circus is the Statue of Eros which acts as a central meeting point and is always teeming with visitors.
The Circus is also well known for its flashy neon signs which illuminate the Circus at night. These date back to the Edwardian era with the first electric lights being introduced to Piccadilly Circus in around 1910.
The other main tourist attractions that draw the crowds to Piccadilly Circus are the Rock Circus and the Pepsi Trocadero. These are all very popular and can get quite crowded, queues are likely at both the Rock Circus and the Pepsi Trocadero.
Nearby are Leicester Square, Chinatown and the shops of Oxford Street and Regent Street.
