Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus and Shaftesbury Avenue

At the heart of Piccadilly lies Piccadilly Circus, known for its crowds, Eros Statue and wall of illuminated advertisements in the northwest corner. Originally constructed to connect Regent Street with Piccadilly, this busy junction has grown to become a tourist attraction in its own right.

Standing next to Eros gives you the best vantage point to see the imposing Grade II listed buildings surrounding the junction. Ripley’s of Believe It Or Not!, a museum full of oddities and curiosities from around the world, is also located here.

Piccadilly Circus joins the theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue with Haymarket, Glasshouse Street and Coventry Street, leading down to Leicester Square. There are plenty of hotels near Piccadilly Circus; while directly underneath the plaza there’s Piccadilly Circus Underground Station, where you can hop on the Piccadilly or Bakerloo lines.
