There are plenty of things to do at Piccadilly Circus! There are many stores to buy clothes, accessories, souvenirs and much more. It's full of restaurants and fast food places to grab a bite, it's ten minutes away from Westminster and close to Buckingham palace as we'll, it's the very centre of London and there's entertainment in the afternoon as...

Depending of the time of Day you visit you'll have either extremes. Go there early morning and its quiet enough you can photograph the Eros statue with none else in the frame. Go there in the evenings and you'll be lucky to see anyone in the crowds. I love the billboards nowhere else like it in London or even the... More

I always dreamed of taking a photo in front of the famous Lights, with adverts of different brands. We were there in the evening & the area bustled with activity. It was quite nice to move around the different cultures encountered. The fact it was drizzling made everything more cool! The area is not far from either Trafalgar Square or... More

No matter how many times I visit here each experience is unique to the previous one. On my last visit there was Paddington Bear, a group of street dancers and lots of busy shoppers darting in all directions. So much to enjoy and explore. Each route from here leads to something exciting.

Walking in the center of London, you are waiting to see the most famost places of it. And just 10 minutes walk from Trafalgar square and Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) you can find this big oasis of lights and advertisment. The funniest thing that it doesn't ruin charm of ancient city, moreover it shows contrast of it. By the way... More

Just a crowded area in London that has the Eros Statue as a focal point, Crowded area in London that has no 'Special Appeal'. In all reality it's just a walk thru to Trafalger Square.
