We got to Piccadilly Circus at 7.30am on a Saturday - not a sould around and you can enjoy the experience - an hour or two later and all you are doing is milling around with hundreds of other people! Do it EARLY!

We came down Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus saw the famous neon signs. Lots of tourist form all over the world walking around. Many young people sitting in the middle which seemed to be very popular.

A very hustle bustle place good for theater, dining, and people watching. Ticket brokers abound with last minute deals for shows. Or go to box office to see availabilty.
