If the buskers, tour groups, smokers, selfie sticks and general cacophony don’t get to you, the music coming from the bars and restaurants will. And if all of that hasn’t made you wish you were someplace else, try figuring out the tube there. Too many...More

Like most travellers, I had known and read about Piccadilly Circus (Circus being a “round open space at a street junction”) for years before visiting London and it was great to finally see it in person in May 2018 (it harks back to 1819). There...More

Definitely one of London’s most recognized landmarks! If you’re around you should definitely come! It’s not the most breathtaking view of Londo but it’s surrounded by lots of shops. I loved walking from Oxford St all the way down to Picadilly!

... Eros has never looked better - we were there on Saturday for the nude bike ride which caused a few shocked expressions. Great entertainers etc + the advertising hoardings.

A take on new Yorks time square, so not quite as big, but what is the best about this area is keep you can walk along piccadilly to all the amazing shops for miles. Spacious side walks, a great toy store called Hamelys to visit....More

It is a popular tourist place and there are some interesting theaters nearby but this tends to be a little tacky and busy at times. Worth a visit however.

Be very careful here. At night especially you can get robbed. I got jumped by 3 guys who were trying to rob me just after midnight. Luckily I was able to fight them off. Beware of this area especially at night. It can be dangerous

Nice , It's if its "on your way" . Near a tube station , I was there in day light so maybe it's better to arrive at the evening .

We enjoyed wandering Piccadilly Circus! Reminded us of Times Square in New York City! It’s a vibrant, busy place! Lots of really nice stores and lots of souvenir shops! Got to PC via a hop off hop on bus tour. Glad we we Talked!

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

As long as you wish to spend. You can simply see it and move on, about 10 minutes to take a look around and some photos. Or you can grab an ice cream, sit down, and soak up the atmosphere.

There's a kiosk called TKTS right on Leicester Square, near Piccadilly. You can buy same day show tickets there. I think there are more of these kiosks. Google map TKTS and Leicester Square and you'll see it
