We walked through this area during the day. Looked like construction being done so we didn't get the full effect. If we get back to London I would go through this area at night.

A great place to walk around and take in sights of London, the people and the buildings. As a tourist everyone should visit it at least once and it is along the Hop On Hop off Bus stops while in London

This square is a focal point of the area, It is like Times Square and a bit seedy. In the center you will find the famous Eros Statue. In every direction you will find stores and restaurants and many theaters are close.

Busy, touristy, but lively, interesting and exciting. What do you want to do? People watch? Theatre? Eat? Drink? All that and more, so visit to enjoy the liveliness of it all.

The circus is a round about at the end of Regent street , or Piccadilly depending from where your coming. The area is touristic with ample of activities, restaurants and cafes. At night it becomes extremely busy and beware of pick pocket. Overall highly recommended

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

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
