Well it may not be the statue of Eros but Anteros his twin brother. However this is a great meeting point at Piccadilly Circus and whenever I visit I cannot resist taking a photograph.

Hoardings surround the base of the statue, and serve to dwarf the same. Whilst the statue was somewhat iconic to Piccadily it appears to has disappeared into insignificance. Unless you are looking out for it, it would be easy to just pass it by.

I can remember meeting friends (and girls) at Eros (yes we all know it’s actually Anteros) going right back to the 70’s - it’s a true London landmark. Tourists flock to the statue at Piccadilly Circus but it’s hard to know why, it’s not really...More

This is an iconic structure that is an ideal meeting point for anyone visiting London to ensure that they will see each other - like ‘under the clock at Waterloo’ Knowing the philanthropic history behind this makes it even more special as well

Whilst understanding why the hoardings put around the bottom of the statue take away from what is a great landmark.

Unfortunately at the moment you cannot get very close to this famous statue as the base is covered with construction materials so you are a bit limited if you want a photograph.

Worth spending a few minutes to look at the statue if you are passing through Piccadilly Circus. It is always busy around the statue not easy to get near especially with all the people who sit on the steps around it. Apparently it is actually...More

With all that is going on in Piccadilly Circus, this iconic statue is easy to miss. Regardless, stop and give it its due though you will need a sunny day to fully appreciate an impressive sculpture.

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
