Vibrant square in the center of London. Quality baskers performing constantly. Regularly change performers approx every half hour. Quality singers, groups on offer. Mimes are good but seen at several venues. Maybe they pay to perform and have different venues to perform at. Many different...More

Yes I do believe that the heart of London beats in Piccadilly Circus! Just sit down and feel the breeze of London! Great view of Regent street, double-decker buses, black cabs and whatever else reminds you that you are in LONDON!

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
