Probably one of the images that most tourists will have seen in photographs. The Circus seems always busy which is not surprising as it is in the heart of Theatreland. A great place to meet.

A nice part of Piccadilly Circus, but few people come here to look at the statue, instead going for the flashy signs. As such it almost seems wasted here and could be better highlighted on its own some other place in London.

This is a beautiful well sculpted statue, on a wide platform in Piccadilly circus. As the place is always busy (especially tourists) its hard to appreciate it sometimes.

Great to see The statue of Eros but situated where both where motorised and pedestrian traffic is very busy. Worth a visit and spending a few minutes looking at part of London's history.

The official name of the centrepiece is the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, named after the great Victorian philanthropist Anthony Ashley Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury. The sculpture of the fountain itself is of remark- able naturalistic proto-Art Nouveau invention, hence Pevsner's quotation "fishes of all kinds,...More

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
