Accommodations in London near Piccadilly Circus (London, United Kingdom)

Piccadilly Circus (London, United Kingdom)

Piccadilly Circus is one of the iconic London sights and is a major intersection in the west end of London. It was originally built in 1819 to link Regent Street and Piccadilly. Today other streets also lead off it such as Haymarket, Shaftesbury Avenue and Coventry Street. The name “Piccadilly” comes from a piccadill, a type of collar once sold in the street now called Piccadilly. At the centre of the Circus is the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, named after the Victorian philanthropist, topped by the statue known as Eros. In fact the representation of the winged archer is Anteros, his twin brother, the god of selfless love, which was felt to be appropriate for Lord Shaftesbury. The fountain and statue were erected in 1892 and the statue was the first in the world to be cast in aluminium. The Circus used to be famous for its neon advertisements but only one building now carries them. Located at the centre of theatreland and close to Soho, the Circus is easily accessed by bus and tube: it has its own tube station served by two lines.
