Piccadilly Christmas LightsThis year sees Piccadilly treated to its first-ever dedicated Christmas lights display. With the switch on taking place on Tuesday 14th November, the display will be the West End's largest ever Christmas light scheme. Created by James Glancy Design Ltd, it will feature a series of dramatic, large-scale figures inspired by the statue of Anteros - the Greek mythological god of requited love - that has stood in Piccadilly Circus since 1983. The frames of five figures will be covered in sparkling white LED lights and hung high above Piccadilly.

About Piccadilly Circus

Right in the middle of the West End, Piccadilly Circus isn't a circus at all, but an enormous road junction where Piccadilly itself Regent Street, Shaftesbury Avenue and Haymarket all intersect. Formerly famed for its huge neon advertising hoardings, the twinkling lights are now confined to the building in the northwest corner. More about Piccadilly Circus
