Piccadilly CircusRight 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. On the south side of the circus you'll find the Statue of Eros atop the Shaftesbury memorial fountain - this angel is a London icon. Nearby stand some of London's best theatres. Behind the Eros statue you'll find the entrance to the Criterion Theatre, a 600-seater built entirely underground. Just up Shaftesbury Avenue are the Piccadilly Theatre, Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue, Apollo Piccadilly, Palace Theatre and Queen's Theatre amongst others. On the west side at No. 1 Piccadilly is a giant music megastore, whilst sports enthusiasts can pick up some bargains at Lillywhite's. Leicester Square and St James's Park are just a short walk. Piccadilly Circus Tube Station gives access to the Piccadilly and Bakerloo tube lines.
