Piccadilly Circus

Tourist attractions

Built in 1819 to connect Regent Street with the major shopping street of Piccadilly (the “circus” refers to “circular open space at a street junction”), it now links directly to the theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue as well as the Haymarket, Coventry Street (onwards to Leicester Square) and Glasshouse Street. Its proximity to major shopping and entertainment areas, its central location at the heart of the West End, and its status as a major traffic intersection have made Piccadilly Circus a busy meeting point and a tourist attraction in its own right.
