Piccadilly Circus is one of London’s most famous landmarks and sightseeeing attractions.

Situated at the junction of five busy streets in the centre of London, Piccadilly Circus is dominated by huge neon advertising signs.

At its heart is a bronze fountain topped by a figure of a winged archer. The statue is popularly called Eros, the pagan god of love, but it was in fact designed in the 19th century as a symbol of Christian charity – a monument to Lord Shaftesbury, a philanthropist.

Piccadilly Circus is often wrongly spelt as Picadilly Circus or Picadily Circus
