Piccadilly Circus is London's hub. Five major roads converge here - most of the theatres are within a few hundred yards of it.
At night the huge advertising hoardings are lit up - advertising English brands like McDonalds, Samsung, Fosters and Coca-Cola
At the centre of the area is the statue of Eros which was unveiled in 1893. It was intended by the sculptor, Sir Albert Gilbert, to be the Angel of Christian Charity, but Eros has persisted as the name.
Recent improvements have led to the area being less seedy than it had been!
