- Eye-catching advertising surrounds you
- A major meeting point for both people and traffic
- Named after the elaborate collars seen in art from the 1600s
Piccadilly Circus is one of London's most popular tourist destinations, akin to New York’s Times Square, due to the iconic advertising screens that wrap around the square on all sides. Sit (if you can get a seat) by the statue of Eros, or take some photos in front of the iconic advertising screens.
Oh, and if you’ve been trying to figure out where the name comes from—the square is named after the Piccadils, a type of elaborate ruff often seen around the neck of lords and leaders during the 17th century.
