If you love shopping this is a must place to visit when you go to London. January is an awesome time to shop for all the markdowns and sale. You have to shop early in the day as it gets so crowded.

Piccadilly Circus is a glamorous and busy traffic junction in London. Famous London streets merge at the Piccadilly circle. the heart of the West End. At night the place became magical and glowing for the large illuminated billboards. Since 1954 Coca - cola has their sign over here. This place is worth a visit as there are plenty of shops... More

Visited late evening, was heavily crowded with tourists and brightly lit up with neon’s. Good place for food as this area is filled with restaurants and many by roads too, good for long exploring walks.

The circus has to be seen at night to appreciate the fantastic neon signs. But even during the day thus bustling part of London is well worth the visit. It's central for Leicester Square Chinatown regents st and Piccadilly. It's a 24 hr location

From J Boy of Derby I have been visiting this place for years. Once known as the Hub of the British Empire this place is a must see attraction for any visitor to London. The most exciting time to come is night especially Saturday's when the crowds heave and jostle on the pavements and the traffic is very often snarled... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
