Not my favourite place but it is an iconic place to visit when you come to London. Lots of shops and restaurants as well as a main tube stop. Always busy and always lots going on.

From here one can walk to most of London including Shaftesbury Avenue and Soho. Everything else is a mere walk away. There is lots to see and do and many shops to go into.

Had a 4hrs stopover at Heathrow on my way from Zurich to Belfast. Took the subway from Heathrow to Piccadilly Circus. It‘s not very interesting. It‘s very busy. Stopped at Whole Foods for a snack.

One of most vibrant and happening place in London. A must visit place for all the tourist. You get food to pub to shopping district, everything in one place. Enjoyed my times there, every time I've been to London.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
