Really love this area for its variety of things to do. The buskers and street performers made the whole area so lively. Even if you have nothing to buy, still worth just taking a stroll around to take it all in. Glad we went!
There are a lot of restaurants around the square as well as souvenir stores and other specialty stores.
I would make a special trip just to see this but if you are in the area not a bad idea to check it out.
Piccadilly Circus in London is charming, but is no Times Square! It does have the best gift and souvenir shoppe we found in London, and there was a cool guy levitating as Yoda the day we were there, but a short visit was sufficient on...More
My son and I were walking around London at night and ended up at Piccadilly Square. So bright with LED and neon signs, it almost seemed like daytime. Reminded us of a London Times Square. Highly recommend if you like lively cityscapes!

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
junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
There's a kiosk called TKTS right on Leicester Square, near Piccadilly. You can buy same day show tickets there. I think there are more of these kiosks. Google map TKTS and Leicester Square and you'll see it
