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. Growing up...More

I usually try to avoid Piccadilly Circus simply because it takes so much time to navigate through the large crowds.

Lively, vivid, crowded, fast... Amazing heart of London with various restaurants and clubs. Multiple metro stations intersect here so it's no problem at all reaching it.

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!

Apart from the scaffolding on the Criterion building, the whole place is looking very clean now, finally. What an outstanding landmark! Great for people watching especially now; summer!

If you don't like big crowds then Piccadilly is not for you. It's always crowded and noisy but I love big cities and that's what you get. It's a mini New York (to me) When I get tired of the huge crowd, I just walk...More

It reminded me of New York but smaller. A must see in London. It's vibrant and there's a lot to see here and in the surrounding area!

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

As long as you wish to spend. You can simply see it and move on, about 10 minutes to take a look around and some photos. Or you can grab an ice cream, sit down, and soak up the atmosphere.

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
