Piccadilly area on a Sunday???

What is the Piccadilly area like on a Sunday? Are there still shops open and things on at night? We'll be visiting in July this year. Any recommendations for dinner?

Shops are restricted by law to opening 6 hours only on Sundays so most shops will close at 6pm. However there are many restaurants, theatres, cinema's and bars open especially round the west end that will be busy.

For dinner you could consider Brasserie Zedel.

In post 1 theatres are mentioned but be aware that most of them are closed on a Sunday.

Did you mean Piccadilly (the road by Mayfair) or Piccadilly Circus? Not being pedantic, but it makes a difference. In any event, widen your options to Soho/Covent Garden etc, which will be lively all evening.

There are some lovely shops on Piccadilly (the road) near to its Piccadilly Circus end. Waterstones bookshop has a great cafe on an upstairs floor that offers views across the rooftops of St James to Big Ben. Fortnum & Masons is stereotypically English and always has wonderful window displays, so a good place for ogling whether it's open or closed. I also love the shop windows of Jermyn Street (which runs parallel to Piccadilly). It's all tiny English speciality shops - gentlemen's barbers, cheeses, cufflinks, shirts, pipes, Floris perfumes etc. It has a great atmosphere the shops are open or closed. And in July it should be warm and light until well after 9pm.

And Piccadilly Circus itself seems to be teeming with people 24/7.
