Lois Ronberg says:
"Stand in the middle of Picadilly Circus, turn slowly, 360 degrees, all that is London surrounds you. Well some things are missing, of course, but at Piccadilly Circus you will experience old buildings, theatre, modern, massive signage, the underground, shopping, offices, restaurants, statues, heaps of double-decker red buses and plenty of history. In the middle of it all is the impressive Eros statue. He is the little archer who stands above this central, extremely hectic traffic area where several major streets converge. Itís called ĎCircusí from the Latin word, circle. It was initially formed in 1819 to control the traffic flow in this part of London. As a little girl, growing up in New Zealand, my knowledge of England was regular pictures of the mighty, colourful signs of a well-known fizzy drink, flashing gaudily above the square. When I first visited London, a decade ago, Piccadilly Circus was my first stop, after Heathrow Airport. It still lures me after about 20 visits to Englandís capital city. Every time I go there, I am joined by hundreds of people sitting around Eros Statue and others taking photos of this beautiful iconic piece. Nearby there is another large, black statue of horses which doubles as a water feature, itís on the corner of Coventry street and the Haymarket - well worth a photo. Two other buildings to note here are the Criterion Theatre and London Pavilion which will interest those seeking out historic, pleasant architecture. This is the West End of London and you will be able to do some major shopping from here, along Regent Street which runs down from Oxford Street, into Piccadilly Circus and along to Pall Mall. Take a walk down past the London Trocadero shopping arcade to Leicester Square with all its theatres or to Trafalgar Square where you can visit the free National Museum. You should include Piccadilly Circus in your London trip when visiting the United Kingdom, anytime of year. "
