Piccadilly Circus Tours

star-4.5
3,684 Reviews
Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus is the meeting place of many of London's most famous roads. Here beautiful Regent Street (shopping heaven), famous Piccadilly (Fortnum and Mason's, The Ritz, the Royal Academy of Art), and cultural Shaftsbury Avenue (theaters, Chinatown) intersect. In the middle of it all is the famous 1893 statue of Eros, the winged messenger of love, which commemorates Lord Shaftesbury.

The circus was originally created as part of a plan to connect Carlton House, the home of the Prince Regent who became King George IV in 1820, to Regent's Park. When Shaftesbury Avenue was created in 1885, the area became busy with traffic and advertisers saw the potential for advertising; in 1895 London's first illuminated billboards were put up in Piccadilly Circus. For the next century it was London's version of Times Square but now only one building carries billboards. For history buffs, the name Piccadilly dates from the 17th century and comes from piccadill, a type of collar or ruff.

Practical Info

Given that it's in the heart of the West End, it's hard not to end up in Piccadilly Circus at some time. Hordes of buses pass through and underneath is Piccadilly Circus tube station with entrances popping up at all corners of the circus.

Piccadilly and Polonium: The Alexander Litvinenko Affair Audio TourPrivate Sightseeing Tours

Piccadilly and Polonium: The Alexander Litvinenko Affair Audio Tour

As an intelligence guide and writer, I've been researching, creating, and delivering in-person tours on THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL for many years. Clients include members of the intelligence, military and diplomatic communities from around the world. I created this London Solo Spy Tour so you can enjoy a content-rich, informative and thought-provoking spy tour all for yourself. After all, with London the undisputed spy capital of the world, it would be criminal not to! And speaking of criminal, this tour takes you on a journey involving one of the most shocking acts to have taken place in central London in recent years. It brought about a major police investigation, a thorough official Inquiry, and it thrust the murky worlds of Russian intelligence, political, and business affairs into the limelight. The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.

The Cheese Tour - with glass of prosecco

Guided tours are a great way to see the best of London, but trudging round the landmarks can lack a certain appeal. On this walking tour with a difference, starting in Mayfair, tuck into some of London's finest blue cheese, in a cheese counter that's been serving the whey too eager public for over 300 years. This place sells literally tonnes of Stilton every December! Fortnum & Mason is where even the royals get their dairy fix. Stop off in the last remaining store of Little Italy in Soho, dine on some of the best baked Camembert in Covent Garden.
