Piccadilly Circus, crowded night and day, is one of the symbols of the city of London. Located in the West End, belongs to the district of Westminster, and is a place where we can find one of the most extensive offerings of leisure in the city. Piccadilly Circus is a circular plaza that connects many places for recreation and entertainment, restaurants, bars, theaters, shops, etc., a great place for people watching.
