IPTC INFO
CaptionBuilt in 1819 to connect Regent Street with the major shopping street of Piccadilly the "circus" refers to "circular open space at a street junction" it now links directly to the theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue as well as the Haymarket Coventry Street onwards to Leicester Square and Glasshouse Street. Its proximity to major shopping and entertainment areas its central location at the heart of the West End and its status as a major traffic intersection have made Piccadilly Circus a busy meeting point and a tourist attraction in its own right. It is renowned for its video display and neon signs mounted on the corner building on the northern side as well as the Shaftesbury memorial fountain and statue known as 'Eros' sometimes called 'The Angel of Christian Charity' which would be better translated as 'Agape' but formally 'Anteros' - see below. It is surrounded by several noted buildings including the London Pavilion and Criterion Theatre. Directly underneath the plaza is the London Underground station Piccadilly Circus.
