Piccadilly Circus has to be the most famous road intersections in the world. It's iconic for several reasons – the unique architecture surrounding it, the iconic advertisements that adorn the buildings, the statue of Eros in the middle. The statue is officially known as the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, as it was built in 1893 to commemorate the good deeds of philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury. Piccadilly Circus is an ideal destination for anyone hoping to visit Chinatown, Soho's theatre district, Leicester Square or Trafalgar Square.
