A famous road junction and public space in London's West End was built in 1819. It's famous for the neon signs installed all around the square, the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain (commemorating the works of Lord Shaftesbury) and the statue of Eros.

There are many shops and boutiques located either on the square itself or in the nearby area which is known as one of London's main shopping zones. There are also many bars, cafés and restaurants located nearby.

The square is a popular site for protests and demonstrations due to its size. The square also inspired many artists and musicians in their work. The Picadilly Circus also features in the opening sequence of the popular BBC TV series - Sherlock.
