Piccadilly Circus is one of those iconic places to visit in London despite the fact there isn’t really much to see there. There is, of course, the famous advertisements but at the end of the day – they’re just that – ads.

Do pay a visit to the statue of Eros at the center of the circus. There’s plenty of shopping around and places to eat. There’s also a tourist attraction or two. While The Trocadero sounds cool and exotic there’s actually nothing really inside and it’s currently being turned into a hotel.

It’s worth a 5 minute stop on your way to somewhere else.
