Piccadilly Circus

The Circus, once considered the hub of the Empire, attracts a large crowd. It was created by John Nash as part of his new road from Carlton House in St James's to Regent's Park. The Statue of Eros, officially the Angel of Christian Charity, is a memorial drinking fountain erected in 1892 to the philanthropist, Lord Shaftsbury.
