"Las Vegas Lights in London"
For many years, Piccadilly Circus, at the junction of five busy streets, has been a major London landmark, seen by many as the capitol's center. In the daytime it's a bustling area filled with shoppers, business people and tourists. But visit in the evening to see the area really come alive, with its illuminated signs and heady mix of clubbers and couples heading for a big evening out. At the heart of Piccadilly is a fountain topped with the aluminum statue of an archer. Although affectionately known as Eros by Londoners, it's actually the Angel of Christian Charity by Sir Alfred Gilbert, and it was so unpopular when first unveiled that he opted for self-imposed exile. Today, the statue is one of London's most famous sites and a haven for tourists and romantic couples alike. This is truly the gateway to the West End.
