This is the final instalment of this mini series called Pie’s London, inspired by a request from one of my readers. I have taken you to Covent Garden and Soho. Now I will give you a taste of Piccadilly. This is not an area I know as well as the others and I wouldn’t choose to be there on a night out. Like Chelsea and Kensington, it’s smart, but needs to loosen its tie a bit for me to enjoy it. The advertising display and the statue of Eros at Piccadilly Circus are so commonplace to me now that I don’t even notice them anymore. Having said all that, because I had a walk around and took pictures with my crappy camera for the benefit of you, dear reader, I started to see Eros, and other parts of Piccadilly in a (slightly) different light.
So let’s get the obvious, touristy bits out of the way. Here are the lights at Piccadilly Circus:
And here’s Eros, with added pigeons.
