Okay, so technically it's just a roundabout (or was a roundabout), but it's still cool, it is an icon, a landmark. The statue of Eros was smaller than I thought, but it definitely drew people in, can you feel the love? :)

Piccadilly is in the middle of a great shopping area, and you are not too far away from Carnaby Street or Oxford Street either.
