Piccadilly Circus at night

And here is the Piccadilly Circus later in the evening. I guess it never sleeps. Once it gets dark the streets are even more beautiful.

Piccadilly circus

The name 'Piccadilly' originates from a 17th century frilled collar named piccadil. Roger Baker, a tailor who became rich making piccadils lived in the area. The word 'Circus' refers to the roundabout around which the traffic circulated.

And in fact- this is one of the busiest roundabouts in London. Even at night.
