Named after the house of a tailor Roger Biker who became famous for selling piccadils, the Piccadilly Circus, originally called the Piccadilly House, is not a circus. It used to be a circle or ring-shaped public area but has become square shaped over time. Piccadilly House was the residence of Roger Biker, who used to make Piccadils, which are stiff-neck frilled collars worn by the gentrified in the 17th century.
One of the busiest junctions in the city, the Piccadilly Circus, also known as Times Square of London, is situated in London’s West End. With Leicester Square, Regent Street, Haymarket, Shaftesbury Avenue, and Oxford Circle all being connected to this place, it makes for a great tourist attraction.
