It was created by John Nash as part of the future King George IV's plan to connect Carlton House - where the Prince Regent resided - with Regent's Park.

Sightseeing near Piccadilly Circus

- Leicester Square

Named for the 2nd Earl of Leicester, London's Leicester Square is at the heart of the city's prime entertainment district. The square is embellished with several monuments including a fountain dedicated to Shakespeare. It is the beating heart of British cinema, with all the major European premieres happening there - you'll often see crowds of fans, expectantly awaiting the arrival of the stars outside one of the state-of-the-art cinemas which line the square. Bronze casts of actors' hand imprints also remind you of the film star glamour associated with Leicester Square - Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Sir Ian McKellen are just some of the A-listers who've contributed. In the middle of the square is a small garden area with plenty of benches which are overlooked by statues of Shakespeare, Hogarth, Charlie Chaplin and 'the founder of scientific surgery', John Hunter, whose collection of 10,500 anatomical specimens were kept in his house on the square.

- Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square, the largest square in London, is often considered the heart of the city. Ever since the Middle Ages, this area has been a central meeting place. In the middle of the square stands a tall column honoring admiral Nelson. It's a must-see destination for visitors to London. You'll often find cultural events, performances, shows and other special activities going on in the square by the fountains. At Christmas you'll find the biggest Christmas tree in London, an annual gift from the city of Oslo.
