  • In the heart of the West End, this small crossroads plaza is known for its brightly-lit billboard (as pictured) and a statue of eros in a small fountain. A large outlet of Boots- The Chemist and a tube station of the same name is here.

    The Picadilly name comes from pickadils, a kind of rigid collars used by the ladies of the 18th Century as a complement. Rober Baker got rich selling those pickadils and built a luxury house in the area known by Englishmen and Englishwomen as "picadilly hall" just as a joke.
