Thomas Kinkade's Piccadilly Circus

In 2002 on a trip to Europe I had the pleasure of visiting Piccadilly Circus in London’s West End.
In the center of Piccadilly Circus stands the Shaftesbury Monument Memorial Fountain.
It is topped by Alfred Gilbert’s winged nude statue known as The Angel of Christian Charity popularly known as Eros after the mythical Greek God of love.

According to Wikipedia: The phrase “it’s like Piccadilly Circus” is commonly used in the UK to refer to a place or situation which is extremely busy with people. It has been said that a person who stays long enough at Piccadilly Circus will eventually bump into everyone they know.

I cannot find any reference of it online now, but at the time I visited I was told that if you went to Piccadilly Circus at midnight and professed your undying love to someone in the view of the statue of Eros you would be guaranteed eternal love with that person.


What do you think of the Thomas Kinkade painting?
