Ripley’s at Piccadilly Circus

Some have compared Piccadilly Circus to Times Square in New York City. They are both unique intersections with large electronic billboards and attractions of all kinds. We arrived after a very long day of touring around London and I didn’t have my tripod, so I leaned up against a building across the street for this image.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! stood out from the other buildings that evening, lit up with it’s own colorful lights. The building is the former London Pavilion, which has been everything from a music hall, to a cinema, to a shopping arcade. Directly underneath the Circus is Piccadilly Circus tube station, part of the London Underground system.

  1. Nice capture Tim. I like the choice of composition with the union Jack flag! Nice to see you on my side of the pond!
