Piccadilly

Piccadilly – The World’s High Street 

Tyne O'Connell Eros Piccadilly

   

Piccadilly, Mayfair – stomping ground of the dandy, the dandizette, the aficionado of caviar, pearls and cigars, and the neck on nothing young bloods of the fancy.

Wide and straight by London standards this glorious street is home to The RItz Hotel, The Royal Academy of Art, Fortnum and Mason’s and the Burlington Arcade to mention just a few of its many legendary tenants.

Piccadilly runs from Hyde Park Corner at the south west corner of Mayfair to Piccadilly Circus in the south east corner. The area of St. James’s lies to the south of the eastern section of Piccadilly, with Green Park  to the south of the western section and everything to the north forming Mayfair.
