Garth - what a s***** circus Wayne - good call! There’s no animals or clowns! Seriously though, it’s nothing special. Loaded with tourists, and everything around it is overpriced.

Busy during the day, there’s loads to see and do. However, at nigh time it’s spectacular all lit up.

Hasn't changed in 40 years and still a great vibe & sights. The Circus appears to draw all sections of society and the street performers are still entertaining & wild !

We had a little look around here today and enjoyed the atmosphere. It's literally 2 minutes from Leicester Square so all adds to a nice walk. Lots of places to eat and drink and plenty of photo opportunities. Check it out :)

It doesn't matter what time of the day or night that you come here, it is always very busy. It's a great location to walk down to Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square, or up to Soho and China town. There are lots of tourist shops...More

As long as you wish to spend. You can simply see it and move on, about 10 minutes to take a look around and some photos. Or you can grab an ice cream, sit down, and soak up the atmosphere.

There's a kiosk called TKTS right on Leicester Square, near Piccadilly. You can buy same day show tickets there. I think there are more of these kiosks. Google map TKTS and Leicester Square and you'll see it
