It was built in 1819 in order to connect Regent Street with the main shopping street called Piccadilly (The term ‘circus’ was added for open circular space, located at an intersection of streets). Currently directly connects theaters on the avenue Shaftesbury, with Haymarket, Glasshouse street Y Coventry Street
