All those phrases about it being as busy as Picadilly Circus are true. I used to work in what was H. Samuel on the Shaftsbury Avenue Corner, next door to Boots, where there is now a gap store. On certain days at certain times it became almost impossible to go outside the shop to look into the window. The saturday's in December and Christmas Eve being particulary bad times. Although most Saturday afternonns can be quite hectic.

Absolutely wonderful Chinese supermarkets near there too. Very cheap and with everything you could imagine. Last week I bought a huge bottle of hot chili sauce and fortune cookies. smiley - smiley
I went to the theatre and on to eat in Chinatown. Then I drove around Picadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square on a Saturday evening, although this is not for the fainthearted!
